Ethical Product Sales
Massage therapists are in a unique position to provide adjunct client
care through product sales. Retailing helps therapists increase their income
and provides their clients with products to extend the treatment benefits to
home. It offers convenience for clients, and that alone can reduce their
stress. Yet many therapists are reluctant to sell products. They feel their job
goes beyond touch and are concerned that retailing might be seen as
unprofessional. They want to be respectful and not cross boundaries.
Product sales is a natural extension of the standard of care and healing
already associated with massage therapy. A conflict doesn’t need to exist as
long as a few guidelines are followed. In this webinar will explore the role of
retailing in a practice, your unique position as a therapist, how the power
differential affects sales, the types of products that are appropriate to sell,
and the key factors in ethical sales.
