Website Mahal Bodywork Studio

Located in the historic Sycamore Building in Fairhaven, Mahal Bodywork Studio is a unique massage therapy studio. We specialize in creating a safe, restful, and rehabilitative experience for our clients.

The space is elegant, with high ceilings and windows with a clean, minimal aesthetic.
There are two beautiful treatment rooms.

We have a loyal, and full clientele built with people seeking rehabilitation from injury and relaxation.

Some of the common conditions we see: anxiety, chronic pain, surgery recovery, and a wide spectrum of mental stress injuries. As a therapist here, it is important to be grounded, wholly present, experienced, and somatically versed. Being trauma informed is a plus.

Some of the modalities that are practiced here are: gentle fascial work, ROM, visceral manipulation, breathwork, Bowen work, sound healing, energy work, pregnancy massage, Thai massage, Lomi Lomi, relaxation, and lymphatic drainage. Therapists who offer a diverse set of styles but are especially attentive to creating a uniquely safe container that they hold for their clients (and themselves).

Therapists are celebrated for the individuals that they are, and personal client connection is very important.

Some other important qualities are: someone who is always working towards mastery of their skills, who remains curious about the body, who is especially attuned to the somatic experience of bodywork, who honors all colors/shapes/sizes/orientations of being human. Is punctual, serious about bodywork and healing.

Ideally, you are specialized beyond basic training, but I’m willing to train the right person.

Shifts are for 4 sessions. I feel that five sessions can be quite a lot for one’s body, but if you strongly feel that you can be grounded and present seeing 5 clients, let’s chat.

Base Pay is $40.00-per massage hour, and can rage up to 120.00 depending on service, plus tips.
We do not offer insurance benefits. But we try to do monthly trades, offer several free CE opportunities, and a yearly company retreat w/ CE credits.

This is a unique employee position, where you have a lot of autonomy and space to create a personal connection with your clients. You are responsible for greeting clients and also for checking them out. We use online scheduling. There is no dedicated front desk staff. You may work all or some of your shift.
Strong practice management skills are a must. This may not be a good fit for most new graduates.

I have immediate need for these shifts:

-Friday PM (approximately)
2 PM-7 PM

-Saturday AM (approximately)
9 AM-2 PM

-Sunday AM
9 AM-2PM

There are regular opportunities to cover other shifts.

I would prefer applicants who are available for more than one shift but I am open to meeting you regardless.

It is important to me that your unique skillset is honored here, and that you can feel centered in the power of your healing work.

As an employer, I am supportive. I am flexible. I deeply understand this work. If you join us, you are joining a team of friends who see you and support the healing journey you are on, as well as friends who deeply understand the magic we create as bodyworkers.

I look forward to working with you!
