Hi Lynn,
I was in same position last year. I went to my local slimming class and offered free massages as weekly raffle prizes. I also offered massages to the class at cost price (you can't ask for payment until you are qualified as it would negate your insurance) I charged £5.00 to cover washing towels, heating the room and cost of oils. Not everyone took up the offer but many did and not only did I get the experience but I also got several loyal clients for when I set up on my own in Sept 08. I don't do a lot of business but it is enough for me.
You may not fancy a slimming class, but I am sure local schools would be glad of raffle prizes etc. I did a leaflet explaining my position.
DO make sure you are insured though won't you
All the best
Barbara
