When people go looking for a massage session, they expect to spend some time relaxing, meditating and alleviating all the tension in their muscles after a hard day?s work. It should never be a stressful experience and if you offer them such, then chances are they will run away and never come back. For a successful business, you will need to keep your clients coming back for more. Ignorance can never be an excuse and thus you will need to know those mistakes which will create those awkward situations. If you have this knowledge, you will be able to attract more clients and this will develop your business well.
It is normal to find clients falling into a slumber during the massage session and when they wake up, they find a drool on the pillow or sometimes on the table. These are the kind of situations that should never escape your attention. To salvage them from getting embarrassed after that occurrence, you should offer them a tissue paper. This will help them avoid the awkwardness that may come in such a situation. Also, it is always important to clean your massage table, pillows or even sheets after every session with a client. This will ensure that each client enjoys a sanitized, safe and peaceful environment.
Each client is different from the other and some will wonder whether to talk during the session or keep their own feelings. Before a session starts, you can always assure them that it is acceptable to close their eyes and fall into slumber if they feel like. This will keep them at ease knowing that they are not braking any rules of the business. Since many clients will want to use this period to meditate and relax their minds, assuring them that it is fine to sleep will be very much appreciated. For those massage types which may require feedback such as the deep tissue, you should encourage them to talk should they feel uncomfortable.
You may find yourself offering a therapy session after you?ve had your lunch, in such occasions, you should be very careful with your breath since it may keep your clients very uncomfortable. Even if you had a delicious meal, a bad breath will be a serious turn for your clients whom you want to come back next time. Using a few breath mints or even brushing your teeth will do the trick just before you go for a session. Even if they may not mention it, your clients will appreciate such gestures.
