Sooo many clients tell me, "I need to come in more regularly, but I get busy and forget to book. Or " I wish it was a bit more affordable".
I was not certain that a massage membership would be a program suitable for a sole practice, or that my clients would want one - so I sent out a survey. Boy was I surprised. A whopping 88% said they would be "Interested" or "Very Interested" in a discount massage program and a 20% discount seemed to be the sweet spot to entice people to participate.
So that's what I have created. A simple no nonsense membership program designed to provide routine monthly treatments for you at an amazingly affordable price. Membership will help you to create a self care commitment, plus you'll be building a relationship with a thoughtful caring therapist provider.
*When you commit to membership, you are helping change the culture of massage therapy. It is not a luxury, or a gift to oneself but a critical component to an overall wellness regimen.
Memberships provide a discount for every treatment. At only $90 per month, it is a savings of 20% over walk in rates and helps reinforce the idea of routine visits and incorporating massage into a wellness regimen..

Making Massage a New Year's Resolution
You know the drill. Before the ball is finished descending in Times Square and the confetti has yet to hit the floor, most of us already have made our New Year's resolutions.
Every December, as we indulge in various holiday treats, we promise ourselves that once the New Year arrives, we will take better care of our bodies, minds and spirits. 3 out of 4 Americans claim this as their top resolution. It is by far the most common. But how many of you see it through?
The reasons behind these resolutions vary from person to person, but invariably, they are a reaction to the differing stresses that play such a major part in our daily lives. Job stress, family issues and a host of other outside factors provide the motivation to get in shape and learn to cope.
And according to a recent study, many Americans are making massage one of their top New Year's resolutions.
A telephone survey of 1,000 U.S. adults found that a majority of Americans said they experienced more stress in 2015 than the previous year (56 percent), and that they are seeking new methods to deal with that increased stress methods such as massage therapy.
Three out of four Americans (75 percent) claim their New Year's resolution is to focus on taking better care of themselves and achieving a more complete work/life balance.
The study revealed that 76 percent of respondents believe relaxation is very important to health and wellness, with 73 percent of respondents rating massage as either extremely relaxing or very relaxing, compared to 51 percent who said exercise was extremely relaxing and 29 percent who opted for a glass of wine or a cocktail to relax.
Massage therapy is less being viewed as an indulgence, but as a significant component to an overall health and wellness regimen.
