Dear Fellow Massage Therapist,
If you are experiencing the pains that come with trying to
start and grow your massage practice, you are not alone. In fact,
according to a recent study by the American Massage Therapy Association
(AMTA), the average U.S. massage therapist made
only about $19,000 last year.
Itís tough to make a living or support a family on so little money. I
know this first hand because I was once a struggling massage therapist,
Hi, my name is Michael Humphreys and I started my massage practice in
1993 on a measly $100 budget. Why so little? Because I was flat broke.
In fact, I was so financially strapped that a close friend of my family
actually paid the fee for me so I could take the national certification
exam for massage therapy. I needed to pass that exam so that I could rent
the office space in the local community center.
(You see, they were only allowing "certified" therapists. So I really
needed to pass that exam. Thank goodness for friends!)
Now, given the fact that I had barely any money to pass the exam, the
next and most obvious challenge was, how in the heck would I find my
clients? How could I even afford any kind o marketing or advertising to
find them? Well, here's...
How I Started My Massage Practice
With Only Pennies In
First, I got a free ad in the community center newsletter, got some
business cards printed up, and with a little help from my mother created a
sign for my office door that would hold my business cards and list my
"OK," I thought to myself. "I'm ready to roll." Simple, right?
Well, I waited by the phoneÖ and waitedÖ and waited some more. And
then... Nothing. Not a single peep. It was disheartening. I felt I wasn't
getting anywhere. In fact, I almost felt like giving up.
But then, after two long weeks of waiting, I got my very first
Fast-forward almost 4 years. It was August 1997. Was I any better? Was
I running a busy practice? Not really. I was still struggling as a
massage therapist, only able to maintain a part-time practice while I
worked in the physical therapy field.
(I was merely eking out a few dollars out of my massage therapy
practice, so I had no choice but to work full-time to pay the bills.)
All the glory I was told about the massage therapy business seemed more
and more far away at this point. I was getting so disenchanted that
thoughts of throwing in the towel started creeping into my mind.
And then, just when I thought I hit rock-bottom, it got worse. A whole
After 4 Loyal Years Of Working
In My Full-Time Job...
I Got Fired!
I never thought that it could happen.
I was shocked and dismayed. I was also really hurt and angry. I had
been with the physical therapy clinic for over 4 years. I really needed
that job to survive! I knew it was impossible for me to live on the paltry
part-time massage therapy income I was making.
But you see, it was actually the best thing that could ever happened
Let me explain.
After that experience, I decided I never wanted to work for someone
else ever again. I got serious about learning how to grow my
massage practice -- and grow it fast!
I knew that the only way was to grow my business. But since it was just
a small part-time business on the side, I had to kick it up a few notches.
I had to find more clients. A lot more, if I were to completely replace my
newly lost full-time income.
I wasn't easy, but within three months, I was seeing 12-15 clients per
week. And within 6 months, I had grown my business to 25-30 appointments
In fact, I got so busy that some of my clients started asking me
for recommendations for a another therapist who could work on their
spouses, because I didnít have any openings to offer! (And I literally
referred them to my competitors. That's how busy I was! Wouldn't that be a
nice problem to have?)
So I started working on opening up my own massage therapy center.
Finally, in 1999, I did just that. I owned and operated that massage
therapy center for over 6 years, even expanding and moving it to a bigger
location during that time.
I was extremely successful. Things were moving along beautifully. I
finally reached the kind of success I only dreamed of when I first started
out part-time. But then...
In 2005, I Did Something So Daring...
So Risky... That
It Shocked Everyone!
You see, at the height of my success, I shut my business
Hold on, let me backup a bit.
You see, by 2005, I had grown tired of 90-hour work weeks and the daily
rigors of owning a massage therapy center.
I was managing a staff of 7 additional therapists and 2 part-time
office staff, plus creating all of the advertising and marketing that
generated the massage therapy sales. I was focusing on managing the center
rather than being a therapist myself.
But in spite of that, I was still the most requested massage therapist
in the center!
On top of all that, as co-author of the book, "Help Your
MASSAGE Practice," I was also being bombarded by many requests
for business coaching and speaking appearances.
I loved the limelight. And I loved my business, too. But above all, I
wanted more time to spend with my friends and family.
So I did the unthinkable: I made a very unpopular decision --
and took a huge risk. You see, I gave my staff 2 weeks notice, closed the
massage center completely down, and went back into private practice.
How could I do something so dangerous so
Now, I donít mean to sound like Iím bragging, but I had the ability to
do this easily for several reasons. Sure, I had a solid core of loyal
massage clients who were willing to follow me practically anywhere.
But My Biggest Assets Weren't
My Clients... They Were
That Allowed Me To Generate Them!
You see, I had an even bigger competitive edge:
Proven massage-marketing pieces that really
These pieces include articles, coupons, ads, salesletters, tracking
tools, yellow page ads, referral systems, gift certificates, checklists,
you name it. Everything I personally created, tested and knew for a fact
that they worked.
Heck, they worked so incredibly well, that they were the reason why it
was so easy for me to shut down my massage therapy center without giving
it any second thought.
With this edge, I knew that I could replace any client who chose
not to follow me into my private practice. Unlike when I first started
out, I didn't have to wait 2 long weeks for one booking request. I
literally could create tons of new clients...
... Virtually on demand!
You see, I started creating my own ads and marketing pieces right from
the beginning. Itís something Iíve always enjoyed, and I was eager to test
and try every single piece of marketing advice I ever read or heard
After a few years, I started writing down and tracking all of the
Were all my pieces successful? No. So I continually tested, tweaked and
refined them. I then dumped the duds, and kept the winners that worked
What If You Could Get Your Hands On
Those Winners For
Your Own Practice?
Think about it:
No need to create them all from scratch, on your
No need for any kind of marketing skill or
No need to test and tweak them, taking your
concentration away from doing what you love to do. (And that is working
as a massage therapist. Right?)
No need to spend tons of money and wasting a lot of
time trying them all out, guessing which ones will work for you. (This
is how much time and money you would save! All the gruntwork and
guesswork have already been done for you.)
Why is this important?
Because if you're like me, you want to do what you do best. And that's
doing massage. That's working in your practice and serving your clients.
It's not writing ads, spending all your time trying to find clients or
waiting for clients to call you.
In the advertising and marketing worlds, your response rate is
In fact, many marketing experts have said that any ad or marketing
piece that generates just a 2% response rate is normally
considered to be a success.
Here's what that means in the real world...
If too few people respond to your ad, you lose the money you
On the flip side, if your ad is so powerful that too many people
respond, you will probably anger lots of new potential clients because you
canít handle all of the calls or appointment requests. (A good problem to
For example, a good friend of mine experienced this after a newspaper
article on his solo fitness practice, which produced over 200 phone calls
in less than 4 days!
It became so overwhelming that he couldnít return all of the
calls in time, and eventually he stopped trying to return calls.
The question is, do you know what kind of article you need to write to
experience this kind of response? Do you know how and where to spend your
money that will produce the best bang for your marketing buck? Well...
When You Donít Have A Lot
Of Marketing Money To Begin
You Canít Afford To Lose Any Of It.
When you are an individual massage therapist or a small massage center,
you need your massage marketing to do 2 things:
- It needs to be profitable, almost
immediately. In fact, if you spend $50 to send out a marketing
campaign, chances are you need to make that $50 back before the check
you wrote gets back to your bank!
- It needs to be easily managed and
controlled by you. You want to be able to control how many
people will respond to it, especially if you are an individual massage
therapist. For example, if you can only fit 5 new massage clients into
your schedule in the next week, you donít want 200 new prospects calling
you for an appointment pronto!
These are the 2 things I focus on when I teach eager and aspiring
As a massage practice-building
expert, I write a monthly massage marketing and practice building
newsletter that hundreds of massage therapists eagerly read when
it hits their email inboxes.
One of the most frequent requests I get from those loyal readers is,
ďHow can I get my hands on marketing pieces like those you use in your
At first, I was leery about "letting go" of
these pieces. Why? Because it took a lot of "blood, sweat and tears" (and
a ton of dollars, too!) to create these winning tools. They were, for the
longest time, my "secret weapons."
And I was not ready to pass them around and
let my secrets out.
But after thinking about it, I realized
something important: many aspiring massage therapists like you are exactly
were I was when I first started out. So I know how tough it can be. I've
been there. And after losing my job, I know how it was a struggle.
So I want to help you. I want you to achieve
the same kind of success I was blessed with. I hate seeing new therapists
struggle like I did.
That's why, after years of looking for
proven massage marketing that really works, now's your chance to grab my
"secret weapons" you can duplicate in your own practice...
"Instant Massage Marketing
My "Fill-In-The-Blanks," Plug-And-Go
Practice-Boosting Marketing Toolkit
When I decided to put together "Instant Massage Marketing", I wasnít
sure where to begin. Heck, just one massage marketing folder on my office
computer had over 400 files in it! (But don't worry, I've cut it down to
the best of the best for you.)
There were massage marketing articles, ads, tracking forms, and much
more I had written over the years, for both my private practice and the
massage therapy center.
So, I carefully cherrypicked some of my proven winners:
Only the best ads and marketing pieces that pulled at least a 2%
response rate. In fact, most of these 13 pieces did even
better than 2% for my business!
I put them together in a special package that is designed for a single
massage therapist. Simply pick the ad or marketing piece you need from
Instant Massage Marketing, add your name and contact information, and
you're ready to go!
It's that easy.
Why is this important?
- You donít have to take the time to write any
massage marketing or hire writers to do it all, because Iíve
already done it for you.
- You donít need to spend any of your hard-earned
money testing any of these marketing pieces, because Iíve
already spent my money and a lot of time to test every part of "Instant
Massage Marketing". Everything is 100% proven!
- You can focus on doing what you really love:
delivering a great massage that makes a difference for your clients
(rather than the rigors of running and managing a business, trying to
figure out where your next client is coming from.)

What Kind of Money Have I Spent To Create
My Own Successful Massage Marketing?
Iíve spent years studying and learning how to write marketing and ads
that are profitable.
I even purchased a famous direct marketing guruís boot camp program for
$2000 to learn many of the techniques that you will never find in a $10
marketing book at your local bookstore.
Iíve spent thousands of dollars testing my marketing and advertising
just to create my own successful massage marketing.
Why Then Would I Sell Something As Valuable As "Instant
When I see how many massage therapists struggle to earn a living doing
massage therapy, it almost breaks my heart. It doesnít have to be this
way, yet many successful massage therapists donít offer much help beyond
generic statements like ďWord of Mouth is really importantĒ.
Letís face it: Iím an already established massage
therapist with a full-time massage practice. Chances are, you donít even
work or live in the same area that my massage practice is located. So itís
not like I have to worry about you using my marketing to try to steal
clients from me. Honestly, clients will always choose where they want to
go for massage.
The truth is, like most massage therapists, I love helping people. And
offering something as valuable as "Instant Massage Marketing" is one way I
can help my fellow massage therapists do what they love: help other people
in need too.
