Touchy, Feely, Squeezy: Musings of a Masseuse is not about happy endings. It is a humorous, heart-warming memoir from a British masseuse of over two decades, who shares her passion for the field, her unique globe-trotting adventures, and all the laughter that comes with it.
Loaded with hysterical tales and candid stories, Touchy, Feely, Squeezy: Musings of a Masseuse includes outrageous chapters like "Will Work for Meatballs", "Hookers and Madams" and "The Penis Monologues". But the hilarity is contrasted with moving chapters like "Massaging Mammaries for the Cure", "Masseuse to the Troops" and "Daddy's Feet"-all with a backdrop of massage therapy and a colorful clientele.
With the British eccentricity of Bridget Jones's Diary and the wanderlust of Eat, Pray, Love, Mandy Urena-who has visited 59 countries-takes you deep into the underworld of the massage profession and behind the scenes.
This book will educate and entertain as it takes you on a cultural trip around the world-on a massage table. Get ready to laugh, cry and schedule your next massage.

About the Author
Mandy Urena was born in Coventry, England where Lady Godiva famously rode through the streets naked on horseback. Fortunately, she cannot also make those claims herself. She went to an all-girls boarding school which cultivated her rebellious nature and after graduating, all she wanted to do was see the world and travel to exotic, far-away lands. At age 18 she had ants in her pants and a completely crap B-movie called Not Quite Jerusalem, sparked her interest to go and work on a kibbutz in Israel just to taste a different culture. But from there, she never looked back and never went home. Instead, she took trains, planes, rickety old buses and hitch-hiked through 59 countries. On her travels, she picked up a husband - a G.I. in the Air Force from New York - who was stationed in Tokyo. Together they hopped from duty station to duty station, living in Japan, Germany, New Jersey, Spain, and Guam. This year they live in New Mexico with their beloved Bernese mountain dog, Cheyenne, but due to the transitory nature of the Air Force, who knows where they will be next year?
Mandy has been a massage therapist for 22 years and started writing about her life of massage in Guam when there was nothing good on TV and it was too hot to go to the beach. Her books are a collection of humorous tales of her family’s nomadic life traipsing around the world with her trusted massage table in tow, stopping for plenty of fun and frivolity along the way.
TOUCHY, FEELY, SQUEEZY: Musings of a Masseuse is her debut memoir and she is also the co-author of the upcoming canine memoir, In the Dog House, which she wrote with Cheyenne. Look for her next book set in Japan entitled Kimpatsu: Musings of a Blonde in Tokyo.
