Massage Room Rental
After you've become licensed and built a clientele, it's time to go into business for yourself. As a massage therapist, this isn't always an easy leap. Whether you've been working for someone else as an employee or renting a massage room in a salon or spa, it's not the same as owning your own business.
You have to start looking for office space that will work for your type of practice and you have to make sure you get the right amount of space. In addition, you'll likely need to hire a few employees to help run the business. It's important to consider whether you'll want to rent out additional rooms to other massage therapists, as well.
Why Most Massage Therapists Rent Booth Space
Renting a booth or a room at a salon or spa is the easiest way to gain some freedom over your massage business. You still get to serve your specific clientele, but you also gain the ability to take walk-in appointments. If you haven't built a very large clientele yet, this could be the best way to get started in massage therapy.
Most masseuses never own their own massage business because the start-up costs are rather high. You have to buy or rent a place to run your business, hire new employees, outfit the business with massage tables and other supplies and you have to market to draw in new business. It can add up in a hurry.
Massage room rental prices seem very low compared to how much you'll spend every month trying to keep your own business up and running. However, renting a space at a salon or spa isn't the same. You don't gain the same freedom and you won't get to keep as much of the money as you make.
While renting a massage booth may be a step up from working as an employee, it's not the same as running your own massage therapy business. If you really want to be independent and gain control over your finances, taking the leap into ownership is the best way.
