Hello Kathy,
I am a CEU provider for infant massage, the class is open to LMT, OT, PT, Nurses, or teachers, let me know if you are interested. Infant Massage Institute, Inc. is located in Tamarac.(20 min. from Ft Lauderdale or Boca raton)

I am going to be in the Ft Lauderdale/Boca Raton area the first week in dec and was wondering if anyone knew of any ce classes being held in that area at that time preferably one that is open to more than massage therapist as I will be traveling with a couple nurses interested in expanding there knowledge aromatherapy would also be fine

How many of you are close to Pensacola??? I am looking for some deep relaxing intricate work. Trade or paid I receive plenty of reiki, pranic, and Thai work but not a lot of deep relaxation. I would love a two hour session..

Hi all,

I'm currently getting a new mobile massage service started in Miami. The intention is to become known as the Deep Tissue specialists and really focus on DT/Sports Massage for active people.
I'm contracting enthusiastic therapists now. If you're interested this is the link on Craigslist:

Things are going to turn around soon!

It's a hard world in FL right now. the economy is beating peopls sensless and locating a clientele is really tough. Also some FL massage schools graduate students by the buss load so there are plenty of us around.I recomend planning for at least 2-3 years operating expenses. Networking is also essential.

Hi Tanya, I moved to FL from Pennsylvania a bit ago and I have had a difficult time establishing a clientele. I have opened a clinic and in this economy I would recommend keeping your overhead as low as possible. Rent a room in an established practice or business. What has worked best for me is joining networking groups which takes time and money in membership dues.

Hi everyone,

I just moved here from Virginia. I am currently working for a resort that I drive 35 minutes one way to get to. Unfortunately, it has been extremely slow and I have spent more money in gas getting to and from work than what I'm getting paid for. The resort and I have both offered specials in bring in business. The clients I have done are extremely happy with my work but usually won't return to the resort for several months since they live in other locations. My husband is encouraging me to work closer to home and maybe rent a space. However, I am unsure since I don't have a clientele. I have seen an opportunity to rent a room in a busy salon. I am looking closer to home at places where I will have more of an opportunity to build a clientele rather than at the resort where there is a constant stream of vacationers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
