Full Range Therapy
Why we got started?
A message from one of the founders, Amanda Gauthier;
Some say the average person will spend 90,000 hours of their life at work. If you think that’s bad…well it’s also suggested that 80% of people are dissatisfied with their jobs. We think the single biggest factor contributing to this dissatisfaction is the lack of freedom we have in our work life today. No one wants to wait for Freedom 55! Or I should say we didn’t. Hence the idea of Full Range Therapy was born.
Who we are?
Each of us came from jobs that we absolutely hated. Not because the work was particularly hard, but because we simply felt as if our work life was stealing from us. Time that we could never get back. Marc once told me he had calculated how many weeks of vacation he would have in his lifetime if he continued working in his career as a Journeyman telecommunications technician. He said “Amanda, it would be slightly less than 100 weeks.” He looked disgusted and said “that’s under 2 years off in my entire LIFE!” That resonated with me.
At the time, Marc was working at Shaw, Sam was just laid off from Shaw, and I was working toward a Bachelor of Science Degree at Grant MacEwan University while working part time as a Journeyman Scaffolder. I ended up taking a business minor and enrolled in a prerequisite class called Sustainable Business. That course changed my life! The whole concept of this class was based on business practices that strive to balance the Triple Bottom Line – profits, people, and the planet. Essentially to balance the scales you cannot sacrifice one to benefit the others. This isn’t easy to do, but I knew it was the key to true success. The ability to change one’s life and to have a positive impact on those around you.
The three of us knew we wanted to make a difference and we were committed to try to adhere to the Triple Bottom Line. So, we enrolled into Massage Therapy school at Alberta College of Massage Therapy and began our journey.
