Starting A Massage Parlour

I have always wanted to start a massage parlour. I studied massage and natural therapies a few years ago and have either been working for someone else or working on my own with a small room in my house designated for massage. However I am really keen to start an actual massage parlour with a few rooms, a couple of employees and hopefully it would be a busy and successful business. I have always been passionate about massage and natural therapies ever since a teenager and knew it was something I wanted to work in one day. I really enjoy offering a very relaxing and calming massage experience to all my customers although it would be a dream to have my own shop front and do all my own marketing for the business.

I have learnt a number of different massage styles including deep tissue, Swedish, relaxation and Shiatsu. My favourite is Shiatsu and relaxation. Shiatsu is different because it is not an oil massage, the massage receiver can remain fully clothed although it is better if women remove their brassiere just so it does not get in the way of massaging the back. My massage parlour would offer all of these full body massage services. I definitely would not offer adult massage or rub and tug or anything like that. It would all be legitimate and strictly non-sexual massage services primarily targeted at female customers. I have heard that many massage parlours offer full body massage services with a twist like calling them sensual massages or an adult massage but I certainly won’t be providing this.

I would like to call my business something like Massage Serenity or Massage Peace and I would ideally need to find a location with female office workers nearby needing to de-stress after a long day or wanting to pop in for a lunch time relaxation massage. I have been researching massage parlours in the city and some of them are clearly meant for male customers only and I assume they provide adult massage services. However there seems to be a lack of female massage salons where women can go to and feel relaxed and know that they can get a massage in a massage parlour that is female only and the massages are performed by other females. Anyway I hope I can make this dream come true one day. I am working hard and saving at the moment so I have some capital to get the business started and not stress about money for about 6 months. I think it is smart to ensure I have enough money up my sleeve before I dive into starting a business like this.
