Reaching Out to Massage Clients During the Holidays

Email icon on a smartphone or other device.

Connecting with clients during the holiday season has become a customary part of most MTs’ annual marketing plans. But that doesn’t mean your client communications this time of year have to be a hard sell. Showing an authentic interest in your clients’ well-being and offering solutions to their problems might be just as profitably effective as promoting that next great holiday special.

Self-Care Check-In

Haven’t heard from a client in a few months? The holidays offer a timely opportunity for you to do a check-in, express your appreciation for their business, and remind them of the value of self-care (especially this time of year). December is notorious for blinding people to their self-care needs, so help clients put it front of mind.

Biz Tip: Consider offering later hours throughout December to accommodate everyone’s crazy holiday schedules and to-do lists.

ABMP’s Lymph Talk Series

Lymph Talk is a series of conversations ABMP Director of Professional Education Kristin Coverly had with practitioners who specialize in the manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) modality. These talks were recorded in conjunction with the October 25, 2022, free, online ABMP CE Summit on Lymph. Kristin says, “My hope is that these conversations increase the awareness of MLD and demonstrate how effective it can be with different populations so massage therapists and bodyworkers are inspired to learn more about this gentle, yet powerful modality!”
