As an independent massage therapist and owner of a small business, I am able to:

* Provide a boutique experience with customized services
* Control the pace at which I work
* Set my own hours
* Establish deep trust and rapport with clients–optimizing the
therapeutic benefits of the work we do together

How does this benefit you as a massage therapy client?

Unlike massage therapists that find themselves working for large massage chains, I am able to ensure that I am not overworked or physically exhausted as a result of performing multiple massages in a row.

I allow time for my body to fully recover so that I am able to give each of my clients 100% of my energy and attention.

And because I create the environment and set the pace at which I work, I am able to ensure that my clients never feel rushed or treated like a commodity. The “bottom line” and main concern of my practice is the health and well being of my clients. –I’m not sure the same can be said for Corporate massage chains or the employees that are beholden to them.

If you currently patronize a chain massage establishment, I strongly encourage you to do some research and try to find a local, independent LMT to work with. Not only will you likely receive more focus, energy, and commitment from your practitioner, a much larger percentage of the money you spend on your service will STAY LOCAL and support the local economy.
