Massage in the sun.

Today’s massage was at the client’s request done outside in the garden. Because of the sun, some oils such as Bergamot would not be on the agenda as they can in some individuals cause photo-sensitivity.


My client particularly enjoyed the birdsong in the garden. For the future, if I know in advance that a client might want the massage outdoors, I could take the massage table outside as while some p;arts of the massage are easier on the ground others require more physical stamina on the part of the therapist. I also need to ensure clients know about the albeit small risk that someone might enter the garden from the rear of the property.

On balance however it is certainly something I would do again if it was what the client desired.
