Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
I do remember my first 'professional' client. He was kind, sweet and I knew from his reaction to my touch that I had found my purpose. Giving relaxation and pleasure was almost as exciting for me as it was for him!
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
Hmmm, I would not say that being a masseur is addictive. It is exciting and can be challenging to provide my clients with the relief they require. Fortunately I keep pretty busy so I do not foresee having to miss what I enjoy each day.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
Absolutely!!! My many repeat clients and the comments I receive after almost every massage is both rewarding and satisfying for me.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I am a humble man who gives my all to ensure that my clients leave MORE than satisfied and are already looking forward to their return visit. I take great pride in personal hygiene and providing a clean, safe and beautiful environment that is conducive to ultimate relaxation.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
"WOW that was excellent" is often what my clients say after their massage. I want them to feel refreshed, relaxed and thinking about their massage experience all the way home... and smiling!
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I am an architectural designer in my other life and creating a beautiful home is my spare time.
Why did you become a Masseur?
I actually kind of fell into becoming a masseur. I used to have a massage guy come to my house and he suggested that if I got my own table he would charge me less. Once I had the table I started giving massages to pretty much anyone who wanted it. I enjoyed it enough to go to school and then business started to build.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
Being a masseur is not for everyone. You really need to care about the well being of others and realize the difference between giving someone a back rub and providing someone with the skills needed to relax and relieve them.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
My clients say that I am the best because I am kind, gentle and truly care about their well being.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I have been a masseur for 4 years and look forward to many more.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I spend my summer months in the 1000 Islands on the Canadian border of upstate New York. I feel fortunate to be there for the summer months and enjoy the lake and peacefulness. Other than that I seldom travel as I do not like to leave me sweet dog alone.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
I would not say that 'extensive' training is necessary if you have the right touch and intuition. Some training is needed though to learn the anatomy of the body and how to safely give relief to sore and aching muscles.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
I like to think that my clients are leaving with a sense of relaxation and excitement.
