What goods or services do you provide? I offer a variety massage therapy treatments including prenatal, deep tissue, sports, Swedish, hot stone, myofacial, shiatsu, trigger point and lymphatic drainage therapy.
What’s new or exciting at your place? I work in conjunction with an acupuncturist and together we offer a combined treatment tailored to your specific needs. We offer a combined treatment of 45 minutes of massage and 45 minutes of acupuncture for $90.
What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? I see each client as an individual, and I gather all my knowledge to assess what that person needs and how to approach their treatment.
What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? My customers can expect a thorough evaluation of their concerns and a tailored treatment plan of how to address their issues. I believe that pain in the body is something that can be addressed through holistic methods, and I use my knowledge to help to accomplish a pain-free life for my customers.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience. I have owned and operated my private practice for the last four years and have been a massage therapist for the last seven years, during which I have gained knowledge from my clients on how to best approach their treatment and accomplish their needs. I studied at the world-renowned Boulder College of Massage Therapy where I completed more than 1,200 hours of classes.
What is the most remarkable thing that has happened at your business since you opened? I love seeing people walk out of my office pain free and looking lighter and taller then when they walked in. I help people to get back to their active lifestyles and leave behind the pain that they carry in with them.
