Handcrafted Therapy Podcast: A Podcast for Massage Therapists

Sep 13, 2022

As massage therapists, many of us are limited in the number of clients we can see in one day. If we work too much, we risk burnout or even worse – injury. So how as a massage therapist can you earn additional income? 

In this episode, Julie is joined by Peggy Lamb LMT, BCTMB to discuss how massage therapists can extra money through passive income streams. 

Peggy has practiced massage since 1986 and is nationally certified. She currently owns a private massage and movement therapy business, where she practices when she's not teaching. Peggy received her initial training at the New Mexico Academy of Massage and Advanced Healing Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and at Wellness Skills, Inc., in Dallas, Texas. She taught clinical anatomy and physiology, Trigger Point therapy and Swedish technique at Wellness Skills, Inc., in Dallas and at Texas Healing Arts Institute in Austin. 

In this episode, Julie and Peggy discuss: 

  • How to create mentor relationships with successful business owners 
  • Why do massage therapists need to look at additional ways to earn income
  • What passive streams of income can massage therapists use
  • How does affiliate marketing work
  • Ways to talk to your clients about non-therapy offerings 
  • The easiest way to use technology when offering additional non-therapy services to your clients 
  • How to shift your mindset when incorporating passive income into your business

More About Peggy Lamb LMT, BCTMB, and her Massage Publication Practice 

Peggy Lamb will tell you she is a massage therapist. She is a massage therapist, but she is so much more than that. When Peggy confronts a problem, she doesn't just solve the problem for herself. She will solve the problem for others, and try to ensure that the problem isn't a problem for all her clients. When she tore a rotator cuff, she learned about shoulders, how they move, how they function, and how they function well. Not only did she completely recover from her injury, she wrote a book "Releasing the Rotator Cuff" so other massage therapists can help their clients with shoulder injuries. When faced with a back injury, Peggy worked to recover from that, and recover she did. Not content to just overcome her own injury, she wrote another book "The Core of the Matter", with content geared to help others, and other massage therapists, with back problems. Peggy doesn't just fix issues that come up in her life, but she fixes those issues for others. Peggy Lamb is not just a massage therapist, she is an author of five books, a creator of four instructional DVDs, a teacher of massage therapists, and a leader in her field. All of this comes from one feeling the desire to touch, to heal, and to be touched. 

In addition to her extensive training in massage therapy, Peggy holds a master's degree in Dance from American University in Washington, D.C. She has volunteered for 10 years with "Truth be Told", teaching creative movement and writing to incarcerated women. Peggy brings her eclectic and extensive background into her teaching for an interesting, enjoyable and enlightening learning experience. When she's not working, Peggy can be found dancing, swimming in Austin's Barton Springs, hiking or even dog sledding.
