    Dodgy enquiries for massage

    Its definitely the entitled male attitude. I had more than a handful when I started out by myself but since I established a while now it's rare. When it has occurred I circulated the persons numbers to every therapist in my area with cctv pic, I not sure where I stand legally with that...

    Dodgy enquiries for massage

    80% of my massage clients are male, and have zero issues with them at all. I have experience of perverts by phone, text and in person. So the phone stuff is quite easy to deal with. I just do not engage with them on their level, if they ask for extra, yes I can offer hot stones, infrared...

    Facial bowls?

    Hav a look online at Ellisons. You can join as a student. They sell mitts, bowls and everything you need. For home use maybe not now but when your further into your training invest in a copper bowl. It will hold the temperature of the water keeping it hot, for your facial clients.

    SumUp/iZettle pros and cons

    I use Izettle, I have no experience with any other card reader. I like Izettle, it takes a percentage per transaction (for every £100 I take I receive £97.70) but the more you accept by cc or debit on it the amount they take reduces. It takes 48 hours for me to receive the money in my bank...

    Back wax

    Yes the backpack and sweating straight after a wax and then maybe sun ontop of that. I.d ask for a picture of his back and the spots, wondering if it's the small red bumps some get straight after a wax that usually go down within 24 hours and maybe they didn't go down, or he's got sweat in his...

    High frequency

    You will definitely need the training to get insured. It will also teach you both Direct and In Direc methods of application, which they can't do both at home by themselves. Yes they can do 1, but they don't actually really know all the anatomy behind the treatment so people give themselves a...

    Facial massage with Indian head massage

    If it's a seated massage, I would go fo Indian head massage. You can do a full treatment or an express treatment. Offering a few express quick treatments are a good way of attracting clients who wouldn't normally book but as it's quick and cheaper they will try it.

    Aromatherapy and Swedish are my best sellers. I get more men for aromatherapy than females. Men are pampering themselves right now I finding, they are spending money. Females aren't booking as much as male clients are. Not sure if it's COVID related as before I get 50/50 male and females for...
