The danger of being a male massage therapist...

Postby Temprano26 » Thu Aug 22, 2013 2:03 am

I have been spending this whole year going to school for a career in massage therapy. Ideally I will be graduating in December before Christmas. We have a large class of students putting our hands on each other daily and on weekends, we put our hands on other clients. I wake up at 5:15 every morning to catch an early train that connects to another station to take another train and I wouldn't keep up that routine if it was not worth it in the end.
If we keep struggling then we lose. That is why I don't stay in bed even if I really want to. It is not just for me, it is for my classmates and everyone that believes I can do this.

The only fear I have is if a woman should falsely accuse me of sexual harassment even if I do nothing wrong. Why? Because maybe it gives her a feeling of power that she could get a man fired from his job. Some people really are conniving and cruel.

There was an attractive women on my table and in the hour that I had my hands on her body, she appeared to be totally comfortable. I may have found her fairly attractive but I guess my hands didn't give her that vibe. I also have classmates that have allowed me to be familiar with their bodies. One of them is really cute and I have had my hands on her but maybe I just savor that human connection. It seems guys just want to put their hands on a woman's body with all the wrong intentions and they don't realize the importance of human touch. I just have healthier relationships with women and want to keep that.

You need to figure out if what you are doing is worth the risk, and if it is, put the fear out of your mind. It is like thinking "What if I slip over in the shower?" or "What if I get hit by a car?". Those are just possibilities you have to live with. Worrying will not help. Like any animals, females know when you are afraid of them and the consequences are always negative, so try not to worry.

I think the biggest danger of being a male massage therapist would be having to touch guys'.

Yeuch.

As an old broken down cage fighter and athlete, I often require massages. Guy or girl I could care less, as long as it is done right. I need to feel like I can fight 10 men after it's over with. :D

You could record each session just in case a false accuser made an accusation. Otherwise, I say any involvement with AWs is too risky. Are there any decent opportunities to practice massage therapy abroad?

If you are a good professional, do not be afraid. I have a massage center with many workers. I've never had any problems like that. You must exercise your profession well and be kind to your patients. That is all.
