Relax, release and unwind. This is what you want to accomplish for your customers when running a massage salon. The atmosphere must be calm and relaxing when they enter your shop and take place on the massage table.

All the effort that you took to make a person call your business is gone when you’re not picking up the phone in time. What a waste of your marketing dollars!
