Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
My first client... that was a long time ago. I don't remember him specifically. What I do remember is getting a follow up email a few days later expressing their gratitude for their treatment and how they were still feeling the wonderful effect and feeling of their massage.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
That's not for me to declare. But, I do enjoy a very high rate of repeat clients. I'm only as good as my last massage. I work very hard to keep the standard at its highest.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
I can easily say yes. And, yes, I did miss my masseur days and that's why I'm back at it. For me, to give a massage is moment of meditation.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
My objective with every client is to invite them into a moment with themselves to where they can be unconditionally free and accepting in their skin. That at the end of the session they achieve a level of complete relaxation, inner calm, a silent mind.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I'm a perpetual student of life. I seek new experiences, destinations, flavours, languages.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
A good masseur is always training. Formal certification is important as it's a guarantee to the client that the masseur knows and understands the physiology of the body and how it works and how to work the musculature to avoid causing injury. Beyond that, it's important to continuously study and explore different forms of treatment and approach to find one's niche and style and evolve.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
that they have just done something important and necessary for themselves, self-care.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I’m a creative person. I work professionally in the Arts. That side of my life is intense and loud. My massage practice is the quiet side that keeps me centered.
