MyStartupStory: Jody Arwood, Founder of Within Arm’s Reach

November 4, 2011

Jody Arwood’s work with autistic children encouraged her to take the leap in starting her own business. Her “ah-ha” moment was when she realized the healing power of the human touch, and decided to start her own massage and bodywork therapy business called Within Arm’s Reach.

Unfortunately, Jody- like many small business owners- was not prepared to launch her business immediately. She worked at multiple spas to increase her knowledge base and save money for her startup. In this time, Jody worked to build a clientelle to prepare for the launch of Within Arm’s Reach.

    I truly agree on the healing power of human touch. I, as a massage therapist had over 20 years of experience in the field of massage. After my client receives a massage my client looks like a completely new person.
