"Mae, the $20 rate is reasonable only if the MT is working on the clock, paid by the hours onsite whether giving massage or waiting for a session to begin.  It's a rip off of the therapist if the $20 is per massage session only. "

"I have had to purchase extra parts on my chair because they wear down easily, but never had one collapse! I would definitely confront the company and either ask for a new chair or your money back. If the client had been injured they could have sued."
