Many questions are asked when we see a wheelchair role into our offices.
Do I start moving things out of the way, how are they going to get on my table,
will the client fall off, what modality can I use, will I hurt them?
Let me start by giving a little perspective from a wheelchair (chair) user’s
point of view.

How does it feel when the therapist becomes the patient?
I am writing this as the Buffalo Bills are losing (again) with little chance of recovery. And, as I sit at my computer, I am recovering from a back flare-up. It has been with me for
12 years now, since that horse decided she did not like me on her…
I am always amazed how many therapists do not have literature in their offices for educational purposes.
I suggest putting out a quarterly newsletter that you can post on your website, in the office and do as mailers. Clients get educated about the wonders of massage and their health and stay connected w/ your business.
I also use these newsletters when I am involved in networking groups. "Massage Marketing" puts out some great newsletters you can customize to your business…Continue

The saga of the now-defunct IMA (International Massage Association) continues. Back in July, Will Green, owner/founder of IMA, basically admitted to sabotaging his own company by failing to turn over $600,000
in insurance premiums paid by massage therapists to the insurance
Markel, a respectable insurance company who had been underwriting IMA’s policies since Feb 1, 2008, discontinued writing policies for IMA on April 6, 2010 due to Green’s non-payment of premiums.…Continue

I've just had my most successful year so far with people suffering chronic pain. Thoracic outlet syndrome 9yrs , Migraine 20 yrs , Back Pain 8 yrs and many more.
I wish to state how important your clients first visit is, and how you might attempt to set yourself apart from "other professionals " in the eyes of your new client.
You must allocate extra time to their first visit to enable them to relax and tell you everything thats on their minds in…

He really doesn't look impressive yet!
But he's curious and wants to understand what all this "research talk" is all about... so he's going to study and grow and see if he can convince others to do the same.
He heard a real important lady, named Ruth Werner, is going to talk about him on July 13, 2011 at Western Carolina University. He wants everyone to come see Ruth and…Continue
