Marketing N Massage Valentine's Day!

Postby healingfaerie on Thu Feb 02, 2012 8:18 pm

Hello Again! I have been brainstorming some good ideas for Valentine's Day deals for my clients, and to snag some new clients.
I have met up with another therapist, and we will be hosting couples' massage for about half of february. we were thinking about making it pretty spa-like with separate foot baths and some thai massage mixed in.
Does anyone else have ideas as far as this holiday?
Seems SO perfect for massage therapists. :) :smt007

If your a spa based practice this is probably a good time to promote the sale of gift cards. One of the restaurants in the city aligned themselves with a spa. They had a contest for a free massage package. The restaurant promoted the contest via newsletter.

Just be careful not to pretend to be something your not. At my clinic we do everything in our power to turn away the v-day clients - we know our market and make it very clear what type of patient we target.

My treatment room is large enough to do couple's massage -
but I don't promote it. Lots of other places offer it, and frankly I don't like the extra time it takes for set up etc.

This year I kept it simple and highlighted only an aromatherapy massage with lavender or rose.
My big push was geared towards gift certificates - especially for packages.

I'm not too keen on couple's massage, but I do promote around the basis of loving your body and treating it to some TLC.
