TRANscendentTuch's Massage Interview
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
When I'm with a client, I feel I'm most successful in the moment because they are reacting to my touch. There is so much to learn and I'm learning all the time.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
It's easy to miss something when you're still so new. Touch is such a deep part of who I am within my intimacy and ways of communication. It would really make me sad if I was unable to touch another person. I know this was a challenge for me during the earlier Pandemic days, and I'm not the only one.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
Balanced, healthy, and in a state of bliss. I want my clients to be sad to leave me and already asking when they can return.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
My purpose is to anchor unconditional love into Gaia and The Collective.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I have more interests than not AND I would say being in nature and animals, the arts (including cooking!), and all things spiritual and metaphysical earn my excitement.
Why did you become a Masseur?
I'm obsessed with intimacy. I believe deepened intimacy is a critical part of what is is to be alive and a foundation of unconditional love. When we love ourselves unconditionally, we can love all others. I wish to anchor love and healing into the world and touch is one of my favorite ways to do that. Because I'm an Energy Healer, I'm able to do a healing dance with light and touch in a way, which stimulates something in people which is hard to describe - it's wonderful.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
My expertise is within plant-powered spiritual wellness, so my methods are focused on those who are open and interested in the combination of plant spirit, spiritual wellness, and massage.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I have been massaging my partners and friends for fun on and off since I was a teenager, however I would say my technique really started to form in college. I am new to massaging professionally, however I don't believe that whether I hold a title or not is as valuable as the experience I have had, as well as provide. I would like to continue as long as I am excited about it, providing excellent service, and am well enough to. I'm early on and plan to be around a long time. It would be an honor and deep satisfaction to have long-term clients.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I love to travel and will travel as much as possible at this time. Though I enjoy being home with my two fur babies (cats - Rory and Amy), I also love to see the world, meet new people, and bring my gifts where I feel called. I travel most frequently between New York (I'm from NYC), Los Angeles (where my HQ now) and Santa Fe, NM. That said, I would love to travel all over the place. I'm honored to meet you where you are!
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
I want my clients to feel as though they wouldn't have had their experience go any other way. They are so blissed out and relaxed thinking about anything outside of the present moment is impossible. All of their worries and pains have vanished. They are excited to return and sad to leave.
Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
I do! It was their first time too and they seemed to enjoy it! I feel as though the moment I chose to become a masseur, I accepted myself that much more. I really embodied a part of myself I hadn't explored professionally, and I was eager to serve in such a powerful way.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
If you're someone who loves to give and touch, who honors consent, and wishes to explore a profession where they can provide layers of deep healing - consider it!
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
Training in a hands-on field such as this one can certainly be helpful and training cannot teach everything. The passion, empathy, spiritual and metaphysical gifts, as well as the intuitive touch is something that can be groomed, however is a part of that persons nature. Someone can also experience training from someone who isn't a proper provider and can even de-program the intuitive nature someone has. Not everyone is the same and therefore, one could consider a Masseur who who is intuitive to be the most desired - one who can meet everyones' needs.
