Masseur / Masseuse

A Masseur or Masseuse in a health club performs massage and other techniques to provide physical and mental relaxation to guests. As a Masseur or Masseuse you'll apply alcohol, oils or other rubbing compounds to a guest's skin, then knead and rub the body with carefully regulated pressure to penetrate and relax areas of tension or spasm in the musculature (known as 'knots'). You may also apply a range of other massage techniques, ranging from hot stone methods through acupressure and acupuncture to reflexology and many more.

Massage therapy is currently an unregulated discipline. However, to work as a Masseur or Masseuse you should undertake an in-depth training course of at least six months full-time or 12 months part-time. You should have a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology, whole body massage, health and safety and business, professional and ethical standards. A professional and caring attitude towards your clients is a very important attribute.
