In this conversational guide of approximately 38,000 words (around 150 pages), licensed massage therapist and esthetician Andrea Lipomi exposes secrets and shares priceless advice on performing top-notch, five-star relaxation massage treatments for discriminating clients in a manner accessible to both the hobbyist and the professional. Spanning from her early years as a spa junkie in New York, to becoming a successful massage therapist at one of Las Vegas’s highest-rated resort spas, she divulges, with humor, the good, the not-so-good, and the mortifying stuff that happens in the darkness of the massage room. With guidance based on years of trial-and-error and on-the-job training, topics span from setting up the perfect massage space, to landing the spa job of one’s dreams, to dealing with requests for the dreaded “happy ending.”

Beginner and intermediate massage providers will nurture their self-confidence as they chuckle their way through the wisdom shared by a friendly, licensed massage therapist living her dream in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. Even experienced spa professionals with stories of their own will gain fresh perspectives on hospitality, spa culture, communication, and increasing one’s self-worth while enjoying this text-only addition to the next generation of massage therapy publications.
