What does your business specialize in?

We focus on therapeutic, rehabilitative massage therapy. We offer several different massage modalities including deep tissue, Swedish, lymphatic, cupping, prenatal, hot stone, reflexology, sports, aromatherapy, Reiki, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and more!

What steps do you take to ensure a quality product or service?

We take our time to personalize each and every massage. We automatically build a 15-minute buffer into every appointment in order to give our clients an opportunity to share their goals and needs for the session that day, and not feel too rushed getting on or off the massage table. We are fully licensed by the state (something not every massage establishment in Denton can claim) and work with only the very best licensed massage therapists in the area.

How does your experience serve your customers?

In a fast-paced, high-stress world, it’s so easy to care for everything around you but neglect your own self care. We help our clients get back into their bodies and catch their breath. There’s something really powerful about stopping for an hour to quiet your mind and heart, and give back to yourself when you’re so busy giving to others all the time. We help people recharge so that they can continue to be the superheroes they already are.

What differentiates your business in the marketplace?

Our primary difference is our “no tipping” policy. We see the work that we’re doing here as being therapeutic and healing in nature. You’ve never tipped your physical therapist or chiropractor, so why would you tip your massage therapist? The best tip we could ask for would be for you to tell your friends and family about us!

What is your business management philosophy?

The therapist comes first! We love our clients, but massage is hard work, and the therapists give so much of themselves that I want to make sure they are being taken care of. I believe that if I take good care of our massage therapists, they will in turn take good care of our clients and of our business. I never got into this work to make money. I got into it to heal people. And that’s still true today. Seeing the relief in their faces when they walk through our doors brings me the greatest joy.
