A massage is a very personal experience. We allow someone into our personal space and are at full trust that they will honour and protect our personal space just as much as we do. Although, from time to time, and hopefully not too often, we encounter those who either do not have an idea of what personal space is and they feel they have a right to invade or intrude because they have merely received an invitation to enter.
What I found chatting to my guests this week and with people in general, when an invasion of personal space has occurred, we fear speaking up. Again, guilt is a common motivator but it’s also the projection that those who are being invaded feel that the issue is with them. This leads them not to speak up.
Join Ilea Matthews, Rachel Fennimore, Jennifer Ariemma and returning favourite Britni Lesha, Tab Wolod and Michele Musso as we all tell you about our massages to remember.
