As new therapists, it's important to get your name there.  I'd like to invite massage therapists and holistic practitioners to list their services in my directory.  The Basic listing is free.  Also, many articles about energy healing and integrative therapies.

The EXCITEMENT of being a new Massage Therapist!!  There are so many directions to choose from and which will be the best fit for you?  As you build your business, money is important.  Think about working part-time for someone else as you build your private practice.  Remember that ethically you should not take clients from your employer, but use your part-time job to hone your skills and try new ideas before you put them into your private practice.  Massage therapy is a CONSTANT learning experience.  Every day you will see the body do wonderous things to heal itself, all with a little help from you.

Dayna there is also a Aromotherpy group you can join. I am sure they have lots of inoformation and can answer some of your questions as well, if not all of them. Please continue to ask and together we all will try and find answers to help one another.

Dayna I won a Lotus Touch Aromotherapy kit at the AMC in Atlanat and I love it, alos I did purchase some Loving Scents and they are really nice as well. You can always check out Massage Warehouse for a variety of oil selections. I hope this gets you on your way.
