My name is Harminder and if you decide to visit me which I’m hoping you will then I shall be your massage therapist. I thought I’d use this section to write a little bit about myself and my journey in order for you to have a feel of who I am how Infinity Massage Therapy came into existence.
I’ve put a lot of time and effort into deciding what would be the right kind of business to create. Asking myself big questions such as: what do I enjoy? How would it be able to help others? After considering all of these factors, I eventually decided on a massage business as I’m a people person and engage well with those from all walks of life. Friends and family have said in the past that my massages were great, despite not having any formal training. I put it down to the fact that, from the ages of 5 to 16, I used to massage my dad regularly as in Indian culture this is common practice. My Auntie went as far as to once say that I had healing hands (if that is not worthy of a 5-star rating, I don’t know what is!).
The driving force for my passion for massage was to help people with a number of ailments such as anxiety, stress, soft tissue injuries and also those who suffer from debilitating conditions such as fibromyalgia.
Once I had decided that this was what I wanted to pursue, I looked into getting a massage qualification and eventually chose the YMCA located in Brighton. They provided a level three course which cost £1800 over a three month period, part-time. This was perfect as it allowed me to still work full time whilst studying. The next few months were challenging as it was hard finding the ever elusive work/life balance. However, focused and invested into the journey of reaching my goal, I persevered and thankfully my hard work paid off.
I passed the course! Now, it was time to put what I had learned to practical use. I found myself a part time massage position and over the year I improved my craft until I felt I was ready to start the process of creating my own business. In September 2019, I did exactly that and created Infinity Massage Therapy, situated in a fantastic location in the heart of Brighton.
The business is currently part time but in a few short months, I’ve created a brand from scratch. This consisted of sourcing a location, creating a website, professional photoshoot, flyers, partnering with a marketing platform and working with local bloggers to help spread the word. This has all helped to create a loyal customer base which is growing from strength to strength.
I’m excited to see how the business develops and I look forward to welcoming you to my salon.
