Veteran massage therapist Mary Davis has been there and offers this advice: be patient with the process. "Growth takes not only outstanding customer service skills, but also time. Be patient with yourself and your practice. I was very fortunate to have a mentor when I was just getting started in massage who told me, 'It's called a practice for a reason. Just keep working at it.' "Those fi rst few years are about building the foundation of your practice and your business. Creating a successful massage business isn't diffi cult, but it does take commitment and perseverance. Show up, both physically and mentally, work hard, give your clients your best, and genuinely care about the people on your massage table. If you do these things, your business can only thrive."
