That Tank Top Is SOOO Unprofessional!

Said no client ever! At least not to me.  If you’ve ever heard a client tell you they won’t come back to you because of the length of your sleeves, chances are they aren’t on your table. I’ve received massages in a few different countries.  Private owned, luxury, hotel, franchise…you name it, I’ve been there.

I Heard That Massage Therapists Love To Be Paid In Free Exposure

This must be the message someone shared because it seems that every massage therapist keeps getting asked to work events for free. If you’re new to events or don’t have much experience with them, I want to help you all understand when it’s entirely appropriate for brands to ask you to attend for free, pay

Not Everyone Can Charge Premium Rates. Here’s Why

If you’re working in the personal service industry and you aren’t charging premium rates, it’s your own fault.  That’s probably not what you were expecting to read, but I’m known for getting directly to the point.  If this is the first piece of work you’ve read from me, you may want to read Stop Discounting

The Sexy Side Of The Spa And Massage Business

If you’re familiar at all with my writing, you knew damn well when I created that title I had no intention of going on about the sexy side of the industry.  You already know the sexy parts.  Daydreaming about the decor of your treatment room.  Fantasizing over square footage and logos.  Business cards, menus, brochures

Bubbles And Farts (Happy Mother’s Day)

Adulting is hard.  Especially during crazy social and political issues concerning us today.  I usually steer clear of controversial topics until I can figure out a way to put a humorous spin on them.  Since I can’t, now whenever anyone attempts to discuss the issues of the world with me, my response is “I’m only worried about

Opinions That Matter

Have you ever run into someone and they ask what you do?  Then you tell them you own a massage practice and they’re like “OOOH! Must be nice! You’re so lucky!”  I think what they envision is you floating around in a robe all day in and out of treatment rooms getting free services.  It must

Starting A Monthly Membership?  You better be able to answer these questions!

So you decided to jump on the bandwagon and offer a membership program to your clients. With membership based franchises saturating the market, it’s hard to not feel compelled to follow suit. Aside from the benefit of brand loyalty, memberships allow owners to receive a steady cash flow without waiting for the client to book

Spa Content – The Magic Of Ink

As primitive as it sounds, I MUST physically write. Even in college, while classmates would type full term papers on their computers my process always began with pen and paper.  Arguably the biggest waste of time is writing, editing, rewriting then typing.   But it’s somehow magical when I introduce pen to paper with writing spa
