The Ohio Episode


For this episode I welcomed not one, but two amazing massage therapists from my original home state in the heart of it all - OHIO! Megan Strohhacker, with Pure Tranquility Massage Therapy has over 15 years of experience as a Licensed Massage Therapist. She breaks down the basic requirements to obtain and maintain a license in Ohio. In the second half, I loop in Kathleen Goggin who owns Corporate Oasis Massage. She sheds some light on a darker side of massage in Ohio.



What we talk about:

Part 1 with Megan

  • Megan’s massage origin story

  • Becoming a massage therapist in Ohio

  • Viability of a national standard for massage

  • State of Ohio during the Covid crisis

  • Changes to massage as a result of this crisis

  • Longevity and avoiding burnout


Part 2 with Kathleen…

  • The prevalence of unlicensed, “relaxation” massage practitioners

  • Human trafficking

  • The lack of continuing education requirements in Ohio

  • How she is navigating the shutdown

  • What massage will look like when we can get back to work
