Teaching Healers

Kelly is the owner of The Healing Core, a company dedicated to sharing pragmatic information about the basics of running a small business. She provides education through live classes and books.

She translates the language and concepts of business into language you understand. Her classes are focused on a specific skill or type of knowledge. Her classes routinely receive excellent reviews from her students.

Kelly was drawn to this work out of frustration -- the frustration of too many massage therapists not able to have the practice they want because they don’t understand business. For Kelly, it’s all about helping healing arts professionals take care of their business and their greatest business asset: themselves.


You don't have to wait for a live class to take advantage of what Kelly has to offer. She has published six e-books (and is working on a print book) about the business of massage. (She also writes about travel, probably her second greatest passion.)

The way you define yourself in your head (your professional self-image) critically affects how you will go forward. When you have to figure out how to allocate your (usually limited) time, energy, and money you will naturally give more to whatever you hold as primary in your head. 

If I hold “massage therapist” as my primary professional self-image, I will allocate more of my time / energy / money to my massage work. My (developing) education company gets what’s left over. That is not going to get me where I want to go.
