About Alyson Laurel, LMT, BS, Contributor

After graduating from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in psychology and biology, I considered becoming a PT but decided to help people by becoming a Massage Therapist.

That was nearly 30 years ago and I've never looked back! 

Admittedly, I struggled in practice in ways that you might too. Like not feeling the professional respect and credibility we deserve, especially considering how many people we help feel better.

I suffered from not having the client management skills that generate better client retention and practice success that aren't taught in massage schools or elsewhere for that matter.  

Then I met Michael Koplen, a long time Massage Therapist and a DC, through other Massage Therapists here in town who spoke highly of their professional relationship with him.

He had a super successful massage practice and ran the Denver Massage Center, then expanded his education by going to Chiropractic college. He spent several more years with a client-management group which empowered him with the skills to create one of the most successful chiropractic practices in the nation (and receive a national chiropractor of the year award) ––so he knew the client care and practice success procedures I'd been looking for, which are found in the books and courses he developed for Massage Therapists.

I can honestly tell you that if you want to manage your clients' care the way true professionals do and have a far more successful practice⎯⎯you don't want to miss out on letting these books and courses teach you how to do it!
