While you wash your hands your client can get comfortable,” my teacher said.
Later this summer I will work as a masseur. This afternoon I got my first lesson.
“Be careful with rashes, warts and scars,” my teacher said. And he added: “Be aware that clients may hope for more than a standard massage.”
“Yes,” I said.
“The client can grab your leg,” my teacher explained to me. “Never get angry. Just say: ‘I’m here to give you a massage, not the other way around.’”
Sometimes I believe I’m a natural for this kind of work.
