New Program Endeavors to Educate and Inspire

By Editorial Staff

If you are a new massage therapist, massage student, or just looking for some innovative ways to recharge your business, you won't want to miss the first Successful Start Program, a free educational seminar sponsored in part by the Florida State Massage Therapy Association (FSMTA) on June 24 - the eve of the FSMTA's annual convention - at the Wyndham Palace Resort and Spa in Orlando, Florida.

The program, created by FSMTA President Michael McGillicuddy and massage marketing consultant Lynda Solien-Wolfe, was modeled after the Florida Chiropractic Association's Right Start Program, an informational seminar designed to help new chiropractors get their start.

Similar in purpose, the Successful Start Program will bring together top industry professionals to share "Tips to Kick Start a Successful Massage Practice," including leadership skills, office management, insurance billing, public relations, networking, and much more.

In addition to McGillicuddy and Solien-Wolfe, other scheduled presenters include Florida Board of Massage Therapy Executive Director Pam King, David Kent, Perry Isenberg, Vivian Madison-Mahoney, Steve Keller, Donna Buist, and Maureen Gilbert.

"I am very excited that this program will be debuting before the FSMTA convention and am committed to giving guidance to new massage therapists as they venture out into this exciting profession," said McGillicuddy.

Therapists do not have to be registered for the FSMTA convention, and no RSVP is necessary to take part in this unforgettable learning experience that will include light refreshments and raffle drawings for prizes donated by the Upledger Institute and the event's other co-sponsors, Scrip Massage and Spa Supply, and Performance Health, Inc.
