Do you know that the biggest reason for our students to not start a massage course is money?

We get daily emails from people who love to study massage, but they email us that they don’t have money. So, therefore, I just thought to give you some inspirational ideas for you if you are like many of our students that have the same problem: They love to take a course, but they are struggling with the money.

So hereby some ideas:

  1. Are you unemployed?

In the Netherlands, we have the UWV, but maybe in your own country, you have another kind of organization. Sometimes it is the local community office, sometimes it is an office related to the tax office. It depends on the country. Ask your employment coach to fund your study. Explain your employment coach that you can work as a massage therapist after following the massage program, so you are no longer depended on unemployment funds.

 

  1. Are you employed?

Many of our students ask their bosses to pay their massage programs. Of course, it depends on where you work. But a lot of companies have money to pay their employees courses. Or maybe you want to change your career, even then a lot of companies have money to help you retrain for another profession.

 

  1. Crowdfunding!

We found this idea that a student had a couple of years ago, amazing. She wanted to do the Thai yoga massage level 1 course with us but did not have any money. She then emailed all her friends, family and colleagues to say that she wanted to do a massage course and that she had massage vouchers for sale. She basically told everyone: Normally a good massage treatment is about 60 to 75 euro for 1 hour. How about if you buy a massage voucher from me now, for only 20 euro and I will give you the massage after I finish my massage course.

 

Immediate clients after the course

It was so amazing, she got so much response that she was able to enroll in level 1 and also in the level 2 massage course directly without paying herself for the course. After the courses, she gave all the people that bought her voucher a massage and they loved it so much, many of them came back and paid the full price she asked. So she immediately had clients the day she finished the courses.

 

So how about this? If you have more ideas let us know. And if you need assistance, let us know as well, we are happy to help.

Have a lovely day and we are looking forward to seeing you in our class.

Create a healthy day!

Are you living in the Netherlands? Or planning to live in the Netherlands?

Then… this is for you!

The year 2019 is the last year in which you still can deduct your study costs for tax purposes.

 

This is for everyone, even if you don’t have a business yet.

Or if you are not yet registered at the tax office, you can still deduct your study costs and thus save money. If you are already a registered masseur, you can also still have this benefit.

What to do? You have to start in 2019

The only rule is, you have to start your study this year, in 2019!

So if you are thinking about taking a massage course, this would be the best time to start! So if you want to follow a study in 2020, you can probably do so in 2019 and thus bring start with the study earlier, with tax deductions.

 

No time?

Don’t you have time to start a course in 2020? You can consider starting a massage course anyway, even if you don’t have time.

Our courses are online as well, so you can enroll this year and start when the time is right for you.

For the Dutch tax office, it matters when you enroll. And that is… you must enroll in 2018 or 2019 in order to deduct the study costs for your taxes.

The massage courses at ITM Thai Hand Amsterdam are registered at the CRKBO (Register for Short Professional Education), so, therefore, acknowledged as a professional school where study costs can be deducted.

Are you an employee?

Are you working as an employee? You can also ask your employer/boss to pay for your massage study. Many of our students have done that.

Questions?

If you have any questions, please email us to info@thai-hand.com and we can help you from there!

Create a healthy day!

The techniques learnt in this program are used in hospitals in Asia to improve health, reduce waiting lists, eliminate drug use and often avoid surgery. The training consists of modules Abdominal Therapeutic Massage (Chi Nei Tsang), Acupressure Massage Therapy for Health (Wat Po) and Advanced Acupressure Massage Techniques to treat ailments (Wat Po).

What is Advanced Acupressure Massage Therapy?

Advanced Acupressure Massage Therapy is a treatment for various ailments, such as headaches, back pain, stress, tension (burnout), sleep problems, menstruation problems, arthritis, high blood pressure, stomach problems, tennis elbow, feeling low or depressed, constipation, sprained ankle, knee problems, neck problems, hip pain, shoulder pain etc.

Advanced Acupressure Massage Therapy is used in Asian hospitals to eliminate the need for surgery. During the first appointment, the therapist provides comprehensive information of the complaints of the client through examination and asking questions.

The therapist then gives a deep 1 to 2 hour therapeutic acupressure massage tailored to the complaints of the client. This massage is given over the clothes. The client lies on a mat or on a table. The therapist provides acupressure massage using thumbs, palms, elbows, knees and feet through the clothes, using body weight.

Massage therapy assumes that everything in our body is interconnected, also named Holistic and that the origin of the complaint may come from elsewhere in the body than from the painful area itself.

Therefore, the massage treatment is a whole body massage, starting at the feet and ending at the head. Because everyone is different and each complaint is different, a treatment plan is developed together with the client at the end of the first treatment. The number of treatments depends on the complaint and its severity. Besides dealing with complaints, the therapist focuses on the prevention of recurrence of symptoms.

Career?
