Massage and Cupping

Massage and Cupping

There has been a lot of chatter amongst massage therapists over the past week regarding the appearance of cupping marks on Michael Phelps during the Olympics. Cupping, for those who are not familiar with the technique is a form of alternative therapy where suction is locally applied on the skin using a vacuum generated within a cup. Check out the wiki page on cupping here The supporters of cupping have been quick to jump up and down at the potential…

Sydney Clinic Massage

Sydney Clinic Massage

Whilst I only offer mobile massage in Sydney, I know for some people that having a massage at home is just not an option. For example, there may not be enough room, privacy may be an issue, there may not be parking available for me or you may not just be comfortable having a stranger in your home. I occasionally get calls from people who are not aware that I’m only available for home or Sydney hotel massage and there…

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

Funny Massage Story#1

I’ve been a mobile therapist for quite a while and as a mobile therapist going into people’s homes things don’t necessarily go smoothly all the time. 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…
