DaddyBear™ believes that safety begins with a properly trained and experienced therapist. Safety is a two-way street as it relates to any bodywork. The therapist must be educated about not only anatomy and physiology, but also on contraindications to massage as well as best practices to address the pathologies of the client. In order to protect the therapist, he must also be familiar with proper body mechanics that will prevent injury to his own body, especially when pertaining to the repetition involved with performing multiple massages.
DaddyBear™ takes great pride in delivering a Zen atmosphere for your session. The energy of the space in which the treatment is delivered requires preparation on the part of the client and the therapist. Coming into a session with positive energy enhances the therapeutic results. The comfort of the massage table, the temperature of the air, the fragrance or aromatherapy present, the sounds of nature or music must all complement each other to create a Zen space. DaddyBear™ makes every effort to prepare that perfect space for each client.
DaddyBear™ understands that quality involves many different components of the treatment being performed. Although massage technique is of utmost importance, it also concerns having ample time for the entire session. Allowing enough time before, during, and after the treatment is important so that neither the therapist nor the client feels rushed during the session. Allowing time for important verbal communication to appropriately discuss and assess the needs before the hands-on work begins, plays a major part in the quality of the overall treatment. The therapist’s ability to listen to the client as well as read the client’s body as it responds to the treatment requires the skills of an experienced professional. In addition, the height of the massage table has a significant impact on the therapist’s ability to control the amount of pressure needed to deliver the perfect massage. Surprisingly, having the table low enough is more important than having it higher. The therapist should be delivering his work by using his entire body, not just a few muscles.
The DaddyBear™ experience comes packaged in the details that is born in the belief that a positive customer experience and professionalism is key to a successful business. From your first knowledge of DaddyBear Bodywork Company™, to the very last exchange of communication, you can expect to find your experience to excel beyond the standard, something rarely found in the market of massage for men. Throughout the spectrum of a client’s interactions with DaddyBear™, every client should expect nothing short of the best service. Whether it be the marketing methods and materials, the website, the scheduling application, the reminders and communications leading to the session, the personal interaction during the session, the financial transactions, or the aftercare correspondence, DaddyBear™ promises to deliver the very best.
