According to this analysis, the massage services industry brings in $12 Billion per year and growing at an annual rate of 4.9%. In the present, growing economy, people have more and more money to spend on services like massage therapy. Now that many individual and corporate health care plans include massages, the customer base for massage services has increased, meaning this is the perfect time for massage therapists to combine their passion for health with their entrepreneurial spirit. If you’re considering starting your own massage therapy business, there are some things to consider:
1. What Will You Offer?
The most important first step is defining your services, practices, mission statement, and financials in a business plan. Will you be a mobile massage service that comes to customers’ location or will you operate out of your own establishment? Try to make the massage experience something uniquely your own, something that sets your services apart from the others and keeps people coming back. If you don’t know how to create a business plan, don’t fret, there’s plenty of material online to help.
2. Get the Word Out!
Once you’ve laid out a business plan, it’s time to think about how you’ll find customers and how they’ll find you. For a brick-and-mortar location, make sure to connect your business with Google Maps for increased visibility. The process is simple, just follow this guide to get started. Take advantage of social media outlets like Facebook and Yelp which allow your customers to rate your massage services. First things first, you need a good, catchy, creative massage business name that speaks to your brand. Here’s some good names we found:

‘Massage’ interest over time:
The truth is, naming a business can be frustrating and downright time consuming…
Your company name is important, there’s no doubt about that, but it’s really something you need to ‘get out of the way’ so you can focus on the nuts and bolts of the business. So the question is…
“How do these companies get such good names?”
One option is hiring a ‘boutique’ branding agency to handle this critical step, and this does NOT come cheap. Some of these branding agencies charge as much as $100,000 for a brand that SELLS tons of product…
Does it work?
Of course it does, but for a small business with a careful eye on its cash flow, dumping tens of thousands of dollars for a swanky agency to sit back in their plush offices and promise you the next Google could spell disaster.
This is what they WANT you to think:
“Our branding agency charges a lot because what we do is incredibly difficult.”
It couldn’t be further from the truth, and the truth is that there are a core set of branding principles that can be reliably and affordably applied to ANY branding effort…
…and Branditory has done it for thousands of businesses, for every industry imaginable, in over 20 different countries, for just $97…
You name it, we’ve named it. The names we come up with are just as good (we think a little better) as anything a high priced agency could provide.
This unbeatable price comes with unlimited revisions and optional logo design for just $70.
