"Give me something I can Say "Yes" to"
Avi Davies has been an RMT since 2008 and currently works with Align Massage Therapy in Ottawa, Canada. He has a strong foundation in Thai Massage and integrates this technique into his treatments. Before he became a Registered Massage Therapist, he was only providing Thai Massage and he found it challenging to maintain a steady business. In over 10 years in the profession he has worked in various environments from a spa, to medical, holistic and clinical. These experiences helped him to understand the type of environment he can provide his most effective treatments with clients and leave everything else such as marketing and laundry at the door. Since he doesn’t have to spend time or stress on these extras, he enjoys a shorter work day as a massage therapist which means he can enjoy more time with his wife and son and also prepare for the future.
Enjoy this conversation with Avi Davies!
