Massage - To Talk Or Not To Talk?
Posted on 27th February 2023
If you’ve met any of us you’ll know we like to talk! Chatting away and getting to know our clients is a great part of the job. It may even be part of what attracted you to the job! However, we’re also pretty good at being quiet, letting our clients relax, and taking the time to just ‘be’. Not everyone wants to chat, and that is absolutely fine.
Sports massage doesn’t mean clients can’t relax!
Although we’re a sports massage company and our usual client base, you would think, are sporty people, not everyone is. We regularly help people with aches, pains, and injuries that weren’t picked up from doing anything overly active!
Some clients love to chill out and relax as they receive a deep tissue treatment from one of our talented sports massage therapists. They may want to recover from a heavy day or week at work being constantly in front of a computer. They may want to take time out of a busy schedule to relax and regroup. Or they may just want some help to get rid of those niggles which have been bothering them for weeks.Although we’re a sports massage company and our usual client base, you would think, are sporty people, not everyone is.

Is it OK to be quiet?
Being quiet during treatment is common, and completely fine! It’s the client’s time, and they choose what they want to do in their appointment.
Fixing injuries or easing discomfort
When we do talk to clients, it may be to communicate what we’re doing so they’re informed and comfortable. We may check which parts they’d like us to focus on, and ask whether the pressure we’re applying is OK for them. We may need to reposition our clients to achieve the best effect or ease any discomfort they have. But this is necessary to give them the best treatment possible and we can leave them in peace aside from that.
So, clients, feel free to be silent and relax and enjoy the process, safe in the knowledge that the therapist is fixing your body at the same time.
Why choose Fire & Earth?
