Massage Relaxation is the Reason in the Season To Give the Gift of Massage Therapy
By Karen Zaharatos



By Massage Professor
It is that time of year of again to remind clients that the best gift to give and receive [ruling out a diamond for some] is a massage therapy series for themselves or a massage gift certificate for family and close friends.

Massage therapy is the one of the most healthy, cleanest, most green American gift one can give this holiday season. It is a great selling point how green massage therapy is. We even recycle our oil bottles! Remind clients how a personal massage gift certificate is much more loving than a general massage gift certificate purchased from a massage franchise.

Make your massage business work by making your making business stand out. Make it yours. Own it. Be ethical and dress professional. Massage clients will definitely see the value in giving a massage gift certificate directly from the massage therapist who will be giving the gift of massage. Be proud to use this personal selling feature. The massage client can then be assured and rest easy that their money has been spent wisely. Design your gift certificate for your massage specialty.

Do not be fooled. Your competition the massage franchises will be pushing gift certificate galore. It is great to learn lessons from those who are successful. There is no doubt massage franchises are successful and a real life saver for some massage therapist by providing jobs to pay off student loans. The only difference is that massage therapists who work for massage franchises will have to split the gift certificate commission with the massage franchise.

So, even if you work for a massage franchise you can still sell your own massage gift certificates outside of the massage franchise contract agreement. This is a perfect time of the year to try and add a few new massage clients to your own massage practice while being ethical. There are so many computer programs that you can easily print off gift certificates on nice paper to sell as loving gifts instead of giving plastic to family members and friends. Do not be embarrassed. They are going to purchase a gift from somewhere to give and they might as well give one of the greatest gifts to give and that is massage therapy.

If you own your own massage establishment or day spa then the Small Business Saturday that is being promoted is an excellent marketing opportunity for your business. RUN not walk to FedEx Print Shop and get a banner made up for the Small Business Shopping Day. Perhaps best to leave the actual date off and leave the sign up to remind locals to shop local with their local massage therapist.

And when you need massage continuing education please remember your fellow massage therapists here at Massage online Professor. Happy Holidays and Small Business Days!
