The Massachusetts Episode
Allissa Haines is on the podcast in my ongoing effort to chat with a fellow massage therapist from every state! She joins me from her home state in Massachusetts where she had over 15 years of experience as an LMT. Allissa is also a columnist for Massage & Bodywork Magazine and the co-founder of The Massage Business Blueprint, an online resource and community for massage and bodywork professionals. Along with her co-founder Michael Reynolds, she hosts a podcast of the same name with nearly 300 episodes helping bodywork professionals navigate business and marketing.
