I love nothing better than when a client comes back to earth from their massage and feeds back lovely things to me.
Here are a couple of recent ones that stick in my mind. I’ve broken them down by type of treatment just to give a sense of how differently (or not!) they affect people.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE (on a futon - 90mins or 2 hours)
“I feel like I’ve been taken apart, massaged, fixed and put back together again.”
“It’s like nothing else I’ve known... I feel like a new person.”
“I didn’t realise how much tension I was holding... I’m going to be nicer to my body now”
“It’s like having yoga done to you. Wayyy better than having to do it myself!”
“Everybody should have this”
“Can I live here?”
REGULAR MASSAGE (usually a combo of Swedish deep tissue and a range of other techniques, on a massage couch - 1hr or 90mins)
“That is undeniably the best massage I’ve ever had.”
“You combine the science and the art perfectly”
“It’s lucky I don’t snore” (They do. Quite loudly. But that’s one of my favourite compliments!)
“Everybody needs a Janine”
“I can’t move. I don’t want to move.”
REFLEXOLOGY (In a reclining chair, 1hr)
“I think I nodded off”
“That is like nothing else. My body has been crying out for that”
“I felt tingles in my neck like all the tension was fading”
“I can’t remember the last time I felt that relaxed” (I hear this A LOT)
When I hear this sort of feedback - and all the thanks that follows - it reminds me how lucky I am to be doing a job that gets this sort of response every day.
More importantly, I receive these reactions as lessons. They teach me how to listen to my body, pace myself, take a nap when I need to, book regular treatments for myself and make time for fun and even just doing nothing!
If you want to add to this list of lovely words (and you’re an existing client!), please send me your experiences and I’ll add them. If you haven’t visited me for a treatment before, email [email protected] to book in and see what you think for yourself.
