Everything you wanted to know about male grooming but were to shy to ask
Male grooming can sound a little scary to those of you not in the know. It covers a plethora of treatments for men looking to manage their body hair. You will also hear terms such as 'manscaping' , 'waxing' , 'laser hair removal', 'body trimming'.
For some men this can feel like an intimidating world, unlike with women- discussions around hair removal are not common pub topics!
We want to demystify this and tell you everything you want to know but are too embarrassed to ask!
Our resident male therapist Jimmy Bodur has been at the clinic right from the start. Trained by one of the best in the business, Jimmy has, over the years increased his skillset and knowledge. He offers a range of hair removal options to suit all kinds of needs. Being experienced with treatments like these are important for TWO MAJOR REASONS, which many men are concerned about when considering male grooming.
- ? PAIN - An experienced practitioner like Jimmy will provide you with pain free treatments. Experience means repetition and repetition makes you better and better every time you treat someone. As with all skills in life, the more you practice them the better you get-it’s as simple as that!
- ? EMBARRASSMENT - Male grooming is a specialist field. Not every therapist can do it well (in fact, most can’t!). As much as anything, this is down to understanding the male anatomy. It might sound silly but as a practitioner, when you are 100% comfortable with how to treat in a dignified manner, you have an air of confidence and calm that rubs off on your client. Many therapists spend the bulk of their training and their practise treating women - that’s a fact. Practitioners inexperienced in treating men are more likely to increase your feeling of discomfort and awkwardness by deflecting their own lack of confidence on you, let alone increasing the pain of the treatment itself.
