 Reasons to Invest

  • Massage robots are the solution to a shortage of therapists, the problems of sexual misconduct, and the escalating prices at massage and wellness clinics.

  • Google believes in our vision. Google invested their money to sponsor a Premiere Google Cloud Partner for two years to support development of Machine Learning, AI, and Natural Language Processing for our robot.

  • We are good at what we do. For 22 years, the founders have designed hundreds of products for Startups to Fortune 500 companies across the globe. They have launched new products in the areas of automation, aviation, military, medical, industrial, and consumer electronics. Plus, a successful Exit in 2006.




Overview


"Back"story and Innovation

In 2013, Massage Robotics co-founder and CEO, Christian Mackin, had an off-road vehicle accident in the California sand dunes that left him with a broken neck and backThese multiple fractures required urgent stabilization using titanium implants (see pictures below). During physical therapy and rehabilitation, he imagined a robot that could help him (and others) feel better as well as relieve therapists from their repetitive work.

Christian Mackin | co-Founder & CEO


Christian has been a quintessential serial entrepreneur for 22 years. In 2006, he started Kohlex, a product-design and engineering firm with customers from Australia to America. Working with Startups to Fortune-500 companies, his staff of more than 30 engineers design products for the automation, military, medical, aerospace, consumer, and industrial fields. Christian knew his team of highly-skilled engineers could turn his vision of a massage robot into a working prototype.

In 2019, during a technical support call with Google Cloud Platform, their engineers became interested in our vision of a robot that would diagnose, prescribe, and perform a massage. Three months later, Google invested both its money and engineering resources. They worked collaboratively with Massage Robotics for two years to develop the Machine Learning, AI, and Natural Language Processing capabilities of the robot we call Alex.

Superhuman Innovation

It is a unique experience to be touched by a massage robot. You won’t know until you know. You will have to feel it to understand it. The robot moves like a human and talks like a human, but Alex has superhuman memory. Alex uses Machine Learning and Artificial intelligence to recognize what you like and learn from it. After every massage, the robot is smarter. Alex is evolving.

The Problem


Why aren't more people getting massages?

If 92% of people believe massage therapy relieves pain and stress, then why don't they get massages? Also, 83% of people believe massages should be covered by their healthcare insurance (Source). We think most people believe massage therapy is a far better alternative to prescription drugs or surgery. So many roadblocks to a simple solution.

Massage Roadblocks

  • Economics: Massages are expensive for both the wellness business and their customers.
  • jhkjh
  • Staffing: There are not enough therapists to meet customer demand (Source).
  • lkj
  • Reputation: Many people avoid massages because of the common negative association with sexual misconduct.
  • jh
  • Inconvenience: The hassles of self-preparation. Do I really have to shave, shower, shine, and shampoo?
  • jh
  • Body Issues: Problems of self-esteem and anxiety about our size, shape, fitness, skin, image, appearance, and imperfections.
  • hjg
  • Awkward: What is normal about being naked with a stranger, or the uncomfortable decisions of small talk and underwear on or off?


The Solution


Robots Remove Roadblocks

  • Economics: A massage robot provides quality and quantity at a fixed cost. Our research and analysis show that leasing a robot will cost less than employing enough humans to keep up with Alex. This allows wellness franchises to charge less while still maintaining healthy margins.
  • fd
  • Staffing: Robots are more reliable than humans. This is a paradigm shift that rethinks the massage experience. Alex can work 3 shifts, 365 days a year -without vacation, sick days, holidays, benefits, or taxes - to generate significant profits.
  • gf
  • Reputation: Massage robots protect your reputation and promote your well-being. Never worry about being a victim or accused of sexual misconduct.
  • gf
  • Inconvenience: With Alex, you can show up as you are - any time of the day or night, and in any condition. No need to "get ready" to see Alex, unless you want to.
  • hgh
  • Body Issues: The massage robot will not judge or question your size, shape, fitness, skin, image, appearance, or imperfections.
  • hg
  • Awkward: The massage robot eliminates the many awkward situations that occur when you are naked in a room with a stranger.


Robotic Perfection and Organic Creativity


Innovative Design

We believe good design is both beautiful and intelligent. Our goal is to excite the senses and inspire the mind. We deliberately combined innovative materials with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Although robotic by design, Alex is personal, thoughtful, and attentive.


Alex is built on a cloud network that uses Machine Learning (ML) to understand what humans like. Every night, on schedule, Alex assimilates data from the "Borg-like" collective of all the robots. They are evolving to become better at diagnosing, predicting, and prescribing. 


Minimum Viable Product (MVP) 
Development Stage


Safety and Automation

Alex is a cobot with six-axis robotic arms that meet international safety standards for Collaborative Robotics (Source). Alex is inherently safe. The robot is simply not heavy enough, fast enough, or strong enough to be dangerous to humans.


Alex has 2 six-axis robotic arms, each with an automatic tool changer. Interchangeable fitted attachments can deliver kneading, rolling, vibration, percussion, heat, electric pulse, and other therapeutic modalities. Guided by ML, Alex strings multiple segments together to create a personalized massage routine. Each segment is defined by cloud-stored parameters for tool, location, duration, path, speed, and force.

Motion and Voice Control

Alex biomimics the organic motions and touch pressures of a human therapist, based on algorithms and data stored in the cloud. Performing percussion, vibration, or kneading motions, Alex never gets tired - helping relieve your pain and decrease your stress.


Alex is enabled with Natural Language Processing powered by Dialogflow, which is the same platform used by Google Assistant. Using a normal voice, Alex can be guided to the left and right and to push harder or softer during the massage. Because Alex remembers every nudge, it will deliver a perfect massage every time.


Mobile App

We are rethinking the massage experience. We have developed a Massage Robotics Mobile App to enable Users to personalize their massage session. The mobile app is connected to the same cloud database and Recommendation Engine that the robot uses to create automated massage routines. Users can select from existing routines or create their own.


The mobile app screen layout allows Users to select from different categories of massage routines. We think the best category could be For You, which displays individualized recommendations based on AI and ML. In addition, the mobile app also provides other categories such as Ailments, Activities, Lifestyle, Sports, and Target Areas.

Select massage routines, customize, and share.The above rendering of the Company's app is currently available in the Apple App Store, 
but not yet available to the public.


Calibration and Sharing

As part of the user profile setup, Alex collects and stores six calibration points (see figure below). These measured coordinates are used in a proprietary algorithm, which digitally morphs each routine to match any individual User's body shape. So a routine configured for the body shape of even the largest NFL football player can be shared with the tiniest ballerina.


Users can intuitively create personalized massage routines and then share the routines publicly or privately. A doctor can share with a patient, a celebrity with a fan, or friends within a social group. This network of Users will continuously create and share fresh routines, so you will never get bored.


The Market


Deca-billion in Addressable Revenue

(Source)


Today's massage is evolving. We are disrupting the 5,000-year history of massage therapy (Source). We are creating a completely new massage experience in the $4 trillion wellness market. The global massage industry is valued at $110 billion in 2019. While the massage device market alone is estimated to be worth $10 billion in 2022, with a CAGR of 13.8% (Source). Over five years, we estimate that capturing only 1% of the 360,000 massage therapists in the United States (Source) will produce revenues greater than $1 billion based on our expected RaaS agreement terms once the product is commercially viable.


Revenue Model

RaaS just makes sense!


Our business model is based on Robot-as-a-Service (Raas), which is planned to be implemented once the product reaches a commercially viable stage. The model is a monthly subscription-based B2B approach for wellness businesses across sectors, including healthcare, commercial, corporate, private, and government. Similar to the rise of SaaS (and then HaaS) -- which hit "tech" in Silicon Valley by storm - RaaS is gaining momentum across the world.


RaaS just makes sense. We are seeing all types of robots leaving the factory floor and entering restaurants and hospitality facilities. Our massage robots will soon be entering wellness clinics. Since buying a robot is expensive and they are a depreciating asset, RaaS allows companies to reduce capital expenditures and lower operating costs.


RaaS Advantages


  • High Margins: Profits built into recurring revenue and usage (as-a-service).

  • Customer Retention: Stronger barrier to sales competition, making it more difficult for new entrants to displace.

  • Facilitate Sales: Greasing the skid for sales by eliminating typical capital expense barriers and making way for rapidly scaling growth.

  • One-Stop Solution: The business only pays a service as a subscription, without the need to purchase hardware or equipment.

  • Scalability: Business growth and system flexibility go hand-in-hand. Future expansion or upgrading can be done with ease.


Sales Channels


  • Healthcare: Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Clinic, Sports Rehab, etc.

  • Commercial: Massage Clinics, Gyms, Hotel chains, etc.

  • Corporate: Professional Sports Clubs, College Sports, Fortune 500, etc.

  • Government: Police, Fire, Military, etc.

  • Private: Luxury Homes, Yachts, Celebrities, etc.


Our Traction


Innovative Technology and Press Enthusiasm

We have completed our first high-functioning Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Initiated from our mobile app, the robot can carry out massage routines. An automatic tool changer enables autonomous tool changes between different segments of a routine. The robot is capable of voice control to change the motion path and force exerted. Sensory data is collected every second during a massage and stored in the database. 


2018: We demonstrated our robot in the pavilion at the OCTANe Technology Innovation Forum in Newport Beach, California. Videos of our demonstration went viral across social media platforms garnering over 10M views.

Source | Source | Source


While these Views demonstrated significant social proof for the concept, the comments validated our vision and the Likes inspired us to think bigger.


2019: We called technical support at Google for a simple network problem. The Google Cloud Platform support team was so inspired by our vision of a robot that we imagined will diagnose, prescribe and perform a massage, that Google ended up investing. They invested money and engineering resources from 2019 to 2021 to develop the Machine Learning, AI and Natural Language Processing capabilities of the robot. 


Thanks to Google, users can currently speak in their normal voice in English and we shortly anticipate adding Mandarin and 42 other languages to command the robot's motion and force. The robot also stores thousands of data points during each massage as well as User profiles and preferences. Then the robot uses this information to recommend massages routines - similar to how Netflix recommends movies.

Professional Life

I am a quintessential serial entrepreneur who designed a robot while on the trail to Mt. Everest Base Camp.

In 1998, I started my first company, Geokinetics; and in 2001, my next company was Cellular Science. In 2004, I started Infrastructure Solutions and designed a cabinet for the wireless telecommunications industry. Together with my brother Sean, we produced $7 million in sales during 2005. In April of 2006, we successfully exited Infrastructure Solutions with a cash sale to Powerwave Technologies. We then sold an additional $25 million of cabinets over the next 12 months. In 2006, we started Kohlex, a product-design and engineering firm with customers from Australia to America. Working with Startups to Fortune-500 companies, our staff of more than 30 engineers design products for the automation, medical, aerospace, consumer, and industrial fields.

Private Life

I am an outnumbered family man. I’ve been married for more than 30 years and have three beautiful daughters! For fun, I fly sailplanes competitively. In fact, a few years ago I was ranked in the top ten in the United States. See my loops over Mt. Whitney ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7RU8PZkoBA )

In March of 2013, I broke my back and neck in an off-road vehicle accident in the sand dunes of California. I have always appreciated titanium, but I usually admired it for mountain bike parts. I never thought titanium parts would end up holding my spine together. This life-changing accident and extensive physical therapy inspired the design of our massage robot. I imagined an autonomous robot that could diagnose, prescribe, and perform a massage to help people feel better and to relieve therapists from repetitive work.

Five months after the accident, I traveled to Nepal with my oldest daughter. We volunteered to teach English to young monks who live in a monastery near Mt. Everest. See summary video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U8W_-_vF5U ). While living on the mountain during the month of August, we decided to trek to Everest Base Camp located at 18,000 feet. I invented much of the roadmap for creating the massage robot along the trail. Over the next 12 days, while recuperating in my sleeping bag every night, I would dream about how a robot would never get tired of making me feel better. 

Mr. Mackin currently spends over 40 hours per week working for Massage Robotics, Inc. while also serving as CEO for another company Kohlex, LLC for approximately 4 hours per week.

I see miracles every day.  

Sometimes the miracle is expected, “I can get out of bed.”; sometimes it is sublime, “I can walk outside with my grandchildren”; sometimes the experience is overwhelming, “I am not afraid of falling”; sometimes it is life-changing, “I can take myself to the bathroom.”  

I enjoy the rewarding challenge of being a Physical Therapist (PT). I help people regain their lives and restore their quality of life. For thirty years, I have worked with people from all walks of life as well as from every stage of life—from newborns and children to teenagers and elderly patients.

After earning a Master’s in Exercise Physiology from Brigham Young University, I graduated from California State University Long Beach in Exercise Science with a board certification in Physical Therapy. I have continued to develop my professional skill-set with hands-on experience working with patients in hospitals, nursing homes, fitness centers, workplaces, rehab clinics, and private homes.

As a Home Health PT, I love working one-on-one with my patients—focusing on their mobility, safety, cognition, balance, strength, and endurance.

How does an Army veteran go from selling pantyhose from the basement of his home in Wisconsin to becoming a franchise savant? It is a long and crazy road that Dennis Conklin has been on, and he wouldn’t change it for the world.

In 2005, Dennis’ wife came home after a massage at Massage Envy and told Dennis about the new and first-to-market member-based concept. Dennis bought regional developer and franchisee rights to San Diego without ever stepping foot into a Massage Envy. “This was such a unique business model, and I knew I wanted to be part of it from the start.” As the business grew at epic speed, in 2007 Dennis reached out to his youngest daughter, Dani, to come on board. 

After successfully building the Massage Envy brand in San Diego, in 2010 the father-daughter team signed on to become the regional developers and franchisees for European Wax Center (EWC). With the franchise market providing several solid opportunities, in 2012 Dennis signed on to become the regional developer of The Joint…the chiropractic place in San Diego and Orange County. “This was being operated by the original Massage Envy team, who I was very confident in,” said Dennis. 

In 2014 Dennis and Dani moved on to their next brand-building opportunity, Amazing Lash Studio. Their efforts have not gone unnoticed in any of the four brands with accolades including 2 Million Dollar Club and strongest sales closing at Massage Envy and Brand Ambassador at Amazing Lash Studio.

Your generous investments have pushed us over the 10% mark

Some investors have reached out to speak with us, and what they are saying validates our thesis: robots will have a place in human wellness fulfillment. One investor owns several clinics within one of the top national massage franchises. He said that maintaining enough staffing to treat his customers is a significant challenge, and he believes robots could help solve this problem. An owner-operator of a large chiropractic clinic in California told us that he believes robots can help him reduce his liability for specific treatments such as ultrasound therapy. He also said that, for over a decade, every day, there has always been someone who missed their work shift.

We have 45 investors at the Massage Robotics party now, but we certainly have room for more. Please invite your friends to join us. We are having so much fun creating a massage robot that we believe will make a significant difference in people’s well-being.

We’ll be back soon with another update!

Cheers,

Google-Backed Startup, Massage Robotics, Set to Show How Robots Can Help People Heal with Problem-Free Massage Therapy - Launches Equity Crowdfunding via StartEngine


'Feel Human Again. We make robots because life hurts.'

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Sept. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Massage Robotics recently highlighted a number of problematic access issues with massage therapy that continue to keep patients from choosing massage when they need it. Issues like affordability, pain, time management, shortage of therapists, and body privacy. Founded by Christian Mackin and Sean Mackin, Massage Robotics is the creator of the first life-sized massage robot – fully articulated and able to learn and evolve its massage routines via Machine Learning, AI, and Natural Language Processing using Google's Dialogflow. These robots will solve many problems facing the multibillion-dollar massage and massage therapy industry.

More than just a startup, Massage Robotics has already garnered backing from the Google Cloud Platform, gained a star-studded expert Board of Advisors, received nationwide media attention, and presented findings at multiple prestigious trade and tech shows. And the company is currently running a successful equity crowdfunding campaign via StartEngine.

"Probably the most glaring issue with massage are patients' fears of body security," said Christian Mackin, Co-Founder and CEO. "In a post-pandemic world, touchless technologies are increasingly popular. Many people don't like being touched by someone unfamiliar. And with allegations of sexual misconduct in the news from time to time, the massage industry sometimes struggles with its reputation. Robots solve this problem precisely because they are not human."

"Ultimately, we're offering a Robot-as-a-Service (RaaS) monthly subscription for B2B wellness clinics. And we anticipate that these will be priced to be approximately equal to the monthly income of one therapist. And other problems like affordability, shortage of therapists, and time management are solved by our overarching business plan, with the guidance of our advisory board."

  • Julieanne Downing: Seasoned business administrator with expansive Health and Wellness experience as owner/operator of multiple businesses.

  • Dennis Conklin: Savvy entrepreneur and angel investor with a nose for successful business models and branding.

"Robots can work 24/7/365 – without vacation, sick days, holidays, benefits, or taxes," said Sean Mackin, Co-Founder and Business Developer. "Businesses can enjoy healthy profit margins while also making massage more affordable. Our robots are also enabled with Natural Language Processing powered by Dialogflow – the same platform used by Google Assistant. Using a normal speaking voice, robots can be guided to the left and right and to push harder or softer during the massage. And because the robots remember every nudge and each client's preferences, they deliver a perfect massage every time. The robots are already learning what humans like – they are already evolving."

"We've implemented an ambitious growth plan to explore the potential here," said Sean Mackin. "Widening our marketing channels to include trade shows and partnerships for example, all to reach our primary B2B target audience of massage clinics, hotel chains, along with professional and collegiate sports teams. We will continue to release news and updates as we hit important company milestones."

HOW INVESTING WORKS

WHY STARTENGINE?

SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
