Assault and Massage – What to Do

Assault and Massage – What to Do

Recently there seem to have been an increase in number of assaults reported on massage clients by their “therapist”. Whether this is the result of an actual increase in assaults or reporting of assaults that would previously have not been reported is unknown and to some extent a moot point anyway as even one sexual assault is one too many. The vast majority of these assaults are by male massage therapists on female clients. Often when these types of assaults…

Why Female Clients Prefer Female Massage Therapists

Why Female Clients Prefer Female Massage Therapists

Had a conversation recently with a client who had recommended me to a colleague. Her colleague though had only ever had massages from females therapists and was not prepared to even consider a massage from a male, despite my clients recommendations. My client struggled to understand it and just put it down to the fact that she was concerned about the potential vulnerability being a female in a state of undress alone with a male. And given that there have…

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.

Mobile Massage Records

I’m sure most massage therapists would have “claims to fame” at one stage or another during their massage careers. The following is a list of my mobile massage “records”and “claims to fame” although I suspect some of them would have been bettered by other therapists. Most locations visited to see same client – 6 Most generations massaged within one session – 3 Largest age gap between clients massaged in the same week – 94 (100 yr old and 6 yr…

Is Your Bra Giving You A Headache?

Is Your Bra Giving You A Headache?

One of the most common conditions that we see as massage therapists is tension in the neck and shoulders caused by poor posture. The shoulders are rounded forward which may cause the head to be further forward than ideal. The muscles of the upper back and neck are forced to work hard to compensate and headaches or stiff neck may result. There are any number of reasons why this may occur but a common cause may be an ill fitting…

Massage – My Pet Dislikes

Massage – My Pet Dislikes

Not that we are biased but receiving massage is wonderful ….. or should be wonderful. However occasionally there are times when the massage therapist is not tuned in to the desires and needs of the massage recipient. Sometimes an hour on the table can seem last an eternity. Fortunately these times are the exception and not the rule. This article lists a few of the things that we don’t particularly enjoy when receiving a massage. 1. When an hour is…

Benefits of Sports Massage

Benefits of Sports Massage

There are many wild and woolly claims made about the mechanisms whereby massage is good for sports performance. Massage improves circulation, massage flushes lactic acid, massage opens pores and enables nutrients and waste products to pass through, massage can break down scar tissue, massage lengthens muscles. These are all claims that can be found to be made about the benefits of sports massage. It’s fair to say that over the years, I’ve probably made similar claims and used such claims…

Frequently asked questions mobile massage therapists get asked

Frequently asked questions mobile massage therapists get asked

As a mobile massage therapist in Sydney there are a few “standard” or questions that I am frequently asked by clients. Some of these are relevant for clinic based therapists whereas as some are mobile therapist specific. Don’t your hands hurt? No generally not, for a couple of reasons. Firstly as a therapist good body mechanics are crucial if you want to have longevity in your career so you use other massage “tools” (such as forearms, knuckles, etc) so that…

The Benefits of Butt Massage

The Benefits of Butt Massage

A regular posting on massage facebook groups goes along the lines of I had a new client today. After the session she commented that no-one had ever massaged my butt/glutes before. Doesn’t everyone include glute massage as part of their normal routine? The comments typically follow along the lines of Well I always include the glutes or Yes, I hear that all the time or similar such comments. At which point someone will chime in with But that’s crazy…everyone therapist…
