Confessions of a Masseuse

Freda, a therapist at a well-known U.S. destination spa, reveals a few of her own pressure points.

“People today just can’t disengage—they even put their cell phone under the face cradle. The world is not going to fall apart in one hour!”

“If your therapist says she needs to leave the room to get a product, she’s probably going to the bathroom. I once told a client I spilled oil on myself and went outside to throw up.”

“I’ve seen famous actresses come out of the steam room with long, black rivers of mascara running down their faces. I wish I could take a picture and get rich!”

“Yes, some men expose themselves to us, but I’ve never had anyone come right out and ask for a ‘happy ending.’ They might just ask us to ‘massage a little higher’ up their leg.”
