If you are struggling with your massage practice, it's probably not your fault.
Consider these facts:
Many massage schools are underfunded and understaffed, and they have to focus on making sure you learn the best massage skills possible. As a result, most schools don't teach massage therapists the massage marketing and massage business skills they need to succeed.
What is even worse is that even the most prominent massage schools only spend about 5% of their curriculum teaching massage marketing, and many others do not teach any massage marketing or massage business skills at all. Imagine if you tried to ride a bike without being taught how, do you think you would be good at it? What about snow boarding? Do you think you would be good at snowboarding if you didn't take lessons? Chances are you wouldn't and you might even get hurt. It is no wonder that practitioners have such a hard time with massage marketing.
As a result, a large number of massage practitioners struggle throughout most of their career and either burn out or are forced to enter into other professions, which are usually less fulfilling, after only a few years.
Most practitioners are taught to believe that word of mouth marketing is the only way to build your practice, and that is takes years to do so. This is completely untrue and will be explained later on this page.
The popularity of massage continues to grow every year, and this increasing popularity is causing new massage therapists to enter into the field in record numbers. This market saturation is driving down prices and creating a disaster for massage practitioners who don't have good business and massage marketing skills.
There are many gifted massage therapists who struggle to make ends meet despite being extraordinarily talented healers.
95% of all small businesses fail and one of the major reasons why is a lack of business and marketing skills.
According to statistics, most holistic practitioners are earning less than $35,000 per year and most are not satisfied with the amount of clients they have. This is NOT the picture you visualized when you were in massage school.
You can do something about it, and things can be different for you.
Does the following sound like you?
Do you worry that you won’t last much longer in this field and are concerned about what you will do?
Are you working for someone else and want to go out on your own but are afraid you won’t make it? Don’t know how you will get clients?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, please read on. You can earn a good living in the massage business and I can help you. There IS a better way.
So who am I and how can I help?
My name is Susanne Runion and I have been involved with alternative health my entire life, and it is extremely important to me. I worked in the computer industry for ten years, and after the dot com crash, I felt like I did not have enough fulfillment in my life. Since alternative health was always my passion, I decided to make a radical change and enter the healing arts. I started off as a massage therapist and changed to hypnotherapy and coaching 9 years later.
My first six months in business were difficult. I had absolutely no idea how to get clients and build my business. I was absolutely sure I would fail. Every month I had no idea if I would be able to pay the rent or not. I didn’t go on any vacations, and I worked 7 days a week (4 days a week at my practice and 3 days a week at a job).
Several times, I actually had to ask my parents to borrow money! It seemed like I was always working, when I wasn’t seeing my private clients and working my massage job, I was worrying because I didn’t have enough massage clients or enough money to pay bills.
I had a lot of experiences where I saw firsthand just how powerful massage marketing is and how it can totally transform a massage business, and once I learned how to successfully market my massage business, things changed dramatically for me. In a short time, my massage practice filled up and I often had to turn clients away.
I worked as a manager at a very upscale day spa in San Francisco. I watched how this small, unknown massage business totally transformed itself into one of the most successful day spas in the city after hiring a marketing consultant and using massage marketing techniques. I learned exactly what it takes to make an massage business succeed.
I have been involved with networking groups and events and have seen how numerous alternative health professionals used marketing to propel their businesses to great success.
This all completely fascinated me and marketing became my obsession. I read over a hundred books on marketing, small business and finance. When I wasn’t reading, I was trying out all of these techniques and inventing new ones.
I also created a website for my massage business and was determined to make it a success. I again read many books and spent many hours of trial and error until I found what worked. This resulted in me developing a website for my massage business that earned my practice tens of thousands of dollars.
Every time I met a new alternative health professional, the first thing I would ask them is what types of marketing they do. All of this knowledge enabled me to create a very busy and successful massage practice in a short period of time in a very competitive market.
I felt compelled to share this knowledge with other practitioners, which is why I created this program.
Read what some other therapists/practitioners are saying:
Susanne is a colleague of mine and I've seen her succeed in her business dramatically within the past 5 years. She has been an inspiration to me.
I have a successful massage practice myself and reading her book inspires me even more and gives me practical solutions for my marketing strategy. Currently, I am working with a business coach - he's very helpful in many different levels - but Susanne's course focuses and pinpoints some of the work my coach and I have been working on for months. I highly recommend her book to every service-related business out there.
Definitely a page-turner."
