Massage As A Birthday Present
9:59 am cdt
I had the great opportunity last night to be apart of a wonderful
birthday celebration. To celebrate his wife's birthday, an amazing husband treated his wife to a home cooked meal (he
did the cooking!) and provided his wife with a wonderful 90 minute massage (that was my part). Ladies, this guy had
it down-pat! Mood lighting, great dinner, great atmosphere...he'd done his homework.
I enjoyed being a part of the evening by helping her to relax an feel special, in addition
to helping set the mood for the rest of the evening. It was quite an honor to be apart of this husband's celebration
of his wonderful wife's birthday.

Your Privacy Respected...Celebrity Or Not
11:17 am cdt
One of the interesting things about living in this part on middle Tennessee
is that you see a lot of "celebrities" who've come here to escape the scrutiny of gossip columns and paparazzi.
And as a massage therapist, I've had the great opportunity to work with several of these folks. And this lead
me to think about something.
privacy during a massage session.
matter weather you're a mega rock star or a busy mom with three children...when you have a session with me, you're massage
session is shrouded with ethical and professional privacy. And here are some reasons.
Massage therapists in Tennessee are licensed and regulated by the Tennessee Department of
Health. The same licensing and ethical codes of conduct that are prescribed for doctors and nurses are applied to massage
Consequently, no one is allowed to know
anything about your massage session. I can't even tell my wife the names of my clients because that would be an ethical
and legal violation of privacy.
In addition, my massage
practice is all out-call. That means my clients are inviting me into their homes...their sanctuary...to have a massage. For me, that trust
is quite an honor. I reciprocate that trust with total confidentiality about the massage session. Does every massage
therapist do this? Well, they should.
