I have been asked by HUNDREDS of Professional Massage Therapists in the USA, Canada, Europe and Australia and New Zealand to let Concert Promoters and Touring Band managers know they do not want to work for “$1 per minute”. Many of them say the same thing “this rate is TWO DECADES old!” and “Why should we be backstage and only get paid when someone is on on our table? What about the time when no one is on the table?” and my favorite complaint was: “The postage stamp no longer costs Ten Cents. Gas no longer cost $1 per gallon. Inflation affects everyone. We want to earn PER HOUR. Not per minute. It is insulting!”
I agree with them 100%. It is not their fault that people are too busy to get onto the table for a massage. They do not get paid when there are no clients on the table. They SHOULD be paid per hour. Many top acts hire promoters to sort out massage service backstage. The Artists have no idea that the therapists are being paid so badly. Sometimes the therapists are backstage for 7 hours and only earn $45 because there was only 45 minutes of “active massage”. This is worse than minimum wage. This is called TAKING ADVANTAGE.
Please spread the word that Professional Massage Therapists spend thousands of dollars for their schooling, then about $400 for a good massage table and it is a slap in their face to expect them to stand around for FREE waiting for your crew to find time to get onto the table. They deserve to be paid PER HOUR as everyone’s time is worth something. Not just the artist and management. I am going to bat for these Therapists as I KNOW how hard they work.

Hello! I am Anton.. I’m here to get rid of your pain and tension so you can get some rest and get back to work! I’m a highly skilled massage therapist and Reiki Master, and for the last 10 years I’ve developed a vast amount of experience while working with patients of spinal surgeons, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists and other healthcare professionals. I’m furthering my education by studying Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI), and bring my knowledge of connective tissue anatomy to my therapy sessions. My therapeutic pressure ranges from light-touch Reiki energy healing to therapeutic deep tissue bodywork, and may be customized to suit your needs. I’m also a SAG-eligible actor, attending a two-year acting conservatory here in NYC, and a team therapist for an organization in New Jersey which prepares minor league baseball players for major league level competition. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
Book me: email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and write “Sarah/Denver” in the subject line
My name is Sarah and I have been practicing the art of massage therapy since 2010 after graduating from one of the top massage schools in the country.
I offer a wide variety of modalities, but my passion is in Neuromuscular conditions, injuries and Orthopedic treatment. I hold an Associates in Occupational Studies degree with focus on Medical massage. I have been called a tiny powerhouse by many client’s due to my ability to give strong and effective bodywork.
My background in dance strongly influences my approach to bodywork. I believe you must find your center to in order to move out from it into the world. I genuinely look forward to helping you reach your goals of relaxation and becoming pain free!
