When you started learning massage and holistic therapies, you were so pleased to be doing something that would always be useful – no matter what was going on in the world. You needed nothing more than a pair of hands and you could help people in profound ways.
We’ve recently learned that as hands-on therapists, having just one source of revenue makes us very vulnerable. During these Covid times, we are having to deal with lock-downs, quarantines, client cancellations, seeing less clients in a day – all of which are having a huge impact on our ability to earn a living.
We need to see this situation as a wake-up call for us all. Even before Covid, having only a hands-on practice was always a risky position to be in. What if you injure yourself or are ill? Right now our therapy business feels exposed and vulnerable. And really, it always has been – we just didn’t acknowledge it.
We all need to find more effective ways of working; ways to diversify, build different income streams and future-proof and Covid-proof our business.
So the question is – HOW do you do that?
How can you keep being a therapist; offering your expertise and caring heart to people who need your services more than ever?
…And also – let’s be real about this – how can you keep making money?
The obvious answer is to start offering your services online -whether that’s through one to one sessions via Zoom/Skype – or by selling online courses, programmes, memberships or workshops to your clients.
In these new times, more people than ever are consuming online content. And many of these people need your help to stay healthy and well – emotionally as well as physically.
If you step up and take this opportunity,
you will prosper even when many other therapists will be struggling.
And something else you might not have considered before – working online means you free yourself up to work whenever and wherever you like!
“Which is all very well”, you say, “but WHAT action should I take? and HOW do I take it?” How do you go from being a seasoned hands-on therapist to a newbie online entrepreneur?
I’m a therapist just like you and I’ve spent the last three years building online training, workshops and coaching for my school, Orchid Massage Academy. I know exactly what it takes to move from a hands-on therapy practice to an online business.
And I understand where many of the problems and challenges lie because I have worked with scores of therapists to help them take their work online too.
You don’t need a ton of money to get started. You don’t even need a huge client base. And you certainly don’t need to be massively tech savvy. You just need some imagination, to be adaptable and willing to learn some new marketing techniques.
As for WHAT actions to take and HOW, WHEN and WHERE to take them. I’ve developed a range of resources to help you.
If you’re got this far, it’s because you are ready for another way of working. One that can bring you immense freedom, whilst still earning you money and allowing you to helping people.
But you need help to do it. Whether you’d like suggestions around your strategy, or you need a step-by-step guide, I can help you gather the pieces together to get your expertise online, to help you have a further- reaching impact, make more money and have a business that you feel excited and passionate about again.
You don’t need to be struggling to piece things together on your own – you need someone in your corner who’s already done the work, who can give you individualised support, encouragement and strategy.
