What is the dark side of being a massage therapy?

I was recently asked to expose the dark side of massage therapy.

After much thought, I have decided to do exactly that.

I am going out on a limb with this.

But it is only right that you should know the truth.

Where should I begin?

I can’t think of anywhere better than at the beginning.

That’s where the client disrobes everything in preparation for the dark side.

That’s where the client positions themselves upon the massage table in anticipation of the dark side.

And then, the Massage Therapist enters into the dark side.

Darkness so piercing that no sunlight penetrates through.

Darkness so significant that inside radiance fails to extinguish it.

Darkness so surreal that the Massage Therapist must move carefully.

Else in stumbling, they fall to their knees in discomforting pain because of the dark side.

Of Sex And Massage Therapy

I was recently asked how a male can request a female Massage Therapist.

It really isn’t that complicated.

Simply ask.

However, there is a way not to ask which happened to us recently.

The potential client went on to explain that he experienced an unexpected release during his last and first-ever massage.

YELLOW FLAG!

We advised that we could still work with him though it would be myself (a male) rather than my wife (a female) doing the work.

He declined and advised that it was actually okay if he had this experience as he was a sex addict.

RED FLAG!!!

We advised that due to professional boundaries this would not be okay and our only option available would be working with myself.

The appointment was canceled.

Yes, these are tough and uncertain times for everyone and we could use the monies, but not at any cost.

Life Threatening Condition Turned Me Into A Massage Therapist

November 20, 2018.

That’s the day we graduated.

We being my wife and I who are in our mid 50’s prospectively.

Yes, sometimes people find themselves returning to school during their mid age.

For me, it was a matter of finding a way to increase my longevity.

No, are education was not in any form of time travel but rather massage therapy.

Bottom line, my life was at risk due to BP numbers that resembled 245⁄125 regularly.

Being a naturopathic vegan, one would think that such issues with blood pressure would not exist.

Apparently, one would be wrong.

Instead of opting into medicating my condition I chose to shift my career from the very sedentary life of a Digital Marketer into a much more active style as a Massage Therapist.

I just took my BP and today’s AM numbers read 143⁄72.

Yes, I’m aware that they could be lower yet, but given that I know people that have chosen to take meds for this condition who have numbers higher than mine I am confident that I am out of the serious danger zone that I was in previously.

In an upcoming post I will share why the last thing in the world that I would ever become would be a Massage Therapist.

How To Escape Being A Massage Therapist

Actually, it is quite easy.

It starts by becoming delusional.

And that started when I was a kid.

That’s when I strategically avoided such topics as:

1. Anatomy

2. Physiology

3. Pathology

4. Kinesiology

Why avoid?

Because I hated science.

Well, hard sciences like those 4 items listed above.

Which is why my degree is in Psychology and not anything related to hard sciences.

Worked great till I got into my mid 50’s and found myself enrolled in a school to become a Massage Therapist.

Crazy!

After graduation, my wife (also enrolled) and I opened our clinic Graceful Touch in Rapid City, SD.

The strange part here is the fact that I found myself loving hard sciences.

So much so in fact, that had I known early in life what I know today, I’d likely have gone this direction out of the gate.

Breast Massage: Yes or No?

I received a question today that dealt with breast massage.

Would a professionally licensed Massage Therapist massage the breasts?

At first glance, one might think no.

However, as long as it is done professionally and the have the right continuing education credits the answer is actually yes.

As Massage Therapists, it is not something my wife or I choose to do but that does not mean that it should not be done.

There are actually two different related Continuing Education courses for Massage Therapists.

One focuses on understanding breast massage for beginners. The other addresses advanced techniques of breast massage.

For me, it crosses a line that I am unwilling to cross.

However, in doing a Google search I found what looks like a very polished website identifying the availability of such in Seattle WA.

Massage Therapist verse Masseuse (Is There Really Any Difference?)

I looked at the two terms on Google earlier today and found they both spoke of massage as their primary focus.

Outside of the fact that a Massage Therapist is likely licensed and certified will a Masseuse is not, according to the strictest definition there is not really a difference.

However when you consider the connotation of the word things change.

Here’s how:

While the literal definition leads to a common them the connotation of the two terms differs vastly.

A Masseuse may come with “extras.”

A Massage Therapist does not if they are concerned about keeping their license.

We believe that with our high degree of professionalism Graceful Touch massage therapy was able to secure an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau in our first year of business. This is a milestone we are very proud of achieving as a result of the hard work we have put into the entire launch of our business efforts here in Rapid City, SD.
