Looking for an Employer Who Doesn't Treat You Like a Number?

Here at Skin to Soul we believe that by supporting our therapists in having healthy work life balances, and a team oriented environment, we create wonderful healing experiences for all of our guests. We feel that by taking care of our therapists, we are taking care of our clients as well. Unlike other franchises we are run by massage therapists, for massage therapists. We pay a livable wage for the Metro-Boston area and do not have blackout dates around the holidays. We value and understand our LMTs, because we are LMTs. Help us bring the Art (and the heart!) back to bodywork!

As a stable and thriving practice, we have therapists who have been with us from 6 months, building a full practice after the 2020 pandemic closure, to 10+ years. We have a team environment where we compete with ourselves and not each other.

Skin to Soul was founded in 2006 by Nicole Russo, LMT, BS. Nicole is a massage therapist with over 12+ years of experience who still practices bodywork and understands the demands it places on your body. Our Hiring Manager, Jen is a LMT with 5+ years of experience.

Requirements For Employment:

  1. A current Massachusetts massage license
  2. Active liability insurance
  3. Be willing to follow all Studio Covid protocol including wearing a mask at all times when on shift.
  4. Be willing to work as a team with other therapists

Our New Leveling System:

At Skin to Soul, we realize there is a very short ceiling to your career at most other bodywork chains and centers in the area and yet a vast difference in skill set, experience level and knowledge. In the past, the only way to advance in your career as a therapist was to leave your place of employment and strike out on your own. We recognize that many therapists may not want the additional stress of running a business and being isolated from a team of others and would rather continue to practice their craft in a supportive environment like Skin to Soul. That’s why, like many salons you may go to, we have created a type of levelling system for our therapists to honor their experience, and continued dedication to their education. 

In all transparency, Skin to Soul was originally created by a massage therapist and structured to run as lean as possible, in order to give all extra to our therapists. Our therapists make more than the majority of other therapists that work for companies or chains, sometimes double or even triple what they might make at another company. We do our best to keep our overhead costs as low as possible so that you may enjoy the lowest prices we can offer, while still paying our staff the pay we feel they deserve.

Our therapists are grouped into different levels of expertise and specialty based on merit. These levels depend on years of  years of working with Skin to Soul, specialty therapies, client retention and client demand. Each therapist has the opportunity to advance to each level. Just because you are a starting level therapist with us, does not mean you dont have years of experience.
