Giving away massage is NOT a marketing expense

Every once in a while I see someone purporting to give marketing advice to massage therapists suggest that we write off massage giveaways as marketing expenses. The latest is at http://www.integrative-healthcare.org/mt/archives/2013/04/fostering-relationships-between-physicians-and-massage-therapist...

Table width extenders for arms?

I have some clients who can't fully relax their arms on the table without their arms falling off... so, I need to consider a table width extender.

Curious to hear from anyone who has worked with any. What was your experience (pros/cons)? Brand/model?

Re: Awkard silence

Re: Toastmasters... they already have a massage therapist

As far as I know, your profession is irrelevant to most Toastmaster groups (although all groups are different, and some are focused in specific ways)... there is probably more than one in your area too.

The description of this book makes it sound like much more than the OP... sounds like an interesting read. Looks like he visited Himalayan Healers too... I intend to do so one day, and I wonder what his experience was like.

If you are interested in private practice, start it now but offer free student practice sessions. Treat it all exactly the way you would if you were charging. When you graduate you'll transition to charging. But you'll hit the ground running because you've already been learning and practicing what w...

Re: New student - trouble finding people to massage

Finding people to work on and fitting them in to your schedule are two different problems. I'd suggest: 1. Identify times in your upcoming schedule that you would be available to do practice sessions. 2. Advertise those session times to recruit signups. Lots of people jump on free student massages, ...

Re: Vaccine Hysteria on the Rise

This wave of skepticism and distrust is what our healthcare system & government gets for being so untrustworthy in so many ways. The corrupting influence of corporate money in both government and medicine is so rampant that this kind of response only makes sense.

Athletica, good work with the videos. I know if I actually put the time in this would be great for marketing. How does your existing clientele respond to them?
