All About Massage and Wellness

Scott and Trish Korb started the private massage therapy practice of Scott Korb in 1991. Over the course of Scott’s career, he became a well-respected authority in the field of Orthopedic and Pain Management, Medical, Myofascial and Sports Massage. Both Scott and Trish wanted to expand the practice and add a wellness component to be able not only to heal those in pain, but also promote the value of preventive care. In 2009, Scott and Trish began transforming All About Massage and Wellness from a sole practitioner practice to becoming a health and wellness company. In fall 2011, Trish and her assistant, Marcy, met with their Duquesne University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) consultant seeking assistance in bringing their company to a new level.

As Trish has described it: “The support that All About Massage and Wellness received from the Duquesne SBDC has proved to be a tremendous asset to our company.” Their SBDC consultant assisted with creating a strategic marketing plan, reviewed marketing materials, and provided valuable input during website development, and logo design including branding strategies and networking resources. This information enabled All About Massage and Wellness to move projects forward with careful planning and successful outcomes.

The introduction of Corporate Wellness Programs has become a dream-come-true for Trish. These programs have allowed the company to enter a new market sector, offering services to businesses as well as individuals. With the help of the SBDC, Trish and Scott Korb have successfully created and implemented a corporate wellness PowerPoint presentation utilized to introduce employers to the many benefits corporate massage can provide for their employees. The very first presentation was a success, and they received their first corporate wellness client. Nine months later, All About Massage and Wellness continues to service this company and has added several other corporate clients. Trish Korb has “found the support of our consultant and the SBDC an invaluable tool in the future success of the company.”

Last year All About Massage and Wellness launched a website and introduced new products for their spa and wellness clients. Although the company continues their proven direct sales practices, the new website captures a broader market as their products are available for sale online. All About Massage and Wellness is proud to have recognized national sales of services and products since they have launched their new websites.

All About Massage and Wellness has shown steady growth since it branched out in 2009. The company has grown from a sole-practitioner practice into a multi-therapist establishment with five therapists working at the company’s three locations. In addition to in-office massage services, All About Massage and Wellness has created a unique Corporate Massage Program and currently services multiple contracts for employers around the Pittsburgh area. Finally, the addition of fun products and gift giving ideas has created a well-rounded health and wellness company.
