Massage Envy™ vs. Us?

In pursuit of profits for investors, more and more services, even very personal ones, like massage therapy, are becoming franchises.  A massage from a franchise operation that is focused primarily on profit for the investors who own it may be a different experience than receiving your massage from a business owned by the actual massage therapists that work on you.  Here are some contrasts to keep in mind:

Massage Envy™ Franchises  – Saint Cloud Massage Envy™ Franchise

St Cloud Massage . com
AcuPolarity Massage & Wellness Center

Due to room prep, scheduling & payment, your actual massage time is only 50 minutes.

Franchises overwhelming owned by investors who rarely are massage therapists themselves.

Owners may not live and spend as much of their money in our St. Cloud area community.

A much higher % of what you pay for your massage goes to the franchise than to the massage therapist giving the massage.

Primarily rely on less experienced massage therapists as the lower pay makes it difficult to attract and retain practitioners with experience.

With less experienced practitioners and the push to standardize how things are done, standard massage routines are more the norm.

Policies of how things are done are more formal and fixed. A good deal of what the franchise does, if you have a service issue, is dictated by the policies in place for all of the Massage Envy™ operations around the country.
