From Dale Favier's article in Reader's Digest March 2014. Dale Favier is a massage and health blogger.:
A massage therapist has seen a lot of people and…. This is What Bodies Look Like
Let's start here with what nobody looks like: Nobody looks like the people in magazines or movies. Not even models. Nobody. Lean people have a kind of rawboned, unfinished look about them that is very appealing. But they don't have plump round breasts and plump round behinds. If you have plump round breasts and a plump round behind, you have a plump round belly and plump round thighs as well. That's how it works. (And that's very appealing too.)
Women have cellulite. All of them.
It's dimply and cute. It's not a defect. It's not a health problem.
Men have silly buttocks. Especially if most of your clients are women, you come to male buttocks, and you say, What, this is it? They're kind of scrawny, and the tissue is lumpy because it's unpadded; you have to dial back the pressure, or they'll yelp.
Everybody on a massage table is beautiful. There are really no exceptions to this rule.
At that first long sigh, at that first thought that "I can stop hanging on now, I'm safe," a luminosity, a glow, begins. Within a few minutes, the whole body is radiant with it. It suffuses the room. It suffuses the massage therapist too.
