Mobile massage therapy offers valuable flexibility in terms of scheduling and placement, whether it be at work, in the office, at home, or also in hotels for weary travellers, business consultants and couples on a romantic holiday.
Mobile Massage Therapy isn’t for everyone though. It is for those who want to create a memorable experience inside one’s home, hotel and/or office. The type of experience that even you the client will be questioning whether you’re in your own home. The mission is to create such an experience that one can only dream of having where they reside. It’s for those therapists who want to break out of the 4 walls & have the rewarding flexibility to bring value to our clients in the comfort of their place.
Being a Trusted Therapist
Sculpting skills that fit your character & skillset is an ongoing profession and until you absolutely immerse yourself in the craft of massage therapy itself, is when you will truely find your calling. In order for us mobile massage therapists to be able to enter a clients home, there needs to be an order of trust from the very moment you knock on that door. Here are 3 tips to help make the experience better and build a solid foundation:
- SMILE – from the moment the door opens, no matter how bad your day has been, it is time to put your game face on and get to work. You are there to serve and the energy you project from the moment the door opens will set the tone for the whole treatment.
- SHAKE HANDS & INTRODUCTION – another important gesture & sign of respect is to shake hands firmly with your client & introduce yourself. Hello my name is Jeremy & thank you for booking with us today/this evening. Absolutely looking forward to giving you the best experience (something that matches your energy & personality).
- GET TO KNOW YOUR CLIENT – whilst setting up get to know your client, feel the energy in the room & how their energy is and break the ice. A client intake form is highly recommended whether that’s online or paper, but the trick is, fill it out yourself whilst asking them the questions. You are the trusted authority, who cares a hell of a lot about them, make it known that you care & are interested in giving them the best experience ever.
Become the trusted client that everyone loves and wants to have treat them on a regular basis. Build that rapport & know your clients needs, what they love and hate, their passions, hobbies & everything in between. There’s no better feeling for a client when you can immerse yourself into your clients life for the duration that you’re in their home and make them feel amazing. Learn what works for you & grow from what doesn’t work for you. Stick to your strengths and utilise them the best you can, whilst knowing what your weaknesses are and how you can transform them into strengths too.
Become the mobile massage therapist everyone wants to see.
