Good morning All,
I have now been running my private practice for some time alongside my Personal Training business and I am a bit puzzled as to why I keep getting requests for "happy endings".
This seems to be a fairly common problems plaguing other Thai Massage practitioners in the area.
Nowhere in my online presence, be it website, directory listings, social media, etc. do I ever imply that I am running a brothel as opposed to a legitimate holistic practice so I am a bit puzzled as to why local men see "Thai Massage" but read "brothel".
Have any of you experienced the same phenomenon and how did you put a stop to it?
Thank you in advance and best wishes,
Cristina, I have never experienced this in my practice. There are probably two reasons. One is that I am male which prevents most of such issues in the first place. The second is that in the US, Thai Massage doesn't have so much of this reputation which is sometimes the case in several parts of Europe. And in Thailand, the brothel connection is definitely existing, but it is pretty easy to separate the legitimate from the 'happy end' type of massage.
You must be living in an area where some precedents have been set to encourage such a way of thinking, i.e some not so legit Thai Massage shops. I have heard this from other practitioners in the UK as well, but it seems to be a local phenomenon in some areas.
