About the Owner

Hi, I am Shelene Taylor

– the founder of Rubs Massage Studio, Spa Solai, and IAMBIZ.

I feel really lucky. I was born happy and my natural optimism ended up turning me into an accidental entrepreneur. You know how life is – some challenges just make you want to skip town, and that was my plan when I received my massage license in 1983. While waiting for the cruise ships to call back, I took a job in Tucson – my hometown – and two months later the owners decided to close the business down. I was faced with a difficult decision: go out and look for another job (the cruise ships had not yet called) or take a chance on taking over the place. Since I had already established some return clientele and there were few massage clinics in the area, I decided to take over the lease. And just like that I was the owner of a business.

I worked seven days a week – did massage six days a week and cleaned (and cried) on the seventh – wearing all the hats of a small business owner. I will never claim that it was easy. But I knew my work was worth it every time I saw the transformation in my clients: seeing each person come in with stress and pain etched into their faces and bodies, and then seeing them leave released from that suffering, was – and still is – extremely heartwarming. Three decades later, I still love this business with a passion. We have grown a lot over the years, and will continue to grow. But one thing remains a constant – witnessing that incredible change in people never gets old.
