Sandy Saldano

Founder & President, Licensed Therapist

I’m Sandy Saldano, owner of Therapeutic Kneads Ltd.  For the last 30 years, I’ve personally helped people improve their life with massage therapy.  I’ve developed a clinic-like system that creates treatment plans to help clients achieve drug-free pain relief.

Our team of licensed massage therapists go through a rigorous training program to ensure that body mechanics, technique and client communications are refined to ensure that therapists can enjoy a long-lasting career.  We give full time benefits including insurance, paid time off and free massages to take good care of the staff that is taking great care of the clients.

A great culture depends on a whole team approach where staff are compensated well for their time and talents.  Limiting massage output to 5-6 hours per day with breaks, paid CE’s, and team building activities are what makes Therapeutic Kneads a unique and great find to help you reach your future goals and to achieve longevity in the field of massage therapy.

Benefits include health, dental and vision insurance, short-term disability, paid vacation, holidays, sick and personal days, up to $500 per year for CE’s, paid training and many growth opportunities within our company.  You owe it to yourself to enhance the quality of your life.
