Your Massage Business Success in 2008

Your Massage Business Success in 2008

A New Years Guide To Achieving Massage Business Success in 2008
By Amy Roberts

I’d like to welcome you warmly to 2008. I hope you are as excited as I am about this year. I’m going to share some secrets with you about how to become a successful Massage Therapist in 2008. Let’s launch this career of yours, full steam ahead!

The first thing I’m going to share with you about how to become successful in your massage business is this: think about what “success” means. Is success a certain amount of clients per week? Is success relaxing and giving the most beautiful massage you can? Or is it a combination of all of the above?

Success is different things for different people, but what I can assure you of is that success is about personal and spiritual fulfilment. This means that you can not experience success in one area that’s detrimental to another. For example if a Massage Therapist has great success in attracting a huge number of clients every year but pays their staff very little and works them into the ground then this person would not be successful.

Success is about fulfilment. True fulfilment spills over into other areas of your life as well. For example if this Therapist wanted to experience complete or true success he or she would look at the massage business as a whole and examine areas that need improving and alter the way the staff is working. This would then maintain a sense of harmony and peace throughout the clinic. This energy would then spill over into the hearts and minds of the staff and eventually the clients. This would in turn bring a deeper level of satisfaction for all those working and visiting the clinic.

Success is about really living your healthy potential. It’s about tapping in to a well of happiness inside you and creating a life accordingly. Life goes very quickly and once you are at the end of it, it would be good to look back and say “wow, I lived a full and wonderful life.” This doesn’t mean a life free of challenges, but it’s how you respond to those challenges that are where the fulfilment and growth comes from.

A definition of success could be something like;

A person conscientiously experiencing and creating truth and happiness in all areas of their life for themselves and for others.

This is just my definition; it doesn’t have to be yours. Let’s just work with it now.

There is a really easy way to think of success in all areas of your life as a gas tank with fuel in it. Is the gas tank full with motivation and happiness? Or is it running on empty? This exercise will give you a truthful perspective on your life.

You can also apply this to your massage business and where you want to go this year. Now is a perfect time to write down your goals and formulate where it is you want to be.

“The key to living a truly good life is simplicity, doing more of what you want and doing more of what worked.”- Amy Roberts

This workbook is designed to help you start the year off with some clarity and focus. There will be a series of questions on a topic that you rate from one to ten, then ways to improve it then a summary statement, which then becomes your goal.

Now begins your journey. A road of a thousand miles begins with one step. If you’d like to read the read of this article (in a workbook) just email me at

Best wishes,

Amy Roberts

    This is an inspirational message that applies to anyone who is a licensed Massage Therapist. I am whole-heartily a fan of people of this profession because they literally work hard to help either relax, help heal, or even fix kinks in certain areas of the body that are out-of-sorts due to over-exertion of activity and/or a freak accident involving a joint (such as an ankle or elbow). Getting a good Deep-Tissue or Thai Massage after such occurrences (in my case New York City next to the gym) is the perfect fix to that with proper after-care (heat therapy, cold therapy, and sports cremes to help in relaxing sore spots). Kudos to Ms. Roberts for this message!
