I am looking for an article for my website about opening a private practice or clinic and why massage therapists choose to do this. If anyone is interested in writing about this please let me know. Just need a short article-not printed somewhere else. Thanks!

Does anyone provide it to their employees?
Does anyone have it for themselves?
Does anyone have any suggestions for how to obtain adequate health insurance coverage if you've been stigmatized with a "pre-existing health condition"?

I think that about sums it up :)

I invite everyone to take a look at my most recent project, marketing your massage business using Facebook.

Over the past couple of years I've had great success building relationships online. I took this a step further with Facebook, attempting to attract massage clients using Facebooks applications.

All I can say is that it's been a huge success!

Take a peek at the information provided in the link listed below and you will get the same results I have!

Thanks for your time!
