Our Ex-Sighting Story
Mr. Dante Tiongson, president-owner of the revolutionary VIBES Massage Clinic chain, became visually impaired before he could even finish an accounting degree in college. It took him 5 years to accept his blindness, and when he did, his vision for a blind massage business has never been clearer than anything.
After a stint as trainer for blind masseurs under a government program, he saw that trained masseurs ended up unemployed. This prompted him to start VIBES in 1992, a clinic that offers therapeutic massage by the blind, the first and only of its kind in the Philippines. VIBES, which stands for “Visually Impaired Brotherhood for Excellent Services,” trains individuals who are visually impaired or have disabilities in order to give them gainful employment and live productive lives. To achieve this goal, they have put up a special massage training center for the blind and disabled in Quezon City.

In the late 90s, no less than the Father of Philippine Franchising himself, Mr. Sammie Lim, sought out VIBES, after European tourism journals cited the blind massage in the Philippines as “the best in the world.” Since then, VIBES Massage has been featured regularly as a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Project of the Philippine Franchise Association franchise expos.
In 2013, VIBES tapped Francorp for guidance in developing a professional franchise system. Francorp then adopted VIBES as well as its CSR project.
Today, with more than two decades of business experience, VIBES has trained and employed over 500 visually-impaired masseurs and 150 sighted dependents of persons with disabilities.
