TMC Training Academy

Our vision is to have 100+ centres open throughout the country by 2030, providing an industry-leading place to work for approximately 3,000 professional massage therapists.

This requires the training of hundreds of new best-in-class therapists, which is why we developed The Massage Company Training Academy.

The course was created by industry pioneer John Holman, our Director of Massage Training, recognised worldwide as one of the most foremost massage experts with over 30 years of experience.

The course has been carefully curated, ensuring the delivery of world-class treatments, and it’s fully internationally accredited and recognised.

For franchisees, that means they can rely on a steady stream of fully qualified, professional massage therapists who meet The Massage Company’s industry-leading quality standards coming through to meet their business needs.

Our Story

The Massage Company Image

After more than 25 years each in the spa sector, building and selling multimillion-pound businesses and leading some of the industry’s biggest organisations, founders Charlie Thompson and Elliot Walker noticed something exciting.

Massage was delivered in dedicated spas and upmarket hotels, and that left a HUGE opportunity in the market – convenience.

They thought: what if massage was affordable and accessible to everyone?

The Massage Company’s first centre opened in Camberley in 2016 and was immediately successful. Demand quickly outstripped supply, and we knew that our wellness revolution had begun.

Our first franchised centres swiftly replicated our original success. Having created the emerging market sector for accessible and affordable massage in Surrey, we’ve now seen the same rapid growth in every location where a franchisee has opened their centre.

And you can see it – and profit from it – too.

Next Steps

Contact us below to receive a franchise prospectus with further information. Then set up a call with Esther, our franchise recruitment manager, before meeting founder and CEO Elliot Walker and enjoying a complimentary massage to experience the TMC quality for yourself.

The Massage Company Financial Data
The following financial information was provided by The Massage Company to give you more information about the costs associated with a The Massage Company opportunity
Personally, you will need to have access to between £125,000 and £200,000, with the total estimated investment for each Massage Company franchise ranging from £200,000 to £350,000, including an initial franchise fee of £25,000, plus VAT.

The final figure will be largely determined by the costs involved in the acquisition of the property and its fit-out costs.
A number of High Street banks have already seen presentations of The Massage Company and recognising the size and success of the spa and leisure industry have agreed to provide finance to suitable franchisees subject to the bank’s own specific lending criteria. However, experience suggests that they will probably only lend up to 50% of the capital required with the franchisee needing to find the remaining 50% from other sources.

You will be assisted to write your Business Plan which will include sales, profitability and cashflow projections which will be needed to support your application for funding from the banks.

Marketing executive swaps big brand background for a big future of his own

Following years of experience working in executive marketing positions for some of the UK’s biggest brands, when Gavin Hawthorn wanted to do something for himself, he had clear criteria in mind.

Harrow heralds the Fabulous Four!

Excited for the future of Harrow, Ramesh Kerai, Sunil Sharma, Ramesh Pindoria, and Centre Manager Pav Sarma, share the news of the latest franchise with The Massage Company, the brand revolutionising wellness by bringing high-quality massage to the mainstream.

Why The Massage Company’s clients stayed loyal even when the doors were shut

Retaining clients when the Government makes you shut your doors is a challenge - but The Massage Company managed to keep its customers loyal during the pandemic, put its prices up, and emerge even more profitable than before.

Embracing challenges brings post-pandemic profitability for The Massage Company

Franchisees of The Massage Company aren’t just surviving but are positively thriving, emerging from the pandemic fitter, stronger and even more profitable.

Six months of community success at The Massage Company Harrow

Sunil says: “It looked as if it would be quite challenging at first as it was a completely new business for us. But it’s turned out to be rewarding. Providing something essential to the community is the best part, as health and wellbeing should be at the forefront of everyone’s life.

“Our memberships are increasing at a rapid rate and the exceptional quality of therapy we offer is reflected in our numbers. A lot of our success is down to that.”

The community took the business to their heart immediately, and Sunil says that the community impact is one of his favourite aspects of the business so far.

“We’ve had very good feedback from the local community who say this is exactly what they need,” he says. “We’ve helped change the way the immediate area looks aesthetically, thanks to The Massage Company’s stand-out frontage on our treatment centre in Belmont Circle, Harrow.

“People like it, and it’s inspiring other local businesses to improve the look of their premises as well.”

As all three directors and their centre manager Pav Sarma live locally, they have a strong understanding of the location’s demographics – and have been able to tailor the TMC business model according to local needs.

“Because we have such a diverse demographic and it’s such a wonderfully multi-cultural area, we’ve had to adapt some things,” Sunil explains.

“We accommodate people’s needs and preferences for male or female therapists by recruiting accordingly and have a good mix of staff that deliver the highest quality service to all clients.

“We’ve benefited from those adaptations as a business, and I’m sure The Massage Company’s head office is learning from us as well.”

Sunil and his fellow directors have stayed close to operations in the first six months, but their plan is to expand and to more centres using the TMC investor model.

“The idea is for all three of us to be hands-off eventually,” he says. “We want to get the business to a good financial level as soon as possible so our initial input is required now.

“We all share the ambitions to add other centres to our portfolio so, if we see the right ingredients at the end of year one, we’ll make a move and open our second.”

They’re also practising what they preach by being regular consumers of their centre too.

“All the directors have regular massage at the centre. Most of our family members come, too,” says Sunil.

“We see the benefits of regular massage ourselves so we don’t see it so much as a way of promoting our business but a way of seriously improving our own lifestyles.”

With vast experience in other businesses, were the trio tempted to go it alone rather than going down the franchise route?

“A few years ago we considered doing something independently within the health and wellbeing sector, but the franchise model is definitely the way to go for us.

“Thanks to being part of The Massage Company network, we get all the experience of Charlie and Elliot [TMC’s founders] and everything that head office has to offer in terms of what’s proven and has worked in other centres.

“That’s absolutely vital to us.”
