How to Build A Profitable and Satisfying Private Massage Therapy Practice for The Long Haul.

This page is dedicated to Licensed or Certified Massage Therapists, Student Therapists and those who’ve graduated and are starting a private practice. We will share with you everything we have learned over 20 years of practicing massage and promote products to help you create functional, inviting and, successful practices. Above all we will share ways to keep you free from injury and help you during times when your body might begin to feel the common strains of our profession. Burn out rate is high among massage therapists so it is essential you learn how to take care of your self and know your limits.  We give so much as Massage Therapists and yet, we forget to give back to ourselves. So make sure when your giving massage, your practicing good self-care and self-massage. And don’t forget to book yourself bodywork regularly.

Books

We have chosen these particular books because we feel that Massage is not only a business, but also a way of being. Keeping your heart connected to your work will not only help people heal but they will keep coming back. Of course, it is vital to also know the business end. After many years of having a practice we realize that having a business mind along with a practicing from the heart is a sure way to succeed.
