Last night was the first massage I did since graduating from school and the first I’ve gotten paid for. Since I’ve decided that I do not want to work at Massage Envy or a spa, I’m attempting to start my own mobile massage business.
The massage itself went well for the most part. I massaged a friend who is a runner and former coworker. She seemed pretty happy with the massage.
The tricky part was lugging my table ans supplies to her home. I have an Oakworks Nova and that thing is heavy! I believe its about 37 pounds…..a lot to take up and downstairs. In addition to my table, I had my sheets, blanket, table fleece and holster & oil in a rolling duffle bag. I have to find a better carrying case for my supplies. I also found out last night that once I put my table in my trunk, there really isn’t room for anything else.
Overall it was a good first run of what I hope to be many more. I got a chance to really see what goes into doing mobile massage and I got paid for it :)
One thing I will certainly look into is getting a true portable table. I need to take a ride to see an Oakworks Wellspring and an Earthlite table….anything to lighten the load.
