Friends, graduates, & community — As you know, in the fall of 2021, we made the difficult decision to not enroll any further classes. Since then, we have heard from so many of you. We truly appreciate your support, good wishes, and continued involvement that ensures our students receive an exceptional education.With that said, we are excited to share some good news! We have reached an agreement with Dreamclinic Massage to continue operating the school, albeit from a new location. We are now going through the legal paperwork and expect to sign a final deal this month.What is special about this arrangement is that Larisa Goldin, Dreamclinic CEO, is a Brenneke graduate who worked and studied with Pat, Julie, and Heida Brenneke while she was a student. We believe Larisa understands our unique approach to massage education and appreciates the importance of preparing graduates holistically for success – body, mind, and spirit. It is the wish of both parties - Discoverypoint and Dreamclinic - to preserve our approach to running the school and educating students, which means a lot to us.In other words, Discoverypoint is continuing... just with ownership and support from Dreamclinic.With love and anticipation,💜 Pat, Julie, & Lisa ...

Beloved graduates, peers, friends, and community: It is with great sadness and tremendous gratitude that we share this with you: we will not be enrolling students for the Fall 2021 start... and likely not enrolling any future classes as well.We realize that many of you may be shocked, saddened, disappointed... and we are too. We’ve considered many, many avenues for keeping our doors open, but without sustainable enrollment numbers, we simply cannot continue. While demand for LMTs (nationwide and in WA) continues to grow, enrollment numbers continue to decline. This trend was underway when we first opened our doors nearly 10 years ago, and the pandemic has only widened that divide.We just graduated a lovely and talented group of grads. We are also firmly committed to completing classes (Q3 & Q4) for our final cohort with care, support, and professionalism. They will graduate and join the massage profession in March 2022.The silver lining in all of this, to be honest, is all of you — the students, teachers, and supportive community who have helped us (and each other) grow and learn and develop. We have treasured our time together and appreciate what you brought to us and the profession. You all are a gift, and we're grateful to know and grow alongside you.Remember, a Discoverypoint is neither the beginning nor the end, but a point along the way…part of the journey of our lives, our careers, and the stories we continue to weave. Thank you for joining us on this journey.💜 Pat, Lisa & Julie ... See MoreSee Less

Hence, although it is not usual, there is a risk that the practitioner may cause damage to the #client. Many companies offer policy coverage for at least $2,000,000 limit per occurrence for less than $300 per year. Besides, a massage center must have a #CommercialInsurance with Civil Liability coverage to obtain the licenses.The most common coverage is the Civil Liability of Exploitation. This is responsible for the business activities. It also covers the damages that employees may cause when carrying out their work.The Employer’s Civil Liability covers the business owner if workers suffer injuries or death due to an accident at work.Multi-Risk InsuranceThis insurance covers the damages that can be caused by a fire or a flood in the #assets of the premises that are insured. It also includes glass breaks, moons, mirrors, etc. It is the insurance company that is responsible for the expenses that may involve the repair of the affected goods.The theft coverage is also #essential because in a massage center may have material quality and quite expensive.#dpsom #legalizeit #massagecareers #happyhealing #holistictherapy ...

#7 Find a #StrategicLocation for #SuccessWhen choosing the location of the #massagecenter, it is best to separate yourself from the #competition. In big cities, there are already many massage centers, and you can find #pricewars and services. What you need to do is look for locations where there are almost no massage centers and little competition.To set up a massage center and have many #clients, you must try to locate it in a street where there is a lot of #movement. The massage rooms must be located in an area of the premises where the sound of the street is not heard. This condition is to avoid disturbing the #tranquility of the clients.A good idea is to locate the massage center in an area where there are people who work all day. In this way, receiving a massage when leaving work will be a perfect #opportunity for them.#dpsom #seattle #caphillseattle #massageschool #massagecareer ... See MoreSee Less
