National Massage Therapy Awareness Week is in NC

NC ProclamationNational Massage Therapy Awareness Week is happening October 25-31, 2015. As in the past, I have gotten official proclamations from Pat McCrory, the Governor of North Carolina and Nancy Vaughan, the Mayor of Greensboro, NC. This year I was also able to get them from the mayors of High Point, NC and Burlington, NC. I actually sent requests to about 10 different municipalities in my area but have (so far) only received these.

Thanks!

There’s still time to spread the word about the awesomeness, efficacy and legitimacy of Massage Therapy as a healing art and profession. Thank you for making the effort to do so!

I Just Got a 5 Star Review – Why You Need to Share the Good News

yelpI just got a 5 Star Review on Yelp:-)

It’s from a brand new massage client that I met at my last triathlon. You can read about that here and I’ll share more in a future article on how I used that event to market my wellness center/spa.

For now, here’s the review:

“Felicia helped me recover from driving aches and pains. one hour made all the difference in my life. She gave me active stretches to do for homework. I feel 100% better after my massage. Thank you!”  ~ Jane

As soon as I saw it, I shared it on Facebook. Besides the fact that seeing this first thing made my day, I wanted to share this review because I have two open appointments tomorrow I’d like to fill. Reading a review like this is likely to help possible new clients to try me as well as to remind current clients why they like me. If also affirms in people’s minds that I am good at what I do and that even if today’s not the day, I am the person they’ll call when they need a massage.

Tooting your own horn is a great way to promote yourself and is one more way of “showing up” when others won’t. Don’t be afraid to share your accomplishments, big and small. Your clients and friends will be proud of you and often both you and your bank account will feel good when you do it.
