In this two-part series, the co-founders of Massage Business Blueprint discuss life without therapeutic touch, crisis communication with clients, and Haines’s decision to close her practice for the time being—from speaking with her clients to her landlord to her renters.
Haines and Reynolds offer suggestions for short-term triage ideas and long-term brainstorming and goals, emergency funds, accounting basics, diversification, and developing your dream practice when you do decide to practice again.
Allissa Haines and Michael Reynolds are the wonder duo who make up Massage Business Blueprint. Haines is a practicing massage therapist of 15 years and self-described Director of Shenanigans at Massage Business Blueprint.
