Meet Alex Joseph Stampfl of Alex Stampfl Massage and Bodywork in Lincoln Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alex Joseph Stampfl.

Alex Joseph, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I graduated from Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy in Chicago in May of 2016, becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist. I worked at three jobs as a massage therapist before starting my own business in April of 2016. My first job was at a gym where I gained much needed work experience. Shortly after that, I was hired at a small spa where I gained a lot my confidence as a massage therapist. My third job I worked alongside a chiropractor, where I began to develop a focus for the medical approach to massage. Having always wanted to work for myself, I decided it was time.

In order to improve and grow my business, I thought it necessary to take classes, seminars, and read lots of books on business. Having a small business is a daily learning experience. I plan to continue my education, and strive to build up my business to continually provide a valuable experience for my clients.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Getting the business off its feet was a challenge.
Getting my name out and building a clientele.
The uncertainty of the business, the ups and downs.

Please tell us about Alex Stampfl Massage and Bodywork.
My business is called Alex J Stampfl Massage and Bodywork. I work to promote health and wellness through clinical massage and bodywork. I help people to get rid of their chronic pains and aches, and help them to learn how to relax again. I specialize in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage. Most of my clients are sitting at a computer/desk all day, every day. I also see a lot of law students, and students in medical school or nursing.

I would say I am proud of the smoothness at which the business operates and the impeccable service that I offer. I am proud of the ease with which people can book their appointments, and the great service that my clients receive consistently every time. Through my business, I form relationships with clients, based on trust and consistent service which I work to ensure they find satisfactory.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I started out with only doing 4 days a week, if I had to start over, I would have started out full time – doing 6-7 days a week.

If I had to start over, I would have like to establish a better marketing strategy.

  • 60 min Introductory massage – 1 per person – $39
