Today we’d like to introduce you to Meagan Mahoney.
Meagan, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
After receiving my first massage session 7 years ago, I was hooked. I fell in love with it then and there and basically decided that day that it would be my future career. Since then I found more and more reasons of why I love it. These reasons include, seeing the dramatic difference in the emotional state of my clients from before and after their session and in the gradual positive change their bodies when they commit to coming on a regular basis. Also building relationships with my clients is awesome. I have some really loyal clients who have followed me to my new location in Tiverton, which for most is a much longer drive than my old location in Pawtucket. I opened this new location in June and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It’s in a beautiful, scenic, quiet area of Rhode Island with water in view and a yoga studio located next door. I’m excited about our near future plans of adding a steam room and a sauna to the space. There are lots more plans in the making, stay tuned!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There have been so many learning opportunities, which some people could call obstacles. Mosaic is the first business I’ve ever owned and I went to school for art before massage school, not business, so I had a lot to learn including all the red tape of opening a small business in Rhode Island. In the first year there were some financial stresses but I’m happy to say I did not need to take out a business loan, I just stayed within my means and worked really hard. Overall it’s been a pretty beautiful journey.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
I am a licensed massage therapist and the owner of Mosaic. I specialize in deep tissue, Swedish and Thai massage but I blend them all together to get an all-encompassing therapeutic massage. At this point, there are two other talented massage therapist working at Mosaic, whose massage styles are similar to mine. Our massages are well rounded: effective and focused but completely relaxing and pampering at the same time. We don’t skimp on the complimentary services; every massage includes heating pads, hot towels, aromatherapy etc. Everything about Mosaic was designed with the intention of being stress relieving including the decor and aesthetics. I put a lot of love into the remodeling of the studio.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up I was a pretty shy/introverted kid but happy and had a quiet confidence. I knew what I was good at and what I wasn’t. I wanted to be an artist (and I still do) I definitely never thought of going into massage therapy until I was 21. I’m still an introvert but really enjoy talking to my clients’ one on one and having meaningful conversations. This field is actually perfect for my personality because I like being around people but I don’t necessarily want to be making conversation the whole time I’m with people. During a massage, my clients and I talk if they want to, but if they don’t want to then we listen to the soft music and enjoy the sound of peace. Also I like being active and moving, I think I would go crazy if I had an office job.
