Meet Julie Black of Julie Black Massage in Allied Gardens

Today we’d like to introduce you to Julie Black.

Julie, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I came to San Diego from Yucaipa, CA to do my studies in for massage therapy. I graduated in 2008 and thats when my career as a massage therapist took off. I have worked at some high end spas and also did in home treatments. The most fulfilling part of my career is when my friend asked me to come work with her company. Little did I know that would change my career from then on. Caryn helped my build my clientele and my business. We now have a CBD spa in Pacific Beach that we opened about 3 months ago. I’m so grateful for the opportunitys that have been given to me.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
There are definite ups and downs in this business, just like any other. Working 3 jobs to stay afloat, not knowing what the next paycheck will be. With the CBD spa it was very challenging in different ways. Making sure we had all the proper paperwork, hiring employees (which was new to me) and finding and spot that was a great fit. Owning a business is never easy, but it is very fulfilling.

Please tell us about Julie Black Massage.
I do massage therapy. Specializing In swedish, deep tissue, trigger point and sports. I’m able to help people release stress and muscle tension. My clients are my friends and family. I’m happy that I’m able to say this about my clients, because in the high end spas it’s not like that. I take my time with my clients and really try to understand them and their goals.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start over, I would’ve taken Caryns offer sooner than I did. It was difficult to think that I had to market on my own and bring in my own clients.
