I used to switch back and force between different utility companies because after the introductory period was over, the price kept going up. Even if I stick with them for several years, there’s no benefit to continuing their services. Most companies are so eager to get new customers, but there’s no effort to keep regular customers happy. It is sad.
So from the beginning of my business, I wanted to show our appreciation for regular customers. I see many massage therapists are charging a lot, and I understand that because massage therapy is labor-intensive and takes excellent skills for therapeutic massage. My desire for the loyalty program is so more people can use my services comfortably, and they can come more frequently to improve their health. Our membership is not to get new customers with discounts but to award our regular customers and further help them. After all, regular customers are the backbone of our business. We see our relationship with you as long term so that we won’t trick you into anything. If you have silver membership but happened to come more than 12 times, you can upgrade to gold membership. And if you have gold membership but didn’t reach 12 times, we’d adjust you to silver membership for next year.
After you fulfilled twelve one hour sessions, you are eligible to become a VIP member. These discounts cannot be combined with other discounts or offers.
VIP Gold Membership Discount: You will get $10 off 60-min session and $15 off 90-min session as long as you have 12 sessions a year.
VIP Silver Membership Discount: If you can’t come 12 times a year, you can get $5 off 60-min session, and $10 off 90-min session as long as you have 6 sessions a year.
We don’t. The reason is that we want to focus on our treatment and provide the best services for you. When we bring in the insurance companies to our practice, they limit our service according to their agenda and regulation, and they often don’t cover our fee well. Massage therapy is a labor-intensive service with a high demand for skills. We spend a significant amount of time on continuing education and invest in tools and equipment. $45 from the insurance company cannot even cover our expenses unless we take ten clients a day! We suggest that you go to the physical therapists, chiropractors, or take yoga classes if our fee is too much for you. Massage therapy is not the only way to address your issues. But some massage therapists take insurance, so go ahead and search for them, if you choose to do so.
I want to bring you back to why you want to get a massage. I see people often get carried away by the idea that they must find a place where they can use insurance and forgot about the very reason why they want to see a massage therapist – you want to get better, right?
Our commitment is that we spend time to educate you on how you can adjust your lifestyle, and we share our knowledge of how you can release muscle tension and balance your life so you can make improvements quickly and learn to do most of the part by yourself.
I happened to hear the conversation between my friends talking about their friend with a serious back issue and one thing one of them said shocked me. She confidently stated, “When you have a back issue, you need to have surgery.” Of course, this statement is out of the context and it doesn’t mean whoever has back issue need to rush to get surgery. And she is not a doctor. I think what she meant was when you have a serious back issue, eventually, the solution is the surgery. I was surprised to realize that she believes that the solution to the back issue is surgery!
I understand where she is coming from. If you are pretty much used to use medical services every time you have some physical issues, that’s the natural step you would take, just like you ask the landscapers to mow the lawn and mechanics to fix your car. But when it comes to the human body, it is not that straight forward. First of all, all the back issues are not the same. The causes can vary and every human is not the same.
The back problems are often caused by postural issues, immobility, overuse, injuries or combinations of them. On top of them, different muscles are involved but there are no muscle doctors so when doctors look at your back issue, they mostly ignore the muscles, send you to MRI and tell you that you have herniated disks. Disk issues are the result and not the cause. Unless you release your tight shortened muscles or release the vertebral joints that are stuck, and correct your postural issues, your problem won’t go away.
I can’t fix your disk issue but I can help you find your postural issue, muscle imbalance, and the root cause that is creating the issue. If you are having some back issues and want to be educated about it, please contact us! You can come to my office and I can help you!
