Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
My first client was a good friend of mine's client from Palm Springs. I really back then had no idea what I was doing technically but somehow I had a natural ability with my hands from the very beginning. The client knew it was my first massage and was very surprised at how much he enjoyed it. After that I decided to go to school and become a certified massage therapist.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
Being a masseur can be addictive because of the flexibility in lifestyle. I would definitely miss it and it seems very hard to try to leave.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
I have had many years as a successful masseur, I just do it on the side now and pursue another career that is taking off.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I would love my clients to know that I am very easy going, happy, positive, warm, and friendly. I am very accepting of everyone, as long as you have great hygien!
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
I would love for my clients to feel like I had exceeded their expectations. The feedback I usually get is that it's the best or one of the best massages they have ever had!
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Sing, workout, go to the beach, travel, surf, act, drive, musicals, hike, enjoy nature, meditate
Why did you become a Masseur?
I knew from my the first massage I did that I had a natural gift and I wanted to keep exploring it.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
I would advise any masseur to get training. Either learn from trading with other masseurs or actually go to school and learn everything you can. It is always better if you know what you are doing because you will enjoy what your doing more!
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
training, intuition, my experience working at chiropractor offices, private massage places and on athletes.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
7 years, I think I will always do it. My clients won't let me quit!
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I travel at least a few times a year, and more often I go to the desert or San Diego to visit with family.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
I think training is really important. It doesn't have to be from a school but at least from a really amazing massage therapist that can teach you their skills.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
When my clients leave I want them to feel like they just had the best massage ever!
