Hello everyone. I am a Massage Therapist from Virginia Beach looking to relocate to Nashville.Where do you go for your massages? How much do you pay? Do you go to a spa, chiropractor or just a regular massage business? Is there a lack of interest or opportunities to get a quality massage? Is Nashville a health conscious city?

most massages are done in a day spa environment around here. there are some great day spas in the green hills area. also, if you're talking about deep tissue, you might want to consider a community near a large company like the Nissan and Bridgestone plants in Smyrna, TN. i know nissan insurance covers massage in some cases.

Some insurance is paying for massage according to a sign at our chiropractor's office.

Is Nashville a health conscious city? Depends on how you define "health conscious". Mainstream medicine, yes. Alternative and complimentary or a mix of mainstream and alt/comp, notsomuch.

My wife is a licensed massage therapist here in Nashville, and worked in a day spa, a massage business and then a med spa before finally settling in a brand new medical/chiropractic/therapeutic clinic. In most places, the going rate for an hour-long massage is around $70, with the therapist getting 50-70% as commission. I would do research carefully before moving down here, as the job market can be sparse at times, and benefits are few and far between, as most places hire therapists as contract workers. Also, sometimes getting a license transferred can be a bit of a hassle.

I would call Nashville a semi-healthconscious city, there are a lot of options for healthcare around here, but a lot of people don't really use them. Alternative medicine has a few footholds around here, but they can be hard to find.

I could keep rambling on a bit, but it's late and I'm tired. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
