About Me

My name is Harminder and I’m the owner of  Infinity Massage Therapy. 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 and 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!).
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.

Starting part-time, the business gradually cultivated a devoted client base. However, the landscape changed in 2020 when I faced redundancy from my full-time job. In the midst of a global pandemic, I made the bold decision to turn Infinity Massage Therapy into a full-time venture. Despite the challenges posed by the uncertain times, we weathered the storm.

Since April 2021, Infinity Massage Therapy has not only survived but thrived. What began as a solo endeavor has transformed into a small team of skilled therapists in Brighton, with a recent expansion into Hove. It’s surreal to reflect on the journey from a single therapist to a small, award-winning brand. I eagerly anticipate the exciting possibilities the next few years hold for both myself and Infinity Massage Therapy.
