If you’re one of the many massage therapists who love your profession but continually struggle with finances, you need this book… Although massage therapy is a wonderful healing profession it tends to have a distinct disadvantage over other healthcare providers. Studies show that more than 50% of therapists must supplement their income by working at another job and many are forced to leave the profession entirely just a few short years after graduation! It’s a shocking statistic but it doesn’t have to be your destiny – there is a solution! The benefits of massage therapy are well-known, yet individual therapists often struggle to stay profitable simply because they lack the necessary business skills to maintain a thriving practice. The Massage (dis)Advantage introduces proven procedures used by thousands of chiropractors and medical doctors that will ensure a full schedule of clients who pay, return, and refer. In an organized and easy to follow, step-by-step format, The Massage (dis)Advantage shows you how to: • Master the business procedures that doctors have used for decades to build busy profitable practices. • Attract and keep clients who pay, return, and refer. • Establish yourself as an expert in your town. • Establish referral networks with local chiropractors and medical doctors. • Avoid the most common practice-destroying mistakes. • Organize special events and promotions that attract new clients. • Promote yourself and your clinic professionally at very low (or no) cost. • Educate your clients so they understand the need to return regularly. • And so much more… Whether you have years of experience, are a new student, or employ massage therapists, this concise and straight-forward system contains the practical advice you need to build your dream practice and stay profitable throughout your career.
