How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
Many of my clients are busy city professionals with unlimited working hours and frequent business travels. Some of them told me that massage really helps them with the treatment of work-related anxiety, reduce their body tensions and muscle pains but most importantly it became a small treat that significantly enhances their lifestyle. Safe and healthy addiction in a way.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I’m a single independent gay man, living in one of the greatest cities. I think the massage business is not just a great profession but also a pleasurable hobby. In fact, I do also other things in life, including academic studies and some other things. When I decided to try to be a masseur in 2014, I went to a local massage school for a short introductory course. It was a bit of shock as I hadn’t realised before that this job required not just some bravery but also good knowledge, skills, and physical strength. Later on, I had a proper training as I tend to like formalities and details, they make me feel more confident and secure. These days I work from home, usually on a professional, very wide massage table. I’m registered as a self-employed and take my appointments seriously. I already have a few great regular clients who I will miss if one day I will change my profession or my place of living.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
Professional training is not difficult to get. London has dozens of very good massage schools. They teach you the basics and you can upgrade your education at any time you want. It is important to understand as well as to explain to your client what you are doing and why, because they trust you, they also rely on your professionalism and experience. It is quite often I deal with the situations where I should be aware of potential risks and therefore my education and knowledge of body anatomy play a significant role. Furthermore, I think additional self-studies and genuine interest in massage practice are equally important.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
I will not compare myself with other masseurs. Probably we are all different with our pluses and minuses and it is up to the client ’s taste to find someone with who he will feel comfortable and safe.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
I take my massage appointments seriously so I tend to reflect the experience in order to improve my service, putting myself in my clients’ shoes to understand their needs. I don’t think that full body massage can be performed as something mechanical, there is always much more than that. It should be a true connection between two individuals, two men. ITEC formal course obviously helps to understand how the muscles work but when it comes to technique, it should be adjusted accordingly as it is always very personal. I like the man body in general, also love to be naked and love the sensual touch that provides an even better connection. Massage indeed is something that gives us a good understanding of our ***uality and always connects us better to our body, our mind, and of course our pleasures.
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 friendly, understanding guy, and I genuinely enjoy what I’m doing. I’m trying to be well-organised, very tidy and neat. I love men who treat me with respect and have good manners in communication. I believe that good details can make very pleasant differences and leave very nice memories. In order to have a nice session I like to be ready for it, thus the last minute requests sometimes do not work for me. If I’m online and my profile says I’m available it usually means that I’m ready for an enjoyable massage session.
