You know you’re a massage therapist when….

  • Everyone wants a massage when you go to a barbie
  • Finding towels to mop up floods and leaks is no problem
  • Having bad breathe is your worst nightmare
  • Needing to protect your hands gets you out of doing gardening or manual labour
  • People will highlight their life story in 60 minutes
  • Wearing jewellery is a thing of the past
  • When your dog sits on your lap and demands a shoulder massage
  • Whenever someone finds out what you do for a living they will point out all their aches and pains
  • You are constantly checking out people’s posture
  • You ask for massage dvds for birthday presents
  • You can’t give someone a hug without palpating their muscles
  • You can’t open packages and parcels because you have no finger nails
  • You can’t relax when you are having a massage because you are too much in your mind, assessing what the therapist is doing and why
  • You car has smudges on the window because no matter how well you wash your hands and arms, there’s always a little residual oil
  • You consider that people snoring (or farting) is a compliment
  • You constantly smell fragrant
