I don't mind either way - providing they provide professional treatments and have a firm grasp of their anatomy

We recognise that on occasion some clients will have a gender preference, so we try to provide choice by having both male and female practitioners working at our clinic. Whilst it's rare for clients to request a specific gender, it's probably for a very important reason to that client (e.g. trust or abuse-related issues) so it feels important to be able to meet the needs of each client where at all possible.

I always request a male therapist that does deep tissue massage.... I find male therapists have better body mechanics and use body weight is very important when you need therapeutic massage.

That's really interesting to read that as your experience, one of the most powerful / deepest massages I had was from the slightest of therapists - there was nothing of her. But she knew how massage and how to use her body effectively.

Either way. The most important thing is if the Therapist is professional and has the ability to perform the massage treatment.

This is personal preferance. My experience has been patients preferring a stronger touch when treating medical issues and not so much in the spa setting, as there decision to seek me out. I have had other patients say they sought me out because they didn't want the therapist to talk the whole hour about them, as this was what some of their experience was in receiving massages by other therapists. We need to remember about patient care; what are their needs?

no preference at all. Providing the therapist has full insurance and conduct him/herself in a professional manner.

havent a problem in the slightest - as long as they are knowledable and qualified and insured doesnt make a difference

as a male therapist it's irrelevant for me my client's gender. When I go myself for massage I just choose the best therapist available

i dont mind either. i think i wouls feel more comfortable with a female during certain treatments but i would rather have an experienced professional male doing my treatments than a bitchy woman. (not saying all women are bitchy but many a time have i been in a salon and the therapists have all stood aaround talking about a client after she leaves. not good at all).

Some married women prefer only female therapist. Some men will never allow another male to massage them. Be comfortable in the knowlege that as a male therapist there will always be those that are not comfortable with you or if given a choice, they will request a female.

I personally want an excellent massage performed on the knowledge, experience and good work. It is true that for a man, feminine energy will be fine ... and, to a woman, a masculine energy. But the important thing is to give each person individually customized (tailored) massage designed for the specific need to show that person.

Gender should not matter, it's ability to perform the massage to your liking that counts.
