We can all agree that massage therapy is one of the most effective and important components in today’s health care system.
So why are some massage therapists not compensated accordingly? Why are some massage therapists not able to live a life that includes abundant security, relaxation, self-care, education, adventure, or anything else that they may desire?
The answer is a complicated one.
It all comes down to what each massage therapist needs in determining how much money is needed to pay for the lifestyle he or she wants.
The U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics states that demand for massage therapy is expected to increase by 20 per cent between 2010 and 2020, a rate that is higher than other occupations.
So, how can you get a jump on this trend and earn the highest amount possible?
First look at the financial aspects of running a practice, such as fee-setting, marketing and sales.
Another strategy could be to appeal to multiple client types by offering different kinds of massages.
You could also consider starting a membership program for your business. In this model, clients pay a preset amount each month in order to access massage services. Enrolling high numbers of clients into automatic payment programs can help generate regular income, and not all the clients may take advantage of their monthly massage availability.
