Ever since I was young, I have wanted to change the world, and I believe that, as a massage therapist, you can do that with each person. You affect their lives, their families' lives, and even the popular culture around them. I believe in wellness, and massage brings it all together. As a massage therapist, you get that one-on-one time with a client and make them feel so special. You just can't beat that!
I really love people so a lot of it is the relationship aspect for me. When I have someone that comes in who hasn't slept through the night in six weeks and your massage helped them sleep, you cannot put a price tag on that. It resonates in your soul when you know what you are called to do. I know I have found my purpose on this planet, and that's an amazing feeling.
We are a family, and I believe my manager and franchisee are 100% behind us.
I have been working at Massage Envy for a year and a half and have been a massage therapist for 11 years. When Massage Envy opened in my area, I knew I wanted to be part of something bigger than myself. I've had a private practice, and it pales in comparison to what Massage Envy has to offer. We are a family, and I believe my manager and franchisee are 100% behind us. They want to make sure our needs are met and we aren't burning out. They are committed to helping us deliver the best massage we can with every member and guest. And they believe in bringing healing touch services to their community.
With private practice, I believed it was going to be wonderful and flexible, but it didn't turn out that way. Besides actually doing the massage sessions, I had to spend dozens of hours a week on marketing, laundry, scheduling, etc. At Massage Envy, I have structure and boundaries that support me as a therapist. The best part is everything is done for me, so I get to fully concentrate on giving my clients the best massages possible. I don't have to worry about doing laundry, paying taxes, or paying rent. Massage Envy does all of it for me, and I love it.
