Cannabis application to Massage Industry

It occurred to me a while ago that the massage therapy may take a great advantage with some type of application by newly growing cannabis enthusiasm.   Only thing is the complicated legal procedure to get thru the government.Pretty soon somebody will develop a type of oil that contains the THC, or whatever that is for the substance of marijuana to relax human mind.  I remember someone mentioned before about Hemp herbs extract being used for muscle relaxation.  I really don't know yet what they…See More

"All that is good, except for the strengthening exercises you recommend.  The muscles are over worked to start with.  Not good to make them work more.  In addition, protein supplements really help if you do a lot of deep work.…"

Therapist's syndrome

Recently I read an article about MT's physical injury issue, written by Whitney Lowe of Academy of Clinic Massage.  It struck me with an idea of why MT's do not stay in this profession long enough.I always encourage each therapist to take a rest between services and wear the wrist support.   But that doesn't seem to be enough.   I can understand they can only earn high tips from customers when the customers are satisfied and it takes rigorous amount of hand muscles work to achieve it.   I am…See More

I have been thinking about this for a while.   I have a store at San Diego downtown area with 4 masseuse now, who have great experience and skills.   They are all hardworking and needs occasional vacation.   So I am willing to pay their trip expense wherever they prefer for 6 days trip.   Then it occurred to everyone that it might be a good idea to visit other States if feasible.  

So if you are business owner like me and willing to exchange masseuse between your State and California,…

What will be a fair charge for massage service?

What I found out at that time, their rate for the massage service is extremely higher than my spa rate.  The level of massage skill is not as great as our masseurs at…
