I know that I didn't spend the last 18 months of life to make $15 an hour. Therapists that work for that pay make our profession look like even more of a joke than some people think it is already.
Well, Heather, that just sounds like sour grapes. Your idiocy led you to sign the dotted line at a Diploma Mill that churns out about 100+ massage therapists every 3-6 months, times the 8-15 diploma mill-style schools in this city. Consider yourself lucky to be offered $15/hr.
I too was supposed to be making $15-20/hr as a medical coder, but halfway through, I resigned myself to strive for a position as a patient registration clerk, because I could see what was going on around me in MY diploma-mill.... and I'm happy to have my measely $11.50/hr....

"Massage Envy" is one of the worst ideas to come along in the massage business in a long time. They are overselling franchises and franchisees are now competing for market share with other "Massage Envy's" close by. Plus the reason they offer such a low cost service is that they hire the bottom of the barrel in the massage field. People don't like to be short changed on personal services. You get what you pay for and at "Massage Envy" that means you get a lousy service and are then high pressured to buy a membership. No thanks!
I agree with everything you stated except the comment about bottom of the barrel,,Massage Envy employs beginning LMT's as well as veterans to work in their company and yes it can be hit or miss. You probably got the miss and that's unfortunate..but i am glad that you wont go there for massage therapy because that company overworks and underpays its therapists to the point of burn out. Dont let any of them who tout this company's positives fool you. Therapists beware..find a way to market yourself and work for yourself. you will be much happier and earn better money,,or work for a spa that has a better pay and work ethic guideline for you.
Massage Envy is a soul sucker and a life drainer. If those of you who read this DO go to massage envy for therapy, remember that the therapists there dont make much so tip them well and be understanding to them and they will treat you like a prince/princess.

Oh boo hoo, and whilst you are sitting on your fat ass all day coding and getting lower back and shoulder issues who do you go to for relief? Yes a massage therapist, so maybe you should have a little more respect. You're a data entry gimp,,a chimp and a 3rd grader could do what you do. Earn that 11.50hr and then come spend it on we who help unwind that fat ass off the chair.
