This morning as I watched the news while getting ready to come in to the shop, I noticed a humorous commercial about a husband who had spontaneously booked a couples massage for himself and his wife. The wife looked troubled, and the ad quickly flashed to an ad for the sale of razors.
This is a common concern I hear as I massage, “Oh and by the way I forgot to shave”. As a massage therapist I wanted to speak to this concern. We, as massage therapists don’t care that you didn’t shave. We see bodies of all shapes, sizes, hair levels, and skin types! I promise you we see it all, and a little hair or extra weight is not what catches our attention. What does catch our attention is the tension we feel in the muscle tissue, the forward head posture from hours of computer work, and the inflamed tissue from old and new injuries. We as massage therapists are here to help you regain balance and harmony in your bodies, whatever your initial state when coming to receive the massage. We are not judging, we are here to help!!!
So forget about your hairy legs, lips, or eyebrows. Don’t worry about your extra pounds or troubling eczema. There is no judgement. WE SEE IT ALL. WE APPRECIATE IT ALL. WE ARE HERE TO HELP.
