Very Profitable Massage Clinic
Remarkably low owner-involvement hours!
There are many massage centers in the greater Portland metro area, and if you’re like I was, you might think they’re all pretty much alike. I thought, “Massage—someone rubs and pushes on sore muscles, right?”
Boy, was I wrong! Maybe a lot of massage centers are like that, but this one? No. Definitely, no. I’ll bet there are few, if any, massage centers around here that even approach the level of this one. Now that I understand this operation better, it is clear that it is more like a medical clinic. In fact it offers sophisticated Clinical Massage services (sometimes called orthopedic massage) and Medical Massage treatment in accordance with the prescription that the patient brings from his/her doctor. It bills insurance on injury claims. Auto accident injuries, worker’s comp claims, post-surgical rehabilitation, and even PROFESSIONAL SPORTS PLAYERS (who can go anywhere they choose to obtain treatment for their sports injuries so they can get back to their team quickly)—this group of highly trained professionals handles them all, expertly and with care. Rub and push on sore muscles? This clinic goes so far beyond that ordinary service-set, I’m embarrassed that I ever had that thought. For example, there is “Multi-Radiance Laser Therapy.” This advanced FDA-approved treatment method is indicated for the symptomatic relief of intractable chronic pain as well as post-surgical and post-trauma acute pain. The fact is, this smooth-running and highly profitable operation wouldn’t normally even be on the market, except the owner is now developing another successful business with a family member. There is only so much time available in a day, so the painful decision was made to divest this highly profitable business. Consequently, it is now available for acquisition. And, by the way, it is truly a BUSINESS; it is NOT AN OCCUPATION being mis-labeled as a business as is often the case in business opportunity websites. The owner does not perform massage therapy or sports wellness services. These highly skilled functions are performed by the best in the business nationwide, with specialized training and credentials. The high quality and consistency of this multi-faceted service delivery is due in part to the establishment of strict policies and procedures, just like in a medical clinic. The standards are high, and they are maintained via quality assurance monitoring. So, if you are in the massage therapy industry and would like to see if this business might be a way to expand your reach (and your profits), or if you are an entrepreneur who would like to own an easily-managed business with great cash flow, high return on investment, and solid demographic drivers (not to mention a loyal clientele), please contact me, Principal Broker Gary Richards at Pacific Northwest Business Brokers, for more information. The best way to do this is by using the inquiry form on this website, so I can get an NDA to you immediately.
Inventory: Included in asking price
Employees: 6 LMTs, 4 staff
Furniture, Fixtures, & Equipment (FF&E): Included in asking price
Facilities: The existing lease is not renewable, because the present shopping center owner is changing his business model next year.
Of course, if you operate a massage therapy center that is in the same general market area, this will not be a problem. Just migrate the highly trained staff and the loyal customers to your facility and escalate to the next level.
In fact, it’s not a problem even if you wish to operate the business in its own new location not far from the present address.
The Owner has identified two excellent shopping centers that serve the same market area, each one better than the present location.
Principal Broker Gary Richards will be happy to arrange for you to have a broker who is familiar with the business and the prospective locations represent you to make negotiating the new lease quick and easy.
Competition: There are three competitors in the area, as one would expect in and around Portland (is there any neighborhood without a massage center?) However, there are no competitors that have reached this facility’s “medical-institutional” level.
The typical “massage franchise” business model is built around low prices and high volume. No doubt, these services provide value to some people, but the most discriminating clients with the most difficult situations come to this facility.
Think about it: if you were a professional basketball team trainer, would you send your injured star player (who makes millions of dollars a year) to the best massage and sports wellness center in the Portland metro area, with the most experienced and highly trained professionals, or to an ordinary franchise massage center to save a few dollars?
Hint: the financial success of this company’s business model provides the answer.
Growth & Expansion: The biggest growth and expansion area is Medical Massage (i.e., carrying out a doctor’s prescribed plan.) The facility charges the UCR (Usual and Customary Rates) for the Port-land area and for Massage it could be $186 per hour!
This would mean building more relationships with the market-area medical practices, chiropractors, and also the Urgent Care facilities. They will send more referrals for Medical Massage.
Related practices such as physical therapy rely mainly on doctor referrals and this facility can use the same marketing practice to produce ongoing growth.
Another strong area for more growth is memberships. These make it more affordable for clients to come in regularly.
The facility has initiated a commission program with staff to give them the incentive to sell more of these memberships. This sales plan can be enhanced, which will increase the number of memberships to provide a steady and predictable income each month.
Financing: 30% of purchase price
Support & Training: The Owner will provide two weeks of on-site orientation and support at no charge, followed by three months of on-call phone support (at no charge.)
Additional transition support is negotiable if the buyer wishes.
Reason for Selling: New family business project.
