Massage therapists are trained to recognize the importance of the human body, but many also recognize the importance of the environment.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that massage therapy can be one of the most environmentally friendly professions out there.

Massage therapy places importance on natural and holistic elements. Instead of using chemicals, massage therapists use natural healing through touch and stretching as well as leveraging the energy of the body. Massage therapy classes at WellSpring, such as Swedish Massage, Reflexology, Hot Stone, Joint & Stretch among many others, focus on these natural healing techniques and hands-on practice. 


Just because massage is an ancient practice and natural doesn’t mean it isn’t up-to-date! Massage is used as a remedy for a wide variety of ailments from seasonal allergies to pregnancy pain, providing a greener, more environmentally considerate alternative.

Now that more consumers are searching for eco-friendly products and services, this can also mean more profit for your massage therapy business. According to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), “One of the great things about taking eco-friendly initiatives is you don’t have to make sweeping changes. You can make decisions based on your budget and do what’s within your power without feeling like you’re failing if you can’t do everything.”
