Answers to some of the more commonly asked questions. If you can’t find what you’re looking for then please get in touch directly.
What's included in a full body massage?
A full body Swedish / Deep Tissue massage is a head to toe treatment including the whole body (except the genitals and a few other sensitive areas). Other body parts can also be excluded at your request. There is time before your treatment to discuss this. In shorter appointments I will often omit areas such as the face in order to focus on more important areas like the back. Again, I’m happy to take your direction on this to create a massage that’s most appropriate for your needs.
What should I wear for the massage?
Most guys prefer to be naked, covered with a towel and for me this is the easiest way to work. Alternatively some men prefer to keep underwear on (with or without a towel to cover). Others prefer to be completely naked. I leave this decision completely up to you.
What do you wear for the massage?
I normally wear a white polo shirt and navy shorts.
What do I need to bring with me?
Some cash to pay with and that’s it! Everything else is provided.
Do you accept credit cards or Paypal?
While I appreciate the convenience of using electronic payments, I have chosen to go cash only. This helps to keep my rates as low as possible by avoiding fees charged by payment companies. There are cashpoints at both Stockwell and Clapham North tube stations and at Sainsbury’s Local (on Clapham Rd, opposite Grantham Rd), 1 minute walk away from my location.
Payments by direct bank transfer are also possible by prior arrangement. Funds need to reach my account before your appointment can begin. Please discuss this with me at the time of booking.
What type of oil do you use?
I use a 100% pure and natural fractionated coconut oil. It’s perhaps the lightest massage oil available and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy when left on the skin. It’s fragrance free (with virtually no natural odour), colourless and is easily washed out of clothing. Its consistency is very similar to the skin’s own oil with the same ph level and will not clog pores. In fact its natural antibacterial and antioxidant properties can help with problems such as acne as well as other skin irritations. Fractionated coconut oil contains vitamins A, B and E that help nourish the skin.
What hours do you work?
My hours are flexible but I’m normally available from 9am every day and take my last appointment at 8:30pm. On Saturdays I like to finish a little earlier and try to wrap things up by 6:30 or 7pm, depending on what else I have on. I will, on occasions, see people a little outside of these hours if necessary.
What's your availability like?
This can vary greatly from day to day. Generally speaking, evenings and weekends are my busiest times and tend to book up more quickly than weekday daytimes.
How far in advance do I need to book?
This is a difficult question to answer. I have some clients who book a month in advance in order to reserve their preferred slot. Others message on the day with less than 30 minutes notice and I’m still able to see them. Obviously the later you leave it, the less chance you have of catching me, so generally a couple of days notice is best. If you require a specific slot and that’s the only time you have free that day or week, then it’s best to give me as much notice as possible. If you’re flexible on time and can fit around my other bookings then I can often see you on the same day.
How many clients do you see per day?
Unlike most spas or therapy centres where a masseur will see 6 – 8 clients per day, I limit myself to a maximum of 4, and more commonly will see 2 or 3. This allows me to have plenty of energy for everyone.
Do you massage women as well as men?
Yes. Although my business is aimed at men, I’m happy to see women as well. Many of my male clients recommend me to their female friends.
