re true position on issues, you are absolutly right, I didn't like the painfull process involved but am all the better/stronger for it.

I've 14 yrs experience in this job and I either know what I'm talking about or I shouldn't be doing/discussing this job at all.

Hi Jeff!

 

I own and operate my own massage business, At Your Door Massage.  As you can see, it's an outcall massage business  ;)  I've been a therapist now for eight years.

 

As I'm in the clients home, and unless I'm having a massage party or something, I don't perform many 'spa-like' treatments.  Hot stone is about as close as I get, and that's pretty rare.  I perform mostly Swedish, with many variations of medical and orthopedic style massage, depending on what the clients body kneads  ;)

 

Pleasure to meet you as well!

 

Kris
