Apply to be a Massage Angel

Why did you want to join Massage Angels?

My background was in tourism and business management, however; when I was in my early 20’s my job at the time didn’t give me a purpose in life. I knew I didn’t want a desk job and thought, why not turn my passion for massage into a profession? I subsequently studied and acquired ITEC diplomas in anatomy, clinical sports and remedial massage, soft and deep tissue, as well as chair massage. Massage Angels offered the flexibility I was looking for and is such a great company to work for.

What is your role within Massage Angels?

I’m proud to be an integral part of the team working at Westfield London as well as being part of the Massage Angels In-Office team.

How long have you been with Massage Angels?

I joined the company in August 2013, so it’s been over 10 years and counting!

What do you like the most about working with Massage Angels?

The flexibility the role provides, and the freedom this gives me. The team I work with is amazing and has a real feeling of camaraderie. My teammates are not just work colleagues, but now also great friends.

What is your typical day like working at Massage Angels?

I used to love my morning shifts; starting the day at 10am and finishing at 3:30pm so I still had plenty of time in my day. Now I’m a mum, I love to spend my mornings with my son, so nowadays, I mainly work afternoon shifts at Westfield London.

What is the most enjoyable part of your day?

Can’t deny that the most enjoyable part of the day is waking up being thankful for the family I love. That said, I genuinely enjoy going into work. It’s fun to work in a team; there’s never a dull moment and no two days are the same.

What is the best compliment you have ever been given by a client?

When a client says: “your hands are a gift, you really are an Angel” and I can see how much they benefited from their treatment. Or when I’m told: “I can feel you know what you are doing, and I feel it comes from your heart!” This melts me because it’s true: I’ve always been driven by my passion and intention.

Please can you sum up your job with Massage Angels in one sentence.

It’s fun and rewarding and I feel blessed to work with such a fantastic team and company.
