MASSAGE ON THE BEACH (MOTB) is a small social enterprise known for the value it creates for its customers, sponsors, apprentices, community and other stakeholders.
Our business is simple, and is focused on world class service that is effective and efficient, whilst remaining in harmony with our environment.
The familiar black and white gazebos have become a defining landmark and meeting place on the beach.
Our core service is a simple, understated but highly effective form of massage, a house style combining Swedish and deep tissue, with elements of Feldenkrais, Tragerwork and Rolfing. We offer 20-and 40-minute massages for back neck and shoulders, and 20 mins for legs.
Our service is further adapted for our corporate and home massage services.
MOTB operates on systemic management principles and a 360◦ value creation strategy. We are a learning organisation.
Our measure of quality is defined by achieving exceptional value through great benefits at lower than expected costs, and delivering satisfaction through consistent performance that exceeds your expectations over time.
MOTB has 10 clearly identified stakeholders which include our customers, our staff, the Camps Bay community, our sponsors, other traders, Cape Town Tourism and the Cape Town City Council social equity program.
To each one of these stakeholders, in accordance with their needs and possibilities, of our own volition, we have committed to apply this model of quality to create value and satisfaction.
This is not just a marketing decision, it based in a deep personal philosophy of service and commitment to a higher purpose.
