Truthfully, the median income for 마사지 therapists is below $50,000 per year. Many earn much less than this. This is predominantly because many choose to work part time. But what about the entrepreneur who wants a full time massage therapy business and wishes to make a 6 figure income?
How To Make Six Figures From Your Massage Therapist Business
Well most massage therapists have a base rate that equates to around a dollar per minute, so an hour massage would be around $60. Mind you, I’ve seen much higher, in 2002 I stayed at an upmarket resort in Fiji that charged $250 USD per hour for a massage! But let’s use $60 per hour for this example.
6 x 1 hour massage per day, 6 days per week, 48 weeks per year. This is certainly ‘do-able’. 2 treatments in the morning, 4 in the afternoon / evening, 6 days per week with 1 month off per year for holiday, and you’re making a 6 figure income. $103,680 to be exact.
While a business like this would certainly take time to establish, it’s absolutely achievable. This leads us to 2 further questions:
1. How to make six figures in your massage therapy business while working less than this?
2. For the very ambitious – how to make even MORE than this in your massage therapist business?
1 – How To Work Less And STILL Make Six Figures In Your Massage Therapy Business?
While this work load would not be an issue for some, for others, the thought of averaging 6 x 1 hour massages per day, 6 days per week is a bit too much for their liking. So to make the same amount while working less, it’s simple, substitute some of your massage revenue with a different kind of revenue that you can still make in your massage business.
For example, let’s say you want to do 6 less massages per week. Instead of 6 per day, you want to average 5 per day. Or maybe you want to work 5 days per week rather than 6. You need to find a substitute revenue earner to bring in $360 per week.
The easiest way, sell products, here are some ideas:
· Massage oils
· Massage books
· Massage videos
· Massage pillows and rollers
· Yoga and Pilates products
· Massage novelty products – like mugs and t-shirts
You can also run a course once per month teaching massage for home use. You can specialise in a particular massage niche like:
· Face and scalp massage
· Back, neck and shoulder massage
· Couples massage
· Massage for infants
If you have just 10 people paying $200 for an all day, or weekend course, that’s $2000.
