Robert: Why are you twisting your back like that?
Staci: I’m in pain. My back and shoulders really hurt. I think it’s from sitting at this computer all the time.
Robert: What you need is a good massage. It can get rid of the knots in your muscles and get you some pain relief.
Staci: I don’t know. I don’t like the idea of getting naked in front of a stranger.
Robert: If you’re skittish about that, remember that you’ll be covered with a sheet, except for the part that he or she is working on. It’s not a big deal.
Staci: But what if they’re too rough with me? It might make things worse.
Robert: An experienced massage therapist will ask you the amount of pressure you want and you can speak up if you don’t like what he or she is doing.
Staci: Do you think a massage could really help me?
Robert: Definitely. I recommend my massage therapist. She’s licensed and very good.
Staci: She doesn’t use smelly oils or play hokey music during the massage, does she?
Robert: No, she doesn’t. She’s very professional, without being too clinical, if you know what I mean. Call her!
Staci: I’ll think about it – ouch!
Robert: Call her right now. You don’t have a minute to lose!
