American College of Physicians Recommends Massage for Low Back Pain

Apr 12, 2017 8:00:00 AM by MTTI
Low back pain a problem? Doctors now say: Before you reach for the Advil, consider massage therapy. Back pain is one of the most common injuries suffered by Americans. Sometimes referred to as " throwing your back out," an acute but temporary flare-up of pain in the low back is the second most common neurological ailment and the most common cause of job-related disability. Historically, doctors have recommended that patients take over-the-counter (and sometimes prescription) pain medication to treat this condition. However, new guidelines from the American College of Physicians encourage back pain sufferers to try complementary and alternative medicine including yoga, acupuncture, and massage therapy to reduce their pain.

Tax Deduction Tips for Massage Therapists

Apr 2, 2017 9:00:00 AM by MTTI
It's tax time! Make sure you're taking the appropriate deductions for your massage therapy business.

If you’re a self-employed massage therapist, you work hard to run your business and you want to be making the most out of it. It's important to keep good records of all of your massages -- including when, where, and how much you were paid. This makes it easy to report your income at tax time and gives you the documents you need in the unfortunate case of an audit. However, in addition to tracking your income, it's equally important to keep track of your expenses. These expenses can be considered deductions and will lower the amount of income tax you are responsible to pay.
