Do you need a massage therapist business plan? Massage therapy is a growing industry in every metropolitan market in the country, as well as many smaller towns. This is due to the relatively minor overhead involved with this type of venture. It is also relatively simple for a recent graduate of a masseuse/masseur school to begin a business. A massage therapist business often involves only one proprietor and a room that is leased. Many massage therapists include associational products with their business, include oils and lotions, but many others focus entirely on techniques, including shiatsu, deep tissue massage, and acupressure. It depends on the skill set of the provider in question.
Furthermore, massage therapists sometimes create partnerships with other "holistic" practitioners like acupuncturists or naturopaths. This can help with leasing costs, marketing, miscellaneous start-up expenses, and ongoing costs. There are, however, some things to keep in mind, including the following:
• Marketing expenses per month
• Central location
• Differentiating yourself
