Wellness Business Consulting


100 per session - Virtual OK

I will help you start or grow your private practice, using tried and true methods of marketing that highlight your values and uniqueness while not costing a lot of money. I specialize in consulting for wellness practitioners, in the fields of massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, yoga, and personal training. We can meet at my studio in Greenpoint Brooklyn, or via phone or Skype. I work with clients both locally and remotely.

In my years of experience, I have helped a range of entrepreneurs to start and grow their practices. Here is feedback from actual clients:

"Rachel's patience and wisdom helped me grow my private massage practice to a team of 12 professionals working with a client base of 2,500. We are about to open our second location."

"When I took her advice about how to restructure my fledgling business, I went from losing money to breaking even in just a couple of weeks. I have been very lucky to have her help and guidance. Her advice has been invaluable."

"Rachel has helped me immensely by never hesitating to share tips from her experience, and encouraging me to move forward as an entrepreneur."

"When I started my business I had no idea what to do. She gave me SO many helpful tips.
Rachel has built her own small business. She truly practices what she preaches."

"Rachel provided me with a detailed list of steps I should take, and followed up with my progress.
Rachel helped me grow my private practice after one session."

"I'm really cooking with ideas, action step and crystallizing a vision for my professional future. THANK YOU for asking the right questions! More to come!!"

"I enthusiastically recommend you seek her services and support if you are trying to set up or grow your health or wellness practice."

"Rachel gave me practical feedback about my website, marketing, and SEO."

"After implementing her feedback, I saw a substantial growth in calls from new clients. I have shared her suggestions with colleagues and they have seen similar success."

"Rachel has been an incredible resource. To this day I continue to consult our notes."

Wow! I got more insight out of one hour with Rachel than in the previous year of trying to do it on my own. Rachel is generous with her knowledge, eas...y to talk to, and certainly knows her stuff. Can't wait to put these ideas into action. Thank you, thank you, thank you!show more

An awesome person, very warm and thoughtful, great at opening your mind to new ideas and encouraging you to pursue things you might have otherwise intimidated by. I got a lot out of our conversation and by the end of it I felt more uplifted and motivated than I had in a while. Highly recommended!show more

I came to Simbi to foster a sense of community and mutual willingness to help one another outside of the traditional fold. Unfortunately, my interac...tion with Rachel proved to be otherwise. I recommend being clearer with those you speak with here, to be sure your goals are aligned. show more

About Rachel Beider

I am a Wellness Business Consultant, and a licensed massage therapist, and proud owner of two successful wellness centers in NYC. I've owned my massage studio for 9 years and recently opened a second... location, adding 8 additional treatment rooms to my practice, (17 in total). I employ 40 professionals ranging from massage therapists to front desk and management. I have been a business consultant for individuals and companies in the NYC area as well as via Skype in other states, namely California. I recently taught a continuing education class on starting and growing a private practice at the Swedish Institute, and plan on teaching other business courses in the future. According to the Small Business Administration, 90% of service businesses will fail within the first 5 years. These statistics are even higher for Massage Therapy as a profession. They fail not because they don't offer great services, but because massage therapists can be extremely uncomfortable with traditional marketing, resulting in feeling overwhelmed, isolated, and frustrated. Wellness practitioners tend to be highly nurturing. We nurture our clients, our peers, our loved ones, its what we do. I will teach you to nurture your business. When I started my practice at age 24, 6 months after graduating from massage school, I was able to effectively and immediately grow my private practice from 10 clients, to 110 new clients within one summer. I did this with limited resources and very little funds, which required creative solutions. I have a proven system for getting more clients, all while on a budget. And it works. In our sessions I will lay out an easy-to-follow road map for starting and growing your wellness practice based on 7 core self-promotion strategies. Through verbal and written exercises, you'll not only learn how to develop a strong marketing plan and brand identity, but you'll also learn why self-promotion is absolutely critical to your success -— and how to do it with passion and purpose. Even if you hate the idea of marketing and selling yourself, these practical, inspirational sessions will lift you up and give you the confidence you need to comfortably and authentically market yourself and your services, tap into an endless supply of quality referrals, and watch your business grow. show more
