it cheapens our profession. they’re like the “fast food” of massage. i get clients that have been to these chains & they say how bad they are & how they will never go back. but for the price, they will try it once. their lmts are just students or people that are so bad at the profession that they are willing to work for $10/hr. i work in a great spa & work VERY HARD to give a great massage & have mostly repeat clients or referrals. i guess it’s true that you get what you pay for!
