Top 4 Best Selling Electric Massage Tables in 2018

Posted by Rick Lau on Apr 2, 2018 7:22:50 AM

I work with many successful clinic owners and my favourite business model is multidisciplinary practice: 25% chiropractics, 25% physiotherapy, 25% massage therapy, and the rest naturopathy, personal training, or other allied health practitioners.  

A multidisciplinary clinic is the ideal business model: and if you have a 3000SF clinic, it should turn over $2M+ annually.

Why is it so crucial to have a diversified clinic? Because every potential patient has unique needs. Some may need (or want) chiropractic services, while others may need rehab and physiotherapy, or seek pain relief with massage therapy.

Offering a diversified range of services at your clinic will increase the number of patients you attract and your ability to keep them long term through ‘maintenance’ services or the complementary services you offer.

The last thing a patient wants is to be treated on a bed that feels rickety, squeaks, and is uncomfortable to lie on.

Patients expect a professional to use a table that's robust, sturdy, and provides maximum comfort. You want patients to be able to lie down and think: "I can relax, my massage therapist has professional gear and knows what they are doing."

So if you're in the market for a new massage table, here is a list of our top best selling electric massage tables for 2018. We ’ve share d what clinicians  like and dislike most about the tables, along with our best picks for quality, purpose and price.

How to Get Therapy Product Covered by Your Patient's Extended Health Insurance

Posted by Rick Lau on May 16, 2017 7:00:00 AM

I recently attended Darryl Yardley’s training webinar on The Top 7 Reasons Why Clinicians Struggle To Sell Products and How To Fix It - if you click on that link you can watch the webinar instantly.

Look, I’ve been in the rehab business for a long time. I built a alot of physiotherapy and chiropractic clinics over the past decade. But, no matter how long you’re in business, there’s always something more to be learned.

For instance, even though I feel I know quite a lot about product sales, and I’ve been to several of Darryl’s webinars before, I had an amazing “ah ha” moment at Darryl’s most recent webinar.

The “ah ha” moment was the realization that physiotherapists and chiropractors are not taking advantage of getting therapy products reimbursed by their patient's extended health plans. This is a crazy realization because it costs you nothing and it costs them nothing!

Patients have a range of products available to them, all of which are covered by their health care plans. You just have to tell them about what they can get because they don’t know.

Of course you’re not just going to do it for the sake of doing it. But as a clinic owner or clinician, it’s in your best interest to offer “complete care.” Since patients see you once or twice per week, their complete care may include compression garments or knee braces to assist in their recovery. And you can take advantage of their insurance coverage to help them get what they need — now that’s superior care!

I want to share what I learned at Darryl's webinar because it can help you improve your business:

We'll cover:

  • Why you can charge more for products
  • Extended health benefits explained
  • 3 types of insurance coverages to pay for products you recommend to pattients 

Are you ready to make patients happier and watch your practice soar?

Of course you are, so let’s dive in so you can learn how to get the right coverage for your patients...

Why should YOU be more expensive when selling product at your clinic

Posted by Rick Lau on Jan 11, 2017 4:00:00 AM

Selling products. As a clinic owner you’re probably well aware that products could help increase patient incomes and boost your revenue's by 10%. But, you've tried selling products before and there always seems to be obstacles.

For one, your prices are more expensive than the big chain stores or pharmacies. This alone can make it difficult to get your clinician's to sell product or include that as part of their treatment plans. Then there’s the issue of having to choose the right product and make sure it sells. Let's face it, the last thing you want is a room full of inventory that sits there collecting dust.

I’d like to share:

  • Why you need to introduce product to boost patient outcomes
  • 3 reasons why you can charge more for products
  • What price you should markup your products
  • How to choosing the best products to sell
  • How to sell more product at your clinic

Top 30 Best Selling Products Patients Really Want

Posted by Charlotte Anderson on Dec 13, 2016 11:20:13 AM

 

Meet Charlotte Anderson, physiotherapist and owner of ALPHA Health.

In just 3 short years Charlotte has built a team of multidisciplinary experts and ALPHA is set to soar to even greater heights in the next 12 months to come. Not only has Charlotte been busy building a business, she has also been undergoing a PhD in physiotherapy.

As a registered physiotherapist and clinic owner of Alpha Health in Toronto, I treat a variety of patients (sports, wcb, mva, private) and believe in offering complete care at my own practice. Offering “complete care” includes recommending helpful advice and products that can boost your patient’s recovery.

Talking to other clinic owners I often hear their resistance to selling products - they feel pushy and they don't think it aligns with healthcare, like it's somehow unethical. I can tell you, as a clinician who actively sells product, this is the wrong way to think because you will be surprised to learn that patients appreciate product recommendations.

The truth is, patients need products to aid in their recovery. If you're not being their most trusted health advisor by making recommendations, they will just go and buy the product elsewhere - maybe even from your competitors!

So I've lined up a list of the top 30 clinic products patients really want (and need). We cover five popular product categories - pain relief, home exercise, bracing and supports, compression therapy, and pillow and lumber supports, including notable features and patient benefits of each product.

How to Display Therapy Products at Your Clinic to Sell

Posted by Rick Lau on Aug 9, 2016 8:00:00 AM

 

Recently, I was having a conversation with my clinic accelerator client about how he wants to expand his clinic and double his space. Part of his renovation plans are to build a product retail area into the clinic.

I asked him: “Why do you want to sell retail?”

He said: “I believe in the complete care model and my competitors - physiotherapist and chiropractors - are all offering products so I need to remain competitive.”

That’s smart business.

Patients are always going to purchase products they need. If you don’t offer them products they will buy poor quality, bad fitting products from the dollar shop or pharmacy. Or, they may even purchase them from competitors.

And let me share a little secret, your product sales should makeup 5% to 10% of your gross revenue. If you’re doing $300K of annual gross revenue, that’s $30K. If you’re doing $500K, that's $50K. If you’re doing $1M, that’s $100K. Regardless of your revenue, you can see that adding product boosts up your bottom line.

And, it’s not difficult to do, if you just know how to do it right.

So, in this post we’ll lay out:

  • The wrong way to set up product displays
  • How to display product like the professionals
  • Tips for making a display look awesome
  • Secrets to selling product at your clinic

Lots of examples included!  You ready?
