This course should be essential for anyone training to become a massage therapist. Whether self-employed or an employee, this textbook presents all you need to know about the business side of massage. I wish I had taken the course 15 years ago, before I became licensed; this material provides a solid foundation to build a successful practice. I thoroughly enjoyed this course, and all I learned will be helpful in running my business, especially the sections on promotions and advertising. It's full of great ideas and marketing strategies useful for building up clientele to secure improved financial success.

Informative course material and I very much enjoyed the content, however, this is not state specific and as such there are variances. Overall is a good eye opener for those setting out in the business of massage therapy. I should've taken this straight after graduation rather than wait for years afterwards. Thank you.

I thought the book was well organized and the presentation was nicely done. It was set up in a way to keep your interest. I started putting sticky tabs and writing notes to myself to return to specific pages in the future. Included in the book were a wide range of personal stories from other therapists, suggested readings in each chapter, an index, and a glossary.
