Start A Therapy Practice Podcast

Aaron LeBauer joins me to discuss cash based therapy. He and his wife own and operate a cash only PT practice.

Aaron started a massage therapy business in 1999.  He decided he needed more knowledge and expertise on the body and how it worked so he went to PT school.  As a student, he figured out quickly that he did not want to work in the corporate world of PT because he wanted to give more individualized care to his patients.

Besides running his own cash based practice, Aaron now helps other therapists learn how to start a cash only practice too.

I love Aaron's attitude of simplicity both in life and in private practice.  It's definitely an attitude that builds success.

Be sure to check out the links at the end of this post which are mentioned in our conversation.

Here are some of the subjects we cover:

  • How to begin and nurture relationships that will bring you referrals
  • What to do if you are just starting a private practice
  • Specific information to have on your website to bring in customers
  • How to optimize your practice website so people can find you
