About Masters in Massage

All courses are custom-designed by Massage Therapists and a Doctor of Chiropractic with years of clinical and teaching experience, using mainstream-accepted standards and procedures.

We relate to the struggles and frustrations you might be experiencing in your massage practice because we experienced so many of them too, before discovering ways to readily turn things around by applying client-care procedures that empowered us to create hugely successful practices.

The courses and books we offer you share these procedures with you so you too can enjoy heightened professional esteem and practice success. 

You're sure to continue using these time-tested skills throughout your massage career.

About Michael Koplen, LMT, DC

Hi, I'm Michael Koplen, fellow Massage Therapist and Doctor of Chiropractic.

I'm here to share with you client management and practice success methods that empowered me and others to create lucrative and well-respected practices.

I know first-hand the struggles and challenges you face as a Massage Therapist because I've experienced them too, both in my full-time massage career and later in my chiropractic practice, before spending a lot of time and money learning highly effective client-management procedures and communications that readily turned things around.

Now you can readily access these same client management-centered procedures and communications through the books and courses found here at Masters In Massage.

Please stop struggling and finally enjoy the respect, confidence, and practice success you deserve!

About Alyson Laurel, LMT, BS, Contributor

Hi, I'm Alyson and I'm happy to meet you!

After graduating from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in psychology and biology, I considered becoming a PT but decided to help people by becoming a Massage Therapist.

That was nearly 30 years ago and I've never looked back! 

Admittedly, I struggled in practice in ways that you might too, like not feeling the professional respect and credibility we deserve, especially considering how many people we help feel better.

I suffered from not having the client management skills that generate better client retention and practice success that aren't taught in massage schools or elsewhere for that matter.  

Through interacting with Chiropractors and sharing mutual referrals, I wanted to learn much of what they know about professionally managing patients' care and having them rebook far more than I knew how to get them to do.

I later met Michael Koplen, a long time Massage Therapist and a DC, through other Massage Therapists here in town who spoke highly of their professional relationship with him.

He had a super successful massage practice and ran the Denver Massage Center, then expanded his education by going to Chiropractic college. He spent several more years with a client-management group which empowered him with the skills to create one of the most successful chiropractic practices in the nation (and receive a national chiropractor of the year award).

Michael knew quite well the client care and practice success procedures I'd been looking for, which are found in the books and courses he developed exclusively for Massage Therapists.

After generously sharing many with me, he asked me to add insights to his books and courses that he keeps updated and revised.

I can honestly tell you that if you want to manage your clients' care the way true professionals do and have a far more successful practice⎯⎯you don't want to miss out on letting these books and courses teach you how to do it!
