5 AREAS YOU NEED TO GET RIGHT IN YOUR MASSAGE CLINICS
Running a massage clinic, by no means, is an easy task. You must strive to provide a high quality of service consistently while ensuring the safety and comfort of your clients (and your employees).
Things can get even more complicated if you run a franchise of massage clinics. In this article, we’ll take a look at five of the most critical areas that you need to focus on that can have a serious impact on your business success.
1. CLEANING AND SANITATION
Massage therapy involves intimate contact with clients’ bodies and skin. Proper hygiene and cleanliness are, therefore, absolutely indispensable in this industry. This is not just important for your business reputation but also from a compliance perspective. In the US, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have consistently been closing down spas and massage clinics that flout health and safety regulations.
As such, unclean premises, massage tables, linen, or towels can be extremely off-putting for clients. What’s more, these can amplify the spread of harmful microbes like bacteria, viruses, and fungi from one person’s body to the next. No wonder massage clinics with a reputation for high standards of hygiene are greatly sought after, especially since the recent pandemic.
