Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
Yes, it's been a little over 12 years now and the client is still a regular of mine. It was that day that I realized that sensual massage isn't just all about pleasure, as many people think, but also about a emotional connection with the person. The client was recently widowed and was missing emotional support, and the feeling of being cared for through touch. It was then and there that I realized the power I had to make people feel good about themselves and for me to feel good also in that process.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
I would miss being a masseur. I do not like turning down appointments, I get a lot out of connecting with others and helping them feel good. I travel to 13 different cities on a regular basis and also have a very strong clientele in Denver. I have formed many long lasting friendships and a lot of clients who still seek me in Denver and also those travel cities.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
I do consider myself a successful masseur. I feel through providing reasonable rates I am accessible to all income levels. I have been able to be a full time masseur for all 12 years of this career because I welcome all races, ages and body sizes of clients. I try to make every client feel special and want to come back to me again and again.
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 actually a very shy and private person. I come out of my shell during massage though because I like to share my personality and my caring for all people.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I am an avid runner and tennis player. I also like to read and write (fiction/short stories).
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
When someone leaves my studio I hope they tell me how good they felt about the massage and also how welcome they felt during the session. I take pride in my work and strive for everyone to have a positive experience.
Why did you become a Masseur?
I had a friend of mine whose best friend did sensual massage. I had no idea that sensual massage was even offered. My friend asked me if I wanted to try a session, I did and from there on I knew I wanted to be trained and become a masseur.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
I feel I am very personable and respect all types of people. I want to make sure I reply to all messages in a timely manner. I am also very professional in my responses and want people to know massage is my business and I want to succeed. I am also highly skilled and educated. I don't want to charge outrageous rates so I only have to do 1 appointment a day. I would rather charge reasonable rates and do 5-7 appointments a day so more people are able to experience it.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I travel about every 10-12 days. I only stay away about 3 nights per trip so I am still available for my large clientele in Denver. I love traveling and providing my services to all corners of the country.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I have been a masseur for almost 12 years (Jan 2019). I do not plan on retiring anytime soon.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
Training is necessary in the beginning BUT as you get experience with clients that's when you make your style your own and modify it to fit your clients needs. All clients are different and the major complaint I hear from them are masseurs who are cookie cutter masseurs (ones who lack any distinguishing characteristics- do things directly by the book). I feel I have been VERY successful for 12 years so far because I am different and I meet my clients needs.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
I want clients to leave feeling special and feeling like they weren't just lying on the table waiting to pay at the end. The end result should be satisfaction from a great experience!
