Adam Fluke's Page

Adam Fluke is a currently practicing massage therapist and evangalist for idependent massage therapists.

"I hope to create a community of massage therapists genuinely supporting each other in creating a practice that they own. I believe every massage therapist is a business unto themselves! Simply put, every massage therapist, even if they work for someone else, is a producer of massage. The question we need to be asking ourselves is, are we willing to pay 70% of our income for a room, cheap lotion, and someone to answer the phone."

Here is the simplest truth I can come up with, when it comes to ranking in google/bing, independent massage therapists need all the help they can get. They are up against some major players in their area's that have thousands to spend on SEO, paid links, and paid content producers. What they should have is a massage organization that supports them, but this community does not.Massage and Bodywork Professionals uses only no-follow links, so if you think you are getting any help to your website…See More
