Open a Massage School with Confidence

I talk to people every day who express an interest in opening their own massage school – but they are held back by fear. Their reasons for wanting their own massage school are many: passion for teaching; their city needs a new/better massage school; they are ready for the next career progression; they need a better retirement plan and so on. All good reasons. I want to help dispel the fear – and help you open a massage school with confidence.

When I came up with the idea to help massage therapists open their own massage school, I knew it was a great idea. However, I was also led by fear and let others opinions of me and my program sway my thinking and I held off on launching a great program.

Overcoming Fear of Failure

Over the years, I’ve been able to let go of the fear which I now understood to be Imposter Syndrome –> I wasn’t good enough and my program wasn’t worthy. Oh boy, those thoughts can just stop you in your tracks!

After I healed from my traumatic finger amputation which virtually ended my massage career, I knew my plan WAS worthy and that I did have a pathway to helping massage therapists open their own massage school.

So what changed?

Simply put, ME.

Over the years, I’ve participated in many high level mastermind groups. I’ve surrounded myself with top level entrepreneurs and I’ve learned from the best. As I shared my plans, I realized that what I am offering IS worthy and that I am not an imposter. I am creating an army of people who can help 1 million people get out of pain – and I’m doing this through many programs I’ve developed over the years.

Gene and Roy from California. Our first massage massage school owners helped during their on-site training in Olympia WA.

California, Kentucky and Washington States on board

I’ve since signed on massage school owners in California, Kentucky and Washington State. It’s exciting to help them launch their dream massage school to help people in their communities learn massage therapy. We were able to help them open a massage school with confidence.

Our done-for-you program includes EVERYTHING needed to open a massage school. We complete the application to your state, we provide curriculum (lecture notes, power points, lesson plans, quizzes and exams), we create policies and procedures based on your state requirements, we help create Standard Operating Procedures for your school.

The best part is that this is NOT A FRANCHISE. Not even close. It’s also NOT a license program. It’s a business-in-a-box program that after you are up and running and feel comfortable, we back away and let you run your school as you see fit. AND we are there for you as a resource as you need over the years. We’ve been at this school ownership thing for 10 years now, and have great tips and advice for a wide variety of situations that arise from owning a school.

You are never alone.

As I considered the fear factor, I came up with the following thoughts:

ON TAKING THE LEAP (CHANCE)

There are 2 scenarios – where do you fall?

1) Watching the altimeter as you leap with FEAR clogging the brain

2) Free falling, enjoying the thrill of the ride and the beauty on the horizon.

Here’s the thing, the more leaps we take, we become conditioned the the risk and our tolerance increases. We become accustomed to the uncomfortable feelings.

When you decide to Take the Leap – even though you are afraid, think back to a time in your life when you had a victory and tap into the emotions you felt when you succeeded.

Small successes flame the fire for future inspiration and help you push through the pain and misery all the way to SUCCESS.

If you’ve considered owning your own massage school, there has NEVER been a better time. The conditions are ripe and your community needs you.

All of these have created an certain need for more quality massage therapists who graduate from passionate school owners. The demand is there – it’s up to us to share the need and the career possibilities with our students.

Bodymechanics Institute launched to fill a need in the market

When I launched Bodymechanics Institute, I wanted to be clear that this is NOT A FRANCHISE or License Model. Primarily, I want LMTs to know that I want to help them open their school, get comfortable running their own school and then we step back and become a mentor as needed.

Our done-for-you model helps you do the hard part of opening your own massage school so you can focus on what’s important to you – your professional practice and your family.

If you want more information, send me a message or call 360.350.0015. I can’t wait to help you!

Committed to your success-

Open a Massage School

Pain points SOLVED

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Have you ever thought about how fun, rewarding, exciting, and inspiring it would be to open a massage school?  You’ve been a massage therapist for some time now, you’ve seen the education that students are receiving at other schools, and you know that you could do it better.  Maybe you’ve been thinking about this for a while now… maybe you’ve been thinking about this for years.

If you have thought about owning your own massage school, you’ve probably also thought about what a daunting task it would be.  There are so many things to consider, where would you even start?  

Pain Point #1
Like most of us, you would probably start your search by looking online.  You navigate your way to the agency in your state that approves postsecondary institutions, and then you find your way to the website for the board that oversees massage programs… and what you find is overwhelming.  You’re probably feeling pretty stressed-out just getting this far… you probably need a massage!

Pain Point #2
You see that you will need to apply to the postsecondary education approval agency in your state, and you’ll need to apply to your state massage board.  You’ll need operating procedures, a marketing plan, a course catalog and student handbook.  You’re wondering if you’ll need to be accredited (and what does that word ‘accredited’ mean anyway?!), you will be hiring and training instructors; and perhaps most daunting of all:  creating a quality curriculum that will meet your state’s educational requirements.

Pain Point #3
Those feelings of excitement and inspiration soon give way to feelings of overwhelm and defeat, and the dream stops before it has a chance to gather any potential steam to become a reality. 

But what if you had help to open a massage school?

What if you knew someone who could help you with all of those hurdles that currently seem so insurmountable?  What if you knew someone who has traversed that daunting terrain and has created a roadmap for you?  Bodymechanics Institute has that roadmap, and we know how to get you from the dream to the reality.  

Pain Points Solved…. Our System
At Bodymechanics Institute, we work with the governing agencies within your state to complete the application(s) and submit all of the required paperwork in a detailed, organized, and timely manner.  Our quality, 700-hour curriculum comes complete with lesson plans, lecture notes, power points, quizzes, exams, and syllabi – it’s all done for you!

Once your application is submitted, you’ll join us for a five day immersion training.  You’ll get to experience first-hand all that goes on behind-the-scenes in a working massage school environment.  From enrolling students to training instructors, introductory workshops to filing reports – we cover every aspect of massage school operations so that, by day five, you’re feeling confident and ready to start enrolling students for your first class of massage students.

What’s left for you to do? The honest answer is that there’s still plenty for you to do.  You’ll need to find your perfect location and design the layout for where you’re going to hold classes and clinics.  What will your office look like?  What will the view be like from your office window?  Yes, there is still plenty to do, but you’re not doing it alone.
