Full Body Massage Sydney

Full Body Massage Sydney

A phrase that is frequently used within the massage industry by therapists and clients in Sydney and elsewhere is a “full body massage”.  And, in my experience, it is not uncommon for someone to call and specifically request such a full body massage Sydney. Despite the widespread use of the phrase there is a degree of confusion about what a full body massage actually consists of.   What I would consider to be a full body massage Sydney may very not…

Massage Etiquette Australia

Massage Etiquette Australia

A frequent discussion post on massage Facebook groups revolves around what to wear for a massage, draping and whether adjusting underwear is appropriate. And often there are large cultural differences.  This may lead to massage recipients feeling uncomfortable when partaking in massage in a different country.  Or even if they were to try a different modality in their own country.  This post discusses massage etiquette in Australia. An expression that is commonly used by therapists is that you should “undress…

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 on Female Massage Therapy

Why Female Clients Prefer Female on Female Massage Therapy

  Had conversation recently with a client who had recommended me to a colleague.

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. Turns out his wife had put the kids to bed early and told him to go…

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. 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…

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…

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…
