Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is enjoying this warmer weather. 

My name is Dr. Marcus Alvarado, and I am a Chiropractor who practices in Highland, Illinois. I have two large rooms which I would like to have massage therapists utilize. I have practiced with massage therapists in the past, and have seen how harmonious the two work together, and how happy the patients are.

I'm looking for someone amicable with strong communication skills. There would be no rent payment.

If this interested you, please reach out to me at

I look forward to meeting you!

Hi Everyone, I work at a Chiropractor office.  If I rent space there do I need a business licence to start there?  This will be my own business?  Can I use my ABMP website with my name? Or do I have to apply for a EIN for and file with my state to say I am a business there at that address?

I rent a room for $100 a month-but no receptionist. I'm my own person. But, I am in the mountains of Montana.

Comment by Jeff Sims on January 15, 2013 at 4:13am

i've been earning commissions for the past 11 years in a chiropractor's office. last week he advised me that he now wants me to pay $3500 rent per month for 3.5 days per week, or $230 per day (8 hour day with lunch break). this seems excessive. 

i think i need some comparables and was wondering what others are paying to rent a room in a chiropractor's office with a receptionist. please help. thanks.

I am looking for an article for my website about working in a chiropractic office  clinic, positives and negatives, pay scale, etc.  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!

Just asking...  Do any of the Chiropractor's that you work with offer a health package.. such as adjustment and massage. If so how has this worked out for the business and what type of discount do you give...  Thanks Sandy..:)

The efficacy of the treatments Chiropractors provide is exponentially increased by the effects that Cupping has on the structures surrounding the vertebral column.  Unfortunately, Cupping Therapy is not within the Chiropractor's Scope of Practice to provide.  This creates and incredible opportunity for Bodyworkers.

Every Bodyworker working for, or with a Chiropractor should be using Cupping Therapy prior to and even after the Chiropractic treatments.

The International Cupping Therapy Association's 2012 Schedule is now available at  Or jump directly to the 2012 schedule here.

You will find the Contemporary Cupping Methods scheduled all over the US and several dates in Canada. 

We are offering several Advanced Cupping Techniques classes in 2012 which will be 2 days of 90% hands on - 15 different treatments for Orthopedic, Sports and Stubborn Conditions.

Are you in the greater Chicago area?
Sunday, October 16 · 9:00am - 4:00pm
Main Street Chiropractic and Wellness
6234 S. Main Street
Downers Grove, Illinois
Learn about injury prevention and ergonomics specially designed to help keep you safe while you work!

The work we do as manual therapists can be physically demanding. We often use repetitive movements, hand force, static loading and awkward postures in our work- all recognized risk factorsfor developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Our age, general health, previous injuries and other personal physical and emotional factors are additional risk factors. It is not surprising to learn that, as a result of these factors, manual therapists experience high rates of MSDs.

Join me for the Save Your Hands!® Workshop and learn how to save not only your hands, but your back, neck, shoulders and emotional well-being throughout a long, healthy career.

This class is a 6 hour class with an hour lunch. Approved for 6 CEUs by NCBTMB, FL Board of Massage, TX DSHS, and accepted by
AMTA, ABMP and other state boards.

$135 if you sign up before September 19th and $150 after. This price includes the class, all materials and the Save Your Hands book. Space is limited to 12 participants, so sign up ASAP!
