Do you have a preference for a male or female therapist when you receive a massage? Most of our clients, for a variety of reasons, tend to choose female therapists. In fact, in 2012, 68% of our clients requested a female therapist, 12% requested a male and 21% had no preference.
Now, with that being said, we’d like to challenge that bias.
There is a very real and strong case for the male massage therapist. First, a male therapist will, more often than not, be able to apply the requisite pressure that many of our clients, both men and woman, demand. Second, just as is the case with our female therapists, our male therapists are 100% professional and are solely concerned with making each client comfortable and addressing their specific needs. Most of our clients, who have taken that leap of faith, have been very glad they did. In fact, it’s interesting to note that, over our 20+ years in business, our two most highly requested therapists have been men.
For those of you who have never considered seeing a male therapist, do yourself a favor. The next time you call to schedule an appointment, we encourage you to change up your routine and request a male. Certainly, it’s important to feel comfortable when receiving a massage, but, once you’re on the table and the massage begins, we can guarantee that all your concerns will drift away, along with your stress, and you will thoroughly enjoy your massage. And, when it’s over, and the receptionist asks how everything was, just think how much more enlightened you’ll feel about having tried, and enjoyed, something new!
