One Year to a Successful Massage Therapy Practice 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This is a inspiring book for anybody going into the massage business or anybody who's massage business needs a bit of a boost. It is well written and well organized into step-by-step chapters, short enough to digest in limited time segments. The lady knows what she is talking about and is not afraid of self-promotion. It gave me confidence to get going.
