Member Spotlight: Amanda Mitchell

Today's member spotlight is Amanda Mitchell, owner of Soothing Palms Massage in Wautoma, Wisconsin.

Q: What inspired you to be a massage therapist?

A: What inspired me to be a massage therapist was my passion for helping people, and after receiving my first massage in 2007. I knew I wanted to get into a career that was not stressful, something that I could use to help people, and make them feel good!

Q: How long have you been doing massage?

A: I've been a massage therapist for over 5 years.

Q: What is your favorite thing about being an MT?

A: My favorite thing is seeing physical change in a client's muscles, oftentimes after they have exhausted every other avenue to help themselves heal; and seeing a skeptical first timer turn into a regular client! :)

Q: What do you feel is the most challenging issue for massage therapists?

A: The biggest challenge is getting people to know you exist.  It has taken me years to get my name out to just the county I live in. People are finally starting to say "Oh I've heard about you, so and so told me they had a great massage from you".

Q: What advice would you give to other MT’s to help build their business?

A: My advice to help build business is don't say no to a new opportunity and get your business online if you aren't already. My number one way to get people to come to you and know you are there to help, is to get out in front of an audience - in my case vendor expo's. Give them a chair massage and offer a special to entice them to book a full appointment with you. This has been working for me for 2 years now.
