Massage Addiction – Are You at Risk?

Posted on

As a therapeutic massage therapist, I work onerous to earn repeat clients by the use of providing an amazing service at a value that displays worth for cash.

Getting to know a buyer and their likes and dislikes over time makes the therapeutic massage far more simpler. Massaging is a extremely private service so any familiarity constructed over time, helps each the therapeutic massage therapist and the consumer calm down into what’s a really pleasant expertise.

Where there is no such thing as a ‘customary’ fee of frequency for being massaged, most Massage Therapists would counsel one therapeutic massage per 30 days is an ordinary fee of frequency for a repeat buyer. More classes could also be required relying on whether or not an damage or well being concern is being handled.

So what occurs when a buyer begins reserving massages weekly, or twice per week, for no cause apart from they simply ‘like being massaged and massaged by you particularly. In every other career, accelerated frequency of a buyer is a welcome occasion. In the world of therapeutic massage, it might truly trigger concern to the Massage Therapist.

Could this buyer be hooked on therapeutic massage? If they’re, is that this a detrimental factor?

One typically associates addition to what are thought to be detrimental habits – smoking, extreme alcohol consumption, extreme playing, and so forth. Or, habit is commonly related to occasions that give individuals a ‘rush’ of kinds. High affect sports activities, bungee leaping, sky diving, and so forth. But therapeutic massage? The act of being pampered into slumber!

If we break it down, my perception is that our society has change into one the place ‘touching’ others is on the very least, averted – take into consideration the discomfort of standing near others in an elevator, or how one says ‘sorry’ after they by chance contact by somebody on the street (properly more often than not). Consider how we bustle for our personal patch of turf on public transport. How we act within the office is extremely regulated and ‘touching’ of any sort could level towards sexual harassment. I do not disagree with the necessity to shield all in a office towards any type of discrimination.

Human beings are programmed to be social – we search group and we search the corporate of others.

Now take into consideration an individual, who’s both single or in a non affectionate ‘non touching’ relationship. They get up and go to work and in each occasion the place they’ve ‘touched’ somebody albeit by chance, they apologise.

It is definitely doable that some individuals in our society at this time undergo entire days, and even months and by no means get ‘purposely touched’ in a constructive, therapeutic, means by somebody.

Could some be utilizing therapeutic massage as a means of merely being touched? Where does somebody go who yearns being touched in a non sexual, therapeutic, pampering means go?

In a society the place touching is averted, discouraged or legislated towards, one can see how simply some could change into hooked on what in its essence, is a primary human want – being touched.
