You may have visited our website, we have staff working constantly answering calls as well as advanced booking software, Google Ads etc.. Now I ask you would it make sense if we built and maintained it for nothing? Our mission is to get bookings for our therapists and get commission , that is our income. That is why we help you to get the professional Guild International (GTI) certificate to become a therapist. What are you waiting for?
You are self-employed, so you choose the clients you wish to work with, the area and the working hours. When you register with us, you will need to fill a therapist questionnaire about your preferences and we will act accordingly.
Professional therapists can upload their qualifications and in 5 working days our admissions team will either register the therapists or reject them. But beginners can apply and we will provide training and certification before they start.
We have two departments working together.
1 – Marketing Department. They are responsible for making a professional online profile for you and advertising it, in order to let clients find you and book you.
2 – Training department. They assess you, register you, issue an accredited certificate, advise you about how to insure yourself and start earning as a therapist.
However, no one can guarantee the number of your bookings. It’s like if you say to your boxing coach to guarantee you that you will be a world champion.
For sure it is impossible to look for clients and not find them, and if you have found one, he/she will possibly create 5 others if you are good enough.
No, you can keep all your tips.
Every beginning is difficult, and you are a new therapist on the website. Please be patient in the first few weeks, as the market is huge, there are lots of therapists out there. Also, the clients will consider your skills and the area you are willing to travel. For example: if you are a qualified massage therapist, it might not be enough for everyone. Some clients prefer to book a therapist with different skills like holistic and beauty.
No, we do not discriminate. The clients will book you, and they are free to choose anyone they prefer.
If you were successful on practical assessment day, then you are a qualified therapist and ready to treat your clients. The professional profile is going to be available for the public in 5 working days. It means you will have a dedicated page and a professional booking system through the website. You can also register with other agencies and get the bookings from them as well.
We have several therapists who does in call and outcall treatments. Others might offer only outcall services. It depends on your circumstances or preferences.
It is your choice as you are a self-employed therapist. If the client wants a massage bed and you don’t have one, you can decline the booking then we will send another therapist.
As far as you wish! You determine which area you would like to cover. The bigger the area you cover the bigger chance you have of getting more bookings.
We do not have a joining fee for people who trained with us and also we now offer free admission for professional therapists as well.

There are some courses which have a different qualification which are longer, but it is optional.
You will earn from £40 to £100 per hour.
It varies because you may work for yourself, or pay commission to others, or get
tips, or work from home with Groupon or US etc…
The best condition is to work with us as a Mobile Therapist and
Your earning depends on many factors such as:
- your hygiene
- your likeability
- your customer services
- Your equipment and set up(some therapist have a bed, different oils, essences, bluetooth speaker etc..) of course this may make the clients book you again
- your availability ( if you decline bookings all the time, then you won’t earn much)
- The area you work(central London is the busiest area) of course you can work anywhere in the world.
- Be professional and train yourself a lot.
- Your social skills, if you go to an event and meet up etc.. and pass your business card to everyone, this means that you will have lots of clients.
Remember in the massage business one client may book you forever, so you need 15 regular weekly clients to earn roughly £1000, then you don’t need to look for clients anymore.
If you find a wealthy family, then you may earn more than £1000 per day,which is possible.
Let’s make a simple calculation:
Let’s say, after one month you start your business:
in the worse case, if you have only one skill, you will have roughly 2 bookings per day
That means 14 per week for £48.00 per hour.
its equal to £672 per week
If you have 10 skills you can earn £1500 to £2000 per week.
THIS IS JUST an AVERAGE.
Your clients can be anyone from someone from our booking page, to your neighbour, or even your friends and family,anyone at any age can book you.
