Visitors to Warrior Massage may note a new addition to the staff, though you would be forgiven for NOT noticing him, as he is the strong, silent type.
Lord Guan Yunchang epitomizes Honor and Loyalty, subdues demon spirits, and protects the righteous. Warrior Massage patrons can rest easy while in the clinic, knowing that Lord Guan watches over them, wielding the legendary Green Dragon Crescent Blade in his right hand (this symbolizes his righteousness; Chinese police officers' depictions of Guan always show the halberd in his right hand... Triad depictions, though no less reverent, show the halberd in Lord Guan's left hand).
As shown in the photo above, he also does a fantastic job of holding up my collection of industry journals, and making the joint look a whole lot classier.
Massage therapists often have a lot of weird stuff in their office, that all too often goes unexplained. Usually, the stuff in the office is about THEM - the therapist - and what makes them feel comfortable, grounded, and happy in their workplace. I wouldn't lie and say the stuff in my office is any different - but I'd love it if that stuff could serve the same purpose for my clients. I want Lord Guan to give you the same comfort and succor he gives me.
