Meet Lauren Turner of Lauren’s Massage in South Shore, Norwell

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Turner.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I began my business in 1998. I attended Massage Institute of New England (Mine)
I had wanted to learn Massage when I was younger but veered off. Now I’ve been in Massage business for 19 years. I love what I do. I love helping people heal and take care of themselves. My clientele is very important to me and many have been coming since I opened. I take great pleasure in creating my space that’s soothing to the soul as well. I’ve included a Holistic Aesthetician that has also added great benefits for the clientele. I have two gifted, lovely woman that work part time so we’re open 7 days a week. A call in advance is suggested. No walk ins.

Has it been a smooth road?
Starting your own business can be exhilarating but also fearful. I started in 1994 as an Electrologist with very little money and after 2 years I was concerned that Laser treatments would put me out of business so I continued with that field while I attended Massage school. I ended offering both modalities for 16 years but then decided Massage was my thing. There’s always a slow time of year and every year I panic but it always works out and I was able to grow. After 911 and the crash in 2008, I really thought I would be affected but in reality that was when my clients really needed me.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Lauren’s Massage story. Tell us more about the business.
I have a well established Massage business today in a back of a house/office in Norwell. With a saffron colored sign that sticks out for drive byes to see.

My specialty is a customized massage. I believe in healing techniques along with long flowing but firm strokes. I add some reflexology and cranial sacral. And I’m told it really works for them.

I’m most proud that “I did it”, I’m still in business after seeing many other locations close over the years. That clients keep coming in and back!
I’m not sure what sets me apart. I know I put my heart and soul into nurturing and I’m a good listener. I have such great clients.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I believe Massage will always be apart of peoples lives. Especially now that some insurances cover it. Flex Spending has really been beneficial too. There’s always so many modalities, It’s always evolving.
