No place for body shaming on my massage table

No place for body shaming on my massage table

A common topic discussed in social media massage groups is that of the body-shaming of clients. Whilst, in theory, it should be an absolute no-no for a therapist to make comments that could be perceived as body-shaming, the reality is that it happens far too often. Body-shaming comments made by therapists may refer to a client’s weight, physical appearance, skin condition, body hair, grooming, age, tattoos, etc. Usually these comments are genuinely innocent or well-intentioned but the reality is that…

How often should you have a massage?

How often should you have a massage?

A recent poster in a massage Facebook group started a discussion about excuses clients use not to rebook after an appointment. A few people gave their ‘best’ examples before the discussion turned a little on the original poster and asked him the questions Why should people need to have an excuse? Why should they be prodded into booking an appointment that may or may not be appropriate for their needs, their time schedule or their budget? As one responder put…

Google Adwords for Massage Therapists

Google Adwords for Massage Therapists

Advertising using Google Adwords can be effective but many massage therapists are nervous as Adwords can become a money pit for the unwary. Because adwords can eat through any advertising budget in no time at all so in my view, it is better to show your ads to too few clients than too many. These are a few tips based on my experience with Adwords. I’m sure other therapists would have different points of view. Make sure that you use…

What your Mobile Massage Therapist wants you to know

Pets, kids, visitors, distractions, tvs can all modify my ideal image of how a home massage should go. Most of the time all is well in the land of the Sydney mobile massage client, they are happy and relaxed at the end of their massage. Most of the time all is well in the…

Massage Envy in Australia

Massage Envy in Australia

The “Starbuckisation” of massage has been extensive in America over recent years through a number of franchised massage chains. Probably the most visible of these is called “Massage Envy” (weird name in my view but I’m not in marketing). Massage Envy has been successful at bringing massage to the masses with the marketing focus being on affordable (“cheap”) massages normally through membership type packages and there are many customers who are very happy with the massages and the services they…

Pressure..pushing down on me

Pressure..pushing down on me

This blog post uses www.truemovement.net/manual-therapies-make-space/ as a starting reference point. It is an excellent article and well worth reading. ====== There are frequent posts by massage therapists in social media groups that go along the lines off I was shocked today. I had a client come in and tell me about a horror story where their last therapist used too much pressure and they were sore the next day after the massage. Why do therapists constantly think that it is…

Coccyx Massage

Coccyx Massage

Coccyx pain is a relatively common problem which can be range from mildly annoying to quite debilitating for some people. Often it is the result of an impact or fall directly onto the coccyx which can have happened a long time previously. The impact caused structural damage or dysfunctional alignment to the coccyx which may not necessarily lead to pain at the time but only manifest years later. There is some dispute whether a normal coccyx should have some ability…

Home massage etiquette

Home massage etiquette

Most therapists who blog about massage will at some stage include an article about massage etiquette. Their post will normally include answers to questions such as what time should I arrive do I have to shower before a session should I shave my legs did I just drool/snort/snore during the massage – should I apologise do I need to tip and so on. Many of the same questions will apply to etiquette for mobile massage although there are probably a…
