A Chat with Tara Banks, LMT
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
A lot of people who have never had a massage before are afraid to receive a massage because they believe that the only way to “get in there” is for the therapist to dig their elbow into the problem area. I incorporate longer relaxation strokes to warm the muscles up.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Life can be stressful. I believe that massage therapy, if done on a regular basis, can help change our lives dramatically.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the smiles on people’s faces when they are finished with the massage. Helping people is my passion, and this is just the right outlet.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I had a client tell me once that he and his wife just purchased a $3,000 mattress, and that he was going home and throwing it away because my massage helped him so much.
