How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be the mobile spa expert?

x
I have over 16 years of experience as a mobile massage therapist, and have worked for many prestigious spas and salons in Beverly Hills CA. After years of practicing solo, in 2000 I began a network of stellar massage therapists and other spa staff through my own Mobile Spa Business, Serve the Goddess. I also run U Knead Massage, a corporate chair massage service.  And my latest venture is How to Create a Mobile Spa Business, which aims to inspire and support others interested in starting their own mobile spa around the globe.

I was voted one of the best massage therapists by Allure magazine and was featured in Massage magazine, Vibe Vixen, & Chill Out LA. Her TV & radio appearances include NBC, The Benefits of Massage, E Channel Prepping your skin for summer with sunless tanning, Discovery Channel -Relationship make over-Couples massage instruction, MTV -The X effect couples massage instruction and more!

Who are your clients?
I work with driven people who are either just graduating from massage school or beauty school and have no idea to get clients.  I also work with clients who are currently working in a spa and want to go out on their own. And finally I work with people who have their own mobile spa business and they want to expand and build their empire! My clients share something in common they don’t want to work for someone else and they want more freedom and flexibility in their schedule.
x
How are you different from other massage and spa coaches?
Well, for starters, I have a unique advantage because I’ve had the same experiences and struggles that my clients are going through. I learned the hard way and made many a mistake. It’s taken me 12 years to get where I am today. If you recall, I’ve had my own mobile spa since 2000 and I have been doing mobile massage since 1997 so I know what works.

What process do you use to start a mobile massage and spa business?
Great Question! Before we begin creating your own business, we have to do some ground work to figure out how we’re going to grow it. For this, I’ve developed a  program and wrote an eBook called “Five Steps To Owning Your Own Mobile Spa Business”.The program and eBook includes:
What Comes First In Starting Your Own Mobile Spa Business?
How to Create a Stellar Team You Can Rely On.
How to Get Clients – The Secret Formula.
Create A Service Menu That Sells And Your Clients Will Love.
How to Organize a Spa Party.

By reading the eBook and following this program, you will get all the information and support you need to succeed.  How you begin is crucial. My system will show you exactly how to start so you avoid feeling overwhelmed. Actually, it’s easier than you think, and you will earn money much more quickly with the guidance of someone who has done this before and can coach you through the process.
x
Do you have any formal education or has this all been learn-as-you-go?
Well, I like to think it’s learn as you grow but yes, I have formal education as well.
I am a registered nurse, personal fitness trainer, licensed massage therapist and I’ve had my own mobile spa since 2000.
x
What type of clients have you worked with?
I work with service based entrepreneurs and other independent professionals who are really good at what they do but they don’t know how to market themselves and they don’t know where to start. That said, the professionals’ I’ve worked with most frequently include the following:
Massage therapists
Estheticians
Nail technicians

What results can I typically expect?
All you have to do is follow the program and complete the assignments and you’ll get results. My system will show you exactly how to start so you avoid feeling overwhelmed. I also offer live support on the phone every month in the Mobile Spa Success Program to keep you focused and accountable. All calls are recorded and emailed directly to you after the call.
