A Chat with Appalachian Bodywork
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our goal is to improve the quality of life of our clients. We listen to your needs and work together to set goals for your treatment. After each session, we look to educate our clients as to how they can improve themselves in between sessions.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The power of massage is amazing. What it can do for you and the life you want to live is profound. I want people to understand that they can feel better in their body. Helping others get to that place is a process I find rewarding.
What do you love most about your job?
First is the instant gratification of a client finishing a session and the look of relief and relaxation on their face. Second is the process of creating change within the body. Investigating the body and looking for the cause of dysfunction. Working to change the body and finally reach the goal.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
It usually [starts with], “Mike, without you I wouldn’t be able to …,” and then they insert activities they love and don’t want to give up. It could be working out, gardening, my job, mountain biking; but it doesn’t matter what it is. My goal is to help you live the life that you want.
