Where are you based ?
I am based in Chorlton, South Manchester, M21. 20 mins by car from Manchester City centre or 25 mins by tram (to either Stretford or Chorlton tram stops) or bus to Chorlton. I'm also about a 10 min walk from Chorlton centre.
Why does your company mostly cater for men ?
I often get asked this question and there are a couple of reasons. Firstly, being a man, I'm more aware of the male form, how it works (or doesn't) and generally what makes it tick. After noticing how many female salons / beauty parlours line our highstreets already, I wanted to provide something new, for a customer that wasn't already being catered for locally.
Also importantly, using an environment that a man would feel at ease walking into. It's all about being comfortable after all.
I often have female clients make bookings for Reiki sessions.
What is Swedish Massage ?
It is the most widely recognised and commonly used category of massage.
The Swedish massage techniques vary from vigorous to light, using five styles of strokes.
These are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping),
friction (cross fiber or with the fibers) and vibration/shaking.
A Swedish massage can be vigorous and bracing or slow and gentle, depending on the therapist's personal style
and what he is trying to achieve for each client.
Can I get a treatment outside of your working hours ?
Yes it is possible, occasionally I may be able to fit a session in outside of the core hours, so it's always worth asking.
Please bear in mind, for the room to be warm enough, I sometimes need a good two hours notice prior to the agreed booking time.
Does it matter that I've never had a massage before ?
Not at all, I get a lot of customers for whom it's their first time. Whether you want to concentrate just on your neck, shoulders and back, your legs or make the most of a full body massage, I can cater the session specifically for your needs.
What should I wear, do I have to be unclothed ?
If you are coming for a Reiki session then loose comfortable clothing is best. Try to remove any rings, watches and jewellery.
If you're coming for a massage, these are typically carried out where the client is either wearing underwear,
unclothed but covered with a towel across their waist or simply unclothed. Either option is fine.
The male masseur will be fully clothed and offers a professional, non sexual service at all times.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.
