Massage Monday #500 My YouTube Journey to #500 and Secret Revealed

It’s time for Massage Monday and it’s #500! I can’t believe I have been keeping up with the weekly video for 9 1/2 years. It wouldn’t have been possible without your encouraging words and reports. For some time now, I haven’t been able to respond to all the comments, but I do see them. Thank you so much for your support.

This week, I will reveal my journey as a YouTuber and some behind the scene stuff. I blindly started this channel with no strategy or planning. I still don’t. Believe or not, I spend 8-10 hours a week to make this 5 minute video, researching, scripting, shooting and editing usually the day before but often the day of.

I do everything by myself because if I want to hire someone, it requires days or even weeks of planning. Lack of planning has made me work on my video while traveling alone and with my friends <many times>. I am grateful for my generous friends who have been in my video too.

I am nowhere near a definition of a model successful YouTuber. The only thing I got going is the consistency because of your kind words and the naming. If I didn’t call it Massage Monday, I would have quit long time ago but Monday kept coming and as far as I know, it will keep coming. I will try to be more organized and less spontaneous in the future. This lockdown has been a wonderful opportunity to plan ahead and shoot multiple videos. <Did I Do It?> Nope. I haven’t done it.

Let me share the top 4 videos on my channel.

#4 Acupressure Points for Constipation. Lots of people are getting relief from constipation. As I did last week, now I have a version safe for pregnancy. So if you know someone who is suffering from constipation, please share this with them.

#3 Anti-Aging Facelift Massage – How to Get Rid of Face Fat. This is a short version of Tanaka Method aka Zogan Massage. People are getting immediate results and they’re getting compliments from others. That must feel great and I am so happy to hear that.

#2 Thyroid Massage to Look 40 Years Younger? So many people commented on my hypothesis that maybe Ninon looked 40 years younger not from thyroid massage but because she remained single and she had a policy of dating someone for no more than 3 months at a time. If you watch the video, make sure to read the comments. Or go there just to read the comments to see different perspectives.

And #1 How To Massage Sciatica To Reduce Leg Pain. This one has more than a million views. If you know someone with a hip pain or pain shooting down the leg, please share this with them. What they think is sciatica could be pseudo-sciatica caused by trigger points, not necessarily the inflammation of the sciatic nerve. If that’s the case, the pain will go away if you loosen the trigger points.

Thank you again for all the likes and comments and constructive criticisms. And thank you for the suggestions for my channel. I have quite a few for a guided meditation or something for relaxation because of the way I talk. I have never done it and I have no idea what to say for a guided meditation but I’m exploring the idea to bring awareness to different body parts.

So here’s my question. What do you love or appreciate about your eyes? Anything you can think of, please let me know in the comment below what you love or appreciate about your eyes, a.k.a. the window to your soul. You are welcome to include your third eye too.

To ASMR people. Let me know if you have any ASMR specific suggestions.

Lastly, with the uncertainly of the future of the hands-on massage therapy, I have a PayPal link for a donation now. If you’ve found any of my videos helpful and if you feel so inclined, I would really appreciate a donation whether it’s $1 or 1 million dollars.

Oh wait! I have another revelation. I just turned 50 recently. Here, I kept my promise to reveal my age sometime this year. Don’t be surprised if I do more anti-aging stuff in the future.
