Funny Massage Story #3

Just a short story this time. Received booking from a wife as a surprise for her husband as he had been working hard and was generally fairly stressed. The appointment was scheduled for 8pm on a Sunday night. I arrive and knock at the designated time and hubbie answers the door in a dressing gown. And a very crest fallen look on his face.

Mobile Massage Records

Mobile Massage Records

I’m sure most massage therapists would have “claims to fame” at one stage or another during their massage careers.

Surprise Massage – Part 2

Surprise Massage – Part 2

I recently wrote a post about how I’m not a great lover of turning up to provide a surprise massage to an unsuspecting recipient, www.richardlanemassage.com.au/blog/the-surprise-massage. There is an inherent risk that the person may not be as receptive to receiving a massage as the person booking the massage might have anticipated. However, I will recount a situation where a surpise massage did work. The unsuspecting “victim” of the surprise massage in this case was actually a massage therapist. Their partner…

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.
