Feel the benefits of massage in Saskatoon location
- Andrea Ledding | December 31, 2017
Marilyn Osecap has opened a massage franchise in Saskatoon that is already building an excellent reputation via word of mouth. Massage Experts can be found on 8th Street behind the Shoppers and Grainfields locations, facing Traxx Footwear.
Osecap began getting into holistic health and healing about seven years ago. AFree two decades as an accountant, she says massage is one of the most beneficial ways to address overall health. Her pathway to physical therapy through touch was a gradual one, obtaining various accreditations in healing areas and doing her practitioners work around her day job at first.
“I started a side business doing energy healing while doing accountant work. I was doing it to help people and telling everyone they should be getting regular massages, not just for relaxation but because they’re so beneficial for your mental and emotional and physical health.” Emotions get stuck in our bodies in cellular form, she notes, and massage helps with processing that for better health all around. So, when the opportunity came for her to make a change in careers, she decided the most beneficial way to positively impact people’s health was to open a massage business. After doing extensive market and entrepreneurship research she made the decision to go with a franchise for the help, guidance, and support to begin her own business.
“I did my research and decided Massage Experts fits best with my beliefs — the people who started the franchise are a family of massage therapists who really truly care about their clients,” she explained, adding it’s not about making piles of money but about providing essential services that improve lives.
The beautifully appointed location, in the middle of Grosvenor Mall on 8th Street in Saskatoon, currently employs five therapists in eight tranquil massage rooms and has been operating for two months. Osecap hopes that once the word really gets out, she will have between twelve and twenty registered massage therapists within the year with their varying shifts of morning, afternoon, and evening.
Other benefits of the Massage Experts franchise beyond massage itself, which will attract customers, is that they also offer Air Miles, and direct billing to insurance companies for those who have coverage.
“Direct billing is a big draw for most people...even with benefits, people don’t like to pay out of pocket and submit the paperwork, but we direct bill, we do that for you,” explained Osecap. Massage Experts not only relax you by the hour, but eliminate as much stress as they can in their daily operations. You can also access membership for special discounted rates, and there is an introductory massage rate of $59 for your first massage, which is a great deal or would make for a great stocking stuffer!
Weekdays the options are currently nine until nine, with weekend options on both Saturday and Sunday until five pm. People can either phone 306-652-5318 for an appointment, email email@example.com, or even simply book online or with apps at www.massageexperts.ca.
