Ethics and the massage therapist


Today is my introduction to my blog with my first post. Yes, I am one of the evil, dishonest people who have posted a picture that isn't me.

I chose to do that because of my new career as a massage therapist and living in a very rural area where everyone knows you and your business. But I am here because I enjoy reading, communicating and laughing at a very adult, kinky level.

I often wonder what goes on in the mind of a client when at the end of the massage I am asked to go on a date. Of course, I don't date my clients, so I politely decline. But, how many people at the end of a doctor's exam or a chiropractic treatment as their doctor for a date?

I have a college degree and then I additionally went to school for a couple of years for massage therapy. I am a professional. What is it that makes me in a class of it's own and all rules are thrown out the window?

I am quite social and do go out from time to time and enjoy a beer with friends. Often I am approached and asked what I do for a living. I chose not to tell anyone because it cause such chaos. "Ah, my neck hurts," "really? do you do nude massage?"

I knew that this type of thing came with the territory when I signed on but it is much much more than I expected. I have recently put a block on my personal phone, not my business phone, due to "personal" callers asking for sexual favors.

You might think I'm uptight, but one indescretion on my part could ruin my career. And that would be sad because I do so love what I do.

I think your right don't do anything to damage your career.

Also you seem to have your head on straight, so follow your heart

Getting involved with the opposit sex can be very disapointing to say the least.

I wish you all the luck in finding the right person. I know it hard.
