– is this really a ‘thing’? Marisa Dimitriadis delves into an intangible dynamic that has a knock-on effect on your customers y first question to you before we continue this subject is – are you fully aware of, and in tune with, the status of the ‘energy’ your therapists are transferring to your clients? If your answer is yes, how do you know? I will share this a little later in the article, but first let’s find out about energy transference. The universe and everything in it is comprised of atoms, which are in part made up of energy. Therefore, we shouldn’t be surprised to learn that the kind of energy we transmit and encounter shapes our lives on multiple levels. Energy transference is what happens when a therapist touches a client, whether during a massage or skin treatment, or during a scalp massage at the wash basin. Every time we touch a client, our energy transfers to them, as does their energy to us.
Have you ever had a massage and felt that the therapist had ‘angel hands’ or ‘heavenly hands’? Have you ever had a pedicure and felt energised and happy after the treatment? Have you ever had a hair wash and scalp massage at the hair salon where you got up feeling like you were floating and totally calm and content? What about a time you had a massage where you felt the opposite and were perhaps irritated or anxious after the massage? Or a pedicure where you couldn’t wait till the treatment was over? Well, those feelings you have (whether positive or negative) represent the energy transference we are talking about. It is real and every single person feels it.
