Single (practitioner) on Valentine’s Day??

How can you make the most of Valentine’s Day when you are a single bodywork practitioner??  We’re not talking about hitting bars and trying to do something you’ll almost certainly later regret. We’re talking about how to make the most of your massage practice and make Valentine’s Day a holiday that is enjoyable and profitable for you.

Well, the easiest way is to find another therapist and partner up.  Even if you don’t have the space to give couples massage in either of your studios, you can take your show out on the road and do couples massage outcalls.  If you choose to do this, make sure that you and your partner have a discussion ahead of the scheduled session to plan out pricing and timing and all things important to both of you, especially safety, so there is no confusion when you are in front of the clients.

But, if you cannot find a partner to do couple’s massage with…how can you still cash in on Valentine’s Day??  Here are a “couple” of ideas that just might work!!

First off, you could teach a partner’s massage class.  Have a couple (or several couples if you have the space) come into your studio and teach them how to give each other a hand or foot or neck massage that they can share on Valentine’s Day and all through the year!

You can offer couples spa services, like wraps and foot massage.  While one person is in the wrap, massage their partner’s feet, then switch.  You can do these with the couple in the same room with only one therapist.  It’s a win for everyone!!

Finally, you can share the love and maybe offer a discount for the day for singles or people whose partners are away. It’s a great way to make sure everyone has a special day.

So here’s to you and loving your massage practice!  Happy “Single’s Awareness Day” y’all!!
