Working at Sha Zen
Are you an experienced Massage Therapist, that is looking for a place that puts as much into their employees as you put into your clients? Sha Zen Massage might be a match for you! At Sha Zen Massage, we encourage the growth and creativity of our therapists. We welcome new ideas and encourage continuous learning. We know that you chose this profession to help people feel good, so we provide you with the materials, resources, and supportive environment you need so you can focus on creating a relaxing and therapeutic experience for our clients.
We are primarily looking for a Massage Therapist, however, we would welcome a dual-licensed MT who could do both Massage and Esthetics. We’re looking for a dedicated therapist that enjoys the small office, no-drama environment. We are looking for someone that is comfortable working independently yet adds value when asked to collaborate with our small group of employees. The ideal therapist would bring their own unique style in creating sessions that meet client needs while upholding the Sha Zen brand and philosophies. We want the type of person that believes in the healing power of massage therapy, is willing to jump in and lend a hand when needed and is ready to grow with us!
