Looking for work - reflexology
I am a qualified Reflexologist (ITEC Dip) and I am looking for work either one of two days a week in a local clinic or salon. I would also be interested in corporate bookings and pamper days. I live in Welwyn Garden City in Hertforshire and although I also have a full-time job, my hours are flexible.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01707 887781.
Hi Emma - just browsing and noticed your message from last year. I've just finished from ITEC A&P and Reflexology (fingers crossed I've passed) and would love to know how you have progressed since January 06. I'm a bit at a loss as to what to do next .. results not until end of Aug 07, but I don't want to lose my enthusiasm.
Any advice would be welcome.
Sorry I did not reply sooner, I have only just checked my e-mails.
Without trying to sound too negative business is quite slow. I do however have a full-time job so I do have to juggle the two. I am also careful about how I advertise as I am a mobile therapist and am aware of the obvious issues involving my safety so mostly I try to work from recommendation - which is why business is slow. If I am seeing a client for the first time that has not been recommended by a friend or member of my family I ask my husband to come with me and wait in the car and I let the customer know that my husband is coming with me and explain why. It's maybe not an ideal scenario but I haven't had a problem with it as yet. I think most people see it as a sensible option.
You could try to contact some local schools to see if they offer indulgence evenings. I have done a couple of these now and have had some clients from them. Normally one of the mums will organise one of these events so ask the school for her contact details. They are not great earners and you will normally do 15 minutes treatments for between £5 and £8 each but it is a good way to get yourself known locally.
I have also joined a couple of groups to help boost my earnings as a therapist and one of them is called the Pampering Experience. If you would like their details please e-mail me direct at email@example.com and the other group who I am about to approach are called Pamper Party. With both groups you work freelance and they take a small cut of your earnings - which I am quite happy with as they are actively finding the business for you. I believe that both groups are happy for you to try to promote your own business too.
I hope this helps and wish you luck.
If you would like to know anything else, please feel free to contact me.
