* For now, I am no longer providing unclothed massage sessions. Only clothed chair massages, and clothed table massage sessions.
* Please note - at least for now, I am no longer providing private, unclothed massage sessions for new clients.
Only clothed chair massage, & clothed table & floor massage sessions blending thai, shiatsu, sports with energy based modalities.
While I have met some wonderfully mutually respecting, directly honestly communicative people during my career, I am burnt out by some aspects of dealing with people & providing massages.
Mostly by experiences of dealing with some people who choose to not own their abusively negative projections, their responsibility to communicate directly honestly, mutually respectfully with me about their interpretations, boundaries & preferences before expecting to be understood.
Even though I always state to everyone before all sessions that directly mutually respecting communicating with me about such before expecting me to understand and thereby respect them, is one of my boundaries I require to be respected by all people I give for & relate with in any way, for mutual clarity & comfort.
And some people misinterpret what I am open to giving for paid massages. Sometimes mistakenly assuming & expecting more than I am open to giving in a paid context. Some people even getting upset or vindictive if not receiving more intimately than I'm open to giving in a paid context or 1 time experience.
I prefer to change context & keep relating to a personal, unpaid context based at least in developing an honest lasting friendship if sexually inclusive, for many reasons.
And some people relate, maybe unintentionally, misleadingly or assume erroneously, then feel offended based in their mistaken assumptions, misleading dishonest behaviors & projections.
Unfortunately there are many people who in their attachment to maintaining a certain, often superficial & false social & "professional" reputation - public image of themselves, will abusively passive aggressively & directly lie about themselves and to & about people. Who ghost and metaphorically throw under the bus those of us who prioritize being more respectful of the truth of peoples natural diversity & openly honestly communicating & relating with each other.
Some people even mistakenly assume that if I am appreciative of honestly, openly discussing varied aspects of life & human diversity, or networking & connecting with people through these arts for instance, that my doing so is anything more than a sincere openness to learning about life & discovering if, in what context & how relating is mutually appreciated and desired with each individual.
For me I have no expectations from anyone for anything relational other then mutually respectful straightforward honesty about & respect for each others directly honestly stated boundaries & preferences and our individual liberty.
While I respect the equal rights of everyone to have both similar and different preferences, boundaries and interests in how each individual lives ones life and chooses to be open to relate with people up to mutually directly honestly expressed boundaries, I have my own boundaries & preferences in life & for these arts. Including for what I am and am not open to providing or relating during paid or unpaid massage context.
Because of such experiences with some misguided, dishonest people, I am no longer accepting private clients for paid, unclothed massage sessions.
If you want a massage from me, you are welcome to receive clothed chair massages from me in a public setting. And perhaps clothed table massage sessions from me at my office. *
