I feel unprepared to start massaging clients in my program. We have been spending a lot of time on theory and not much time on technique. I am starting to worry as we have to have 24 outside massages…Continue

"Charging extra for a heated table doesn't make sense, this would be a value added to your service. All the MT's I know don't charge more for deep tissue. Might have more to do with the local MT scene in your area. You might be able to…"

"Sorry, I should clarify....i meant AFTER becoming licenced. With Groupon, it seems like people don't want to pay a dollar a min and want discount massages. I regularly see Groupon ads for 35 or even 45 dollar 60min massages. How do we compete…"

"Depending on where you live, most students cannot get a business license, so charging for outcall massage services may not be allowed by local/state ordinance.  Also, your student insurance policy may not cover you as an unlicensed therapist…"

Student massage therapist question....How much to charge for outcalls?

I am a massage therapy student with a question on how much to charge for outcall massage sessions. I was thinking 70 for Swedish and 80 for deep tissue massage 1 hour massages. My massage table heats up, so should I add a price with that feature? Any suggestions? Thanks!See More

"In my opinion, a bad idea.  Every place I’ve worked.  It’s not free exactly.   But people trade massages.  People need money."

"You really should return it.  This table will likely be with you for another 10 years if you take good care of it.  You don't want to have any of the table integrity compromised if it is not necessary."

"I’d send that picture off to the supplier and the manufacturer of the table.  See what they say.  That’s not right.  You should be compensated for, or get a new table.  Let us know what they say.  "

Received ripped massage table.

I ordered a massage table for school and shelled out a lot of money for it. I just received it today and opened up the box. It has a rip in the fabric about 2/3 of an inch on the side where you wouldn't be able to see it once it has been folded out into a table. My question is would you return it for a non damaged one, or would you live with it and maybe get a repair kit?See More
