I'm a massage therapist, moving to Birmingham with my husband in September. I'll have no trouble getting the paperwork set up to work legally in the UK, but I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about the financial side of massage therapy in the UK. In the US it's common for therapists to have a comission-based pay, with no taxes withheld, and most clients tip, or alternatively the therapist will rent a treatment room and set their own rates and schedule. I'm not sure what to expect in the UK and I need to attempt to create a budget. So far I haven't been able to get in contact with a massage therapist who's willing to discuss this with a stranger ;) If any of you know assage therapist, or know of a business which might be hiring, please feel free to contact me and/or forward my information. Thanks!
