Re: Massage on the honor system

I have enjoyed reading this thread and have long been searching for away to "price" my services so that both my clients and I are comfortable. I would be ecstatic to find myself in a place where I could just let clients pay what they would. I can imagine it being so freeing mentally and emotionally...

Difference between Proffesional and Certified

Can someone tell me why you would pay extra for the Certified Insurance as opposed to just the profesional level? Someone said you have more protection if your certified then just having the profesional insurance? Is this true?

Thanks,

Re: Angry with CA SB 731

I have to say working in San Diego getting state certified relieved me of yearly registration requirements (state will only be every two years) and will save me money. I know its a little bit of a hassel to get it done but the state reg will certainly improve my life.

Re: Has anyone used the Therapist Thumb?

Use the Therapists thumb on my client yesterday, she kept commenting how smooth it felt. Big thumbs up for an excellent product that I will continue to use. Also they are a work of art and beauty when you look at them

Re: Has anyone used the Therapist Thumb?

Would like to order the thumb saver but when went to massage warehouse the $29.00 tool turned into a $41.00 order with shipping and tax :shocked: Just can't justify that. I've order thumbsavers and the shipping and service was excellent and reasonably priced. I'm will to pay $30.00 not $41.00 Jason

I would agree the kneeling can be a problem with someone with knee problems. That being said the prone position is awesome and gives you tremendous acess to lower back.

Most asian modalities are performed fully clothed shiatsu, tui na ect., accupressure can be done fully clothed. Mostly pressure and holding techniques, I really like doing it and have a client every two weeks who gets a two hour session. I do prefer sweedish though.

I can give you my perspective. Learning to do a massage with good mechanics is extremely important!!! I've hurt my wrists by doing poor mechanics, and recently I strained my thumb by over using it. That being said I really enjoy doing bodywork part time. The three rules I go by when I remember to is...

My advice would be to start practicing in a locale that you can live with. For example I practice in San Diego and see clients only in San Diego. That way I'm only beholden to San Diego licensure.

I'm looking forward to state wide regulations in Sept this year :D

Hey,

It looks like your not going to get anything voluntarily from your ex client, so why not just turn it over to collections and let them work their magic :shock: . Sixty percent of something is better then 100 percent of nothing.
