a community of practitioners
Although you may be intending to be self employed, to assist you in obtaining the approximately 50 clients needed to have a successful practice, consider being a contractor. You can contact spas, chiropractors, physical and occupational therapists and offer services on a contractual basis. This is good for them as they do not "hire" you and have you on staff as an hourly employee. They would call you (preferably in advance) to tell you that they have a need for your services. This would also get you a higher fee on each massage. You should be able to get anywhere from 60% to $60 per massage. Contact me for other ideas.
