What words come to mind upon hearing HAVE NOT RECEIVED MASSAGE "relax," "relaxing," "relaxation" Tip: Existing clients will tap into their memory of a relaxation session. Effects like "relief," "stress relief," and "treatment" Tip: Focusing on what clients get out of the session can work for both audiences, but makes the most sense for those who have already had a massage. A speciļ¬c body part like "back," "muscles," or "body" Tip: Potential clients who've never had a massage may identify more with talk of sore muscles. Any negative judgment Tip: Clearly a massage session puts people at ease. How might you put someone at ease who is on the fence about getting a massage? "massage"? 63% 37% 11% 0% 30% 18% 14% 11% Send potential clients this "What to Expect from a Massage Session" video at ABMP TV
