The Joy of Reopening My Massage Business

I had forgotten how busy the massage business would make me! But has been so worth it. So many of my former clients have been booking with me and so many more are asking when they can book! I’m overwhelmed…with gratitude. Thank you everyone. I look forward to building lasting, healing relationships.

Of Booking Calendars and Other (Re)Start Up Issues.

It has been a hectic few weeks over here at Rob Hodgins Calm. And it has been fulfilling. Former clients and new friends had been asking if I’d ever get back into massage. At first my response was a firm “No”. I have always made it a policy to never reopen a door once I …

Anyways, for whatever it’s worth, I’ll be applying loads of what I got from my foray out of the safe confines of the massage room and into the “real” world to my practice. Why …

Why Wait For Summer?

I have been meaning to change my price for massages for some time now. I’m seeing that most places are increasing their prices. This bothers me to no end because it seems that they’re trying to recover the losses they got hit with during the pandemic by extracting more from their loyal clients. I think …

Win, win, win!

Well, I have to say I’m pleased. Ecstatic might be a better word for it. The booking/scheduling calendar has proven itself. Thank you Booking Calendar for this no cost plugin. I am tempted to explore what the “paid for” version offers. Perhaps down the road. The $79.95 morning massages are proving popular! This makes me …
