Would you get a massage from a male masseur? My experience at Spa Satori

What is your initial response to the question?

Mine was one of a non descript nature. I plain and simply wouldn’t be bothered. But I am aware that it might be something that would put you off if you only had the option of a male masseur. After posting on my stories the other day, I realised that some would not consider it. The reasons were varied; to rough/not delicate enough, personal reasons and some discussed reasons relating to body confidence or feeling judged.

So I’ve decided to write a little post on my experience after Spa Satori invited me along to try out their 90 minute massage at the Manchester and I had a male masseur.

Last week, after a very stressful week of deadlines and sleepless nights Spa Satori contacted me and asked if I wanted to review their spa. I opted for Andreas as the woman who I spoke to recommended him after I described what type of massage I prefer. I didn’t think twice that he was a he!

Spa Satori is located in the Northern quarter in Manchester. Tranquil vibes hit you from the moment you walk in, with salt lamps and aromatherapy oils to test. A quick registration form later and I was sat with a cup of herbal tea in hand, and a heated pad around my shoulders. If I am honest, I needed those 10 minutes before the treatment. I had just come straight  from a Manchester Mamas event and was feeling a little rushed, so appreciated that little moment before the treatment.

Andreas was calming, patient and took his time to understand my requirements from the massage and where my problem areas were. He asked about pressure, any injuries/conditions and maintained a level of professionalism second to none.

His technique of deep tissue massage interspersed with relaxing massage was perfect.

So if you are in the Manchester area, I would highly recommend Spa Satori. I have already booked in for my next one!

Whilst I was there I got a patch test for LVL lashes as I have the straightest lashes, so if I decide to get them done I might film a little vlog for them as I am intrigued to see how they turn out!
