Interview

  • If you and I were on the beach having some wine and great food, what would you tell me about yourself.
    My Journey into Massage Therapy
    "I started my journey into massage therapy almost by accident. I was always drawn to helping people and had a natural talent for understanding how the body works. After a friend suggested I try a massage course, I immediately fell in love with the practice. It combined my passion for healing with a hands-on approach, and I knew I had found my calling."

    Embracing My Identity
    "Being a gay man has been a significant part of my identity, and it hasn't always been easy. Early in my career, I faced challenges and prejudice, but it also strengthened my resolve to create inclusive and safe spaces for everyone, especially within the LGBTQ+ community. My experiences have made me more empathetic and driven to support others on their journeys of self-acceptance and healing."

    Highlights of My Career
    "One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is witnessing the transformation in my clients. I remember a particular client who came to me dealing with severe stress and body tension. Over several sessions, not only did his physical condition improve, but he also started opening up emotionally, finding a sense of peace and self-acceptance.

  • Tell us what you consider to be your greatest life experience.
    One of the best experiences in our lives as massage therapists happened during a wellness retreat we attended. It was a week-long event designed to help people reconnect with their bodies, minds, and spirits through massage therapy, yoga, and meditation.
  • What’s your lifestyle? What makes you who you are?
    Daily Routine
    1. Morning Rituals:

    2. Fitness and Wellness:

    2. Travel as Much as we Can.
  • How do you go that ‘extra mile' in your life?
    Respect Privacy and Boundaries: Always maintain professionalism and respect your client's privacy and personal space.

    Professional Development: Continue to invest in your own education and skills to offer the latest and most effective techniques.

    Create a Serene Atmosphere: Dim the lights, use soft lighting, and play calming music to help clients relax and unwind.
  • What are your hobbies? What do you like to do in your spare time?
    Yoga and Meditation: Many massage therapists appreciate activities that promote relaxation, mindfulness, and physical well-being. Yoga and meditation can complement their profession by helping them stay centered and physically fit.

    Physical Fitness: Engaging in regular exercise or sports is a common hobby for many individuals, including massage therapists. This can include activities like running, swimming, weightlifting, or participating in team sports.

    Artistic Expression: Some massage therapists may have a creative side and enjoy activities like painting, drawing, sculpture, or other forms of artistic expression.

    Cooking or Baking: Preparing and sharing meals can be a relaxing and enjoyable pastime. It allows for creativity and can be a way to unwind after a day of providing massages.

    Nature and Outdoor Activities: Spending time in nature, hiking, camping, or gardening can be a way for massage therapists to recharge and connect with the natural world.

    Music: Playing an instrument, singing, or simply listening to music can be a source of joy and relaxation for many including us.
  • What are your greatest personal traits?
    Deep Relaxation: Four hands working simultaneously can induce a deeper state of relaxation compared to a traditional one-handed massage. The brain may find it harder to keep track of multiple simultaneous stimuli, which can lead to a deeper sense of relaxation.

    Enhanced Muscle Relief: With four hands working on the body, it's possible to cover a larger area and provide more thorough muscle relief. This can be particularly effective for individuals with a lot of tension or tightness.

    Improved Circulation: The increased number of hands can stimulate blood flow more effectively, potentially leading to better circulation. This can be especially beneficial for those with circulatory issues.

    Balanced Energy: Some believe that having two therapists work in synchrony can balance the energy flow in the body. This idea is based on certain Eastern philosophies of energy and holistic health.

    Reduced Mental Overload: With four hands providing sensory input, the mind may find it more challenging to focus on stressors or intrusive thoughts. This can contribute to a more meditative and calming experience.

    Unique Experience: A four-hand massage is a relatively rare and special experience.
  • What makes you stand out from the crowd?
    Tantric Lingam Massage An Intense Climax Technique For Men

    In Tantra, we connect with our partners on a personal level. We also connect with the universal sexual chi or energy in our partner's body as an energetic life force. One way to do this is through the lingam massage. Yes, this is a fancy name, but it is done with more thoughtfulness, respect, care, and desire to bring selfless pleasure to your partner.
  • What kind of diet and fitness regiment do you follow?
    Diet: Our diet is mainly low-carb & high-protein; we recently have been introduced to only eating 100% grass-fed/finished protein and pastured raised eggs.

    Fitness: Our daily fitness routine includes a mixed combination of free weights, yoga, and core training.
  • What is your ‘niche’?
    4 Hand Intentional Sensory Overstimulation. Intentional Sensory Overstimulation is a term that generally refers to deliberately providing an excess of sensory input to a person, often in a controlled and therapeutic context. This can involve stimulating multiple senses, such as touch, sight, sound, and smell, in a way that is intended to create a heightened sensory experience.

    In certain contexts, intentional sensory overstimulation can be used for therapeutic or relaxation purposes. For example, in some forms of sensory therapy or sensory integration therapy, controlled overstimulation may be used to help individuals with sensory processing disorders adapt to and better process sensory input.

    Keep in mind that the term and its specific application can vary depending on the field or practice it is associated with. Always consult a qualified professional or practitioner for accurate information and advice on any specific technique or therapy.
  • How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or you are more of a homebody?
    We travel full-time, we love to see the country in all four seasons.
  • Name 5 things that you can’t live without.
    1. Sonicare Toothbrush
    2. Husband / Boyfriend (Poly)
    3. Friends
    4. Cell Phone
    5. Laptop
  • If you have to pick one thing that everyone else should absolutely know about you, what would it be?
    Minimalism. This is definitely an acquired taste that was born out of necessity, but it grew into an amazing source of time, energy, and happiness — although none of those things are front and center. To me, minimalism is about making room to solve real problems in your life. To find the resilience to carry on with little, because in reality less is truly more.
  • What should others absolutely know about you?
    Where we grew up, we don’t slam doors. We sit straight at the table and put our devices away. We say “hello” and “bye” and “thank you.” We are no Brad Pitt so we can only imagine how much this has — sometimes literally — opened doors for us in life. Manners are a very basic form of respect and, again, one that’s often missing today.
  • What would you like your followers to know about you that is unique and even a bit personal?
    We live in a world where success depends on your brand and all brands must stand for something. Therefore, most people stick with their opinions, but it makes no sense. You’re human. All you do is change. We should applaud people who publicly change their mind, not trash them. From Walt Whitman: “I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large. I contain multitudes.” An open mind is a very sexy thing!
  • What do you enjoy most about yourself?
    We don’t know whether we were both born with it, raised to be, or cultivated it — probably all three — but we refuse to accept anything other than the idea that the day after tomorrow will be better than today. It’s a great source of motivation to work hard and do our best, and it’s made our life a lot more fun in countless ways.
