Hello everyone! Tasha here. We've made several changes in our business life lately that has had many of you asking a lot of questions! I think it may be helpful to discuss some of it here to ease the curiosity.
First of all, we want to thank those of you who have been interested enough in how we're doing for your caring spirit! We have many clients, family, friends, and employees who are so loving and supportive of us and we really appreciate it.
A little background about Paul and I, we both have been massage therapists since 2010/2011 and met through our careers in massage. After we got married we started a business in 2016 out of our home and called it Paul and Tasha Massage. For various reasons (lack of good retirement options as a massage therapist couple, lack of quality options for employment in the massage industry, a general excitement for entrepreneurial pursuits and business opportunities, etc.) we started working to start a massage clinic from scratch. I know, a little crazy!
Together we opened our clinic, Body Balance Massage and Float in 2019 in American Fork. Our intention and goal from the start was to create a place for other massage therapist to be able to thrive in their career. Ultimately, we want for it to be a business that runs on it's own, not to be 'self-employed' as massage therapists forever. Over the last couple of years we have worked many hours doing massage, reception, management, maintenance, trainings, meetings, late nights, early mornings, and much more to keep working towards that vision.
That brings us to September 2022, when we felt like it was time to transition out of the clinic to see how it does on it's own, and back to our private practice, Paul and Tasha Massage. Next month in 2023, I will be officially separated from the clinic and solely working out of our new single office in Pleasant Grove. In January, Paul will be working the majority of his week at our office and just a couple of shifts at our clinic. This new office is just us, back to our original business but with everything we have learned and the many ways we have grown personally and in our massage skills along the way.
Moving forward our goals are to start our family, retire, travel, and have more businesses!
We are both passionate and interested in ALL topics relating to health and wellness. We continue to research and learn about health and massage in order to most effectively help those we work with. We enjoy travel, food and nutrition, entrepreneurship, and our cat Wasabi.
Until next time, may you have the highest quality of life possible!
