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

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.
