"Starting your career as a massage therapist just got easier! If there had been such a valuable handbook when I was starting out 17 years ago, I would have saved precious time and gained serious advantage over my competition. If this handy book isn't part of every beginning therapist's schoolbag, then those who do get it will be way ahead of the game. I had to laugh out loud many times as I read the book and recognized some silly thing I did years ago or how I could have handled a situation better if I'd known beforehand what to expect. This is a savvy, well-written, easy to implement manual with valuable insights and excellent direction to help you do the right thing the first time, saving you valuable months - even years - to become the best Massage Therapist you can be." Leslie Z. Hollingsworth CMT & Proprietor of San Francisco Massage Supply
