Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
Indeed I do! At the time I was already teaching Men's Naked Yoga. Classes and private instruction. And I realized how nicely the 2 would go together. After being trained at the SF School of Massage I started practicing and lots of my private yoga clients became massage clients as well.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
I would absolutely miss it! Although I have no plans on stopping. I find doing massage to be very healing. I love helping people!
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
I do consider myself successful. I've been practicing for over 13 years and have had successful private practices in both San Francisco and Durham. Now I even take the show on the road!
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I think I'm just generally a kind person. And I think that once you meet me you will see that pretty quickly as well. Also I don't descriminate based on age, size, or race.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
I really hope that people feel more relaxed. Grounded. That they got their money's worth. And that they want to come back!
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I really love to dance! I've set up a disco in my bedroom. Along those lines I'm also learning to DJ. I'm also very creative and like to create ***y out of this world costumes.
Why did you become a Masseur?
Honestly it was initially to make money. But then I realized how much I loved the work. I like connecting with people one on one and hopefully building a relationship over time.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
Go for it! Just be sure to go to school first. Know what you're doing.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
I think my 13 years of experience is what makes me different than others. A lot of people come and go in this business. But I think the really talented ones are the ones who stay.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I've got 13 years experience and no plans on stopping anytime soon.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
This year I told myself I I wanted to travel 2 weeks out of every month. After being locked up in my home for 3 years I needed to get out. I'm hoping to meet some cool people and see some cool places.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
Considering that I have several clients that I have kept for over a decade, I think they're pretty satisfied.
