"Awesome response Kris, thank you! I love working with other therapists and help them out as much as possible. We can only lift people up as high as we ourselves are willing to go. This is true for the clients we work with as well as our coleagues.…"

FREE BUSINESS ADVICE

A younger therapist has been coming to me for bodywork and business advice...non-stop questions while I work on her, which I freely answered. I wanted to be encouraging. Very recently she has opened a location of her own and is now posting fliers for her business around town - including in the same building where my practice is.I feel a bit betrayed - any others ever have this happen? How did you handle it?See More

Julie Onofrio replied to Artemesia's discussion Giving Out Massage Advice
"No but I would take them down. Posting flyers all over town is really a waste of time and not very targeted so hopefully she won't be very successful. I would talk to her and tell her you feel uncomfortable. Do you still work on her? I…"
