Where The Male Massage Therapist Can Learn How To Make A Career In A Female Dominated Profession
Does this story sound familiar?
You are a male massage therapist. You studied hard back at massage therapy school. You passed your massage license or certification exam with flying colors. You are confident about your abilities. Your references are impeccable. You are serious in attitude, and display a professional appearance.
Yet, every time you have applied for a position, you are told politely, “Sorry, we’re not looking for a male massage therapist”. Perhaps you have even started your own practice. You may have taken out a “Yellow Pages” ad, and have had the telephone ring a fair number of times. Once the caller discerns your voice is that of a man, the question quickly changes to, “Do you have any female massage therapists on staff ?”
These situations can be frustrating for the male massage therapist. You can feel the discrimination based solely on the fact you are a male. While no prospective client who declines your services will say it to your face, you know what they are thinking.
If it was a man who declined your services, he’s thinking, “Any guy who wants to massage other men for a living has got to be gay . Ain’t no way I’m getting massaged by a guy.”
Likewise, if it was a woman who declined your services, she’s thinking, “The only man I’d let massage me is my husband. The only way I’d get massaged by a male therapist is if I knew he was gay .”
Face it. Starting a career in massage therapy is tough for anyone. Period. Still more true is the fact that male massage therapists have it twice as tough, even when they do everything right. But there are some male therapists that do succeed with a massage therapy career. And a few that do succeed with worthy financial achievements.

And just for the record, let me be clear: There's no such thing as legitimate " " by a massage therapist. There may be indications for prostate massage for certain bonafide medical conditions, but this procedure is only performed by a specialized physician, and certainly not found on the internet. So, you don't need to ask if any male massage therapists offer it...
