About LaVida Massage of Troy, MI
Current studies have found that stress is the largest culprit when it comes to heart disease and heart attacks. Disconnecting from the distractions of everyday life for an hour is a huge payback for your well being. Massage can be one of the best forms to managing stress. The power of touch, time to disconnect and feeling rejuvenated is the great experiences you achieve from massage.
We need to keep healthy because frankly, most of us can’t afford to get sick. Compared to the cost of medical expenses, routine massage is but a small investment for a healthy future.
We opened in January of 2009, directly after the big recession, and the first year and a half was very tough. We did not give up or in, we pushed through it. Today we continue to grow with new therapists, new products and new services. We are always looking to add to our menu to compliment our services and to help our clients achieve their personal goals.
Why are you passionate about your massage business?
"I partnered with my brother for this new adventure into massage ownership. I have always owned and operated my own businesses; massage is a unique business to have. It opens the world for natural, non invasion treatment to relieve pain and stress. Many times this is the last chance for a client to get some relief before surgery. Most of the time it works….helping people get back to their lives is very rewarding. Introducing massage for the first time to clients is always a gratifying experience. They go into their session very concerned and worried, and come out with a smile of their face, because the touch of massage is so powerful."
What makes our LaVida Massage of Troy better than the local competition?
"Our team of therapists and customer service representatives is what makes us different. We have a great team, and they are all very compassionate about their careers here at LaVida Massage of Troy. Our journey is a quest of compassion and understanding.
We do not consider ourselves as a” SPA,” that is not what we represent or strive for. We are a health and wellness center, offering massage therapies and skin care services. These services provide many different benefits, from pain relief to corrective skin care. As more and more people understand the importance of massage we grow and get better every day.
Our regular clientele enjoy and look forward to their massage sessions. They connect with the massage therapist and our customer service representatives at the front desk. It is like we have a special club, and many people are just discovering “LaVida Massage of Troy”. We build relationships with our clients, we know about their travels and their grandchildren, their new jobs; we connect with them, because massage is a very personal service.
This is a very easy and fun place to work, our therapists never do more than six massages in a day. Why is that important? Because that means that they are not wore out, and they are fresh to give the next massage. Our staff gets a fifteen minute break in between sessions, allowing time to get ready and focus on the next client that they will be working with.
My brother and I have a simple philosophy it is a simple triangle. Take care of your employees, the employees will take care of the client and the clients will take care of the business."
