Massage at The Backrub Store, St. Paul

You went into Therapeutic Bodywork for love and money, which is why you want to practice at The Highland Backrub!

• No forced non-compete clause.

Almost every studio or salon in the nation requires a clause restricting your ability to "compete", The Highland Backrub has, as its mission, the freedom of each practitioner to grow professional relationships to benefit their public practice at the Backrub, as well as for their growing their professional private practice.

• No sales or oppressive managers.

You aren't a child. You are a professional. Colleagues at The Highland Backrub are self-managed—taking charge of most of the operational aspects of the store when they are on duty. This practice helps practitioners to become fully attuned to how businesses operate and how success in this industry is achieved. Colleague-to-colleague relationships are exceptional here because we are all self-motivated and community-centered.

• Be paid well for the work you do!

We're busy so colleagues make an additional $10-$75,000/year working part time (4 to 15 hours/week) to full time, while building their private practice clientele. Enjoy 50% of your net services on every visit. Give us a try! We’d be happy to pay you hourly to find out if we fit your idea of great bodywork delivery.
