Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
I decided to do massages while getting my degree in natural science, focusing on paramedical skincare. My school had a massage department and we would trade services. I learned quite quickly how to massage and decided to practice this art form while making extra money for school. I was very nervous my first time, but my client was quite pleased and so I felt relieved.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
I believe I would. I can’t see myself stopping what I love to do so much. Not only do I get satisfaction seeing my clients release their stress, but it gives me relief to do body work. It’s like meditation for me.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
Indeed I do consider myself successful. After nearly 1000 massages performed and zero complaints, I find that to be a good ratio for success. 🤗
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I would love for my clients to know that I am extremely friendly and have a great vibe. They can rest assure they will feel embraced with warmth once they see my initial smile and that although my brawny deep dark Latin eyes can me in some way intimidating, I’m as sweet as a puppy.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
Like they usually do. With a look of relief and a permanent smile. 🤤
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I love traveling, going to the gym and I’m an excellent cook. I also love creating art pieces.
Why did you become a Masseur?
College was very expensive and in school I was told I had great hands by my classmates. It was an easy way to make money while doing something I enjoyed doing.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
That is a great career path you can take. That making people feel good can be so rewarding.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
I can’t really pin point my point of difference since there are so many talented colleagues out there. But what I can tell you is that I really, really, really enjoy what I do and I do it with pleasure.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
15 years and not planning to stop anytime soon.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I’m the perfect balance of both, traveling and staying at home. As much as I enjoy nice hotel rooms and amenities, I also enjoy my spacious and cozy apartment.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
Yes, like any other skill, the more you practice, the better you become. You can’t come for experience.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
Like they just stepped out of a warm safe place where they can leave their stress behind and go on with having a great rest of the week.
