Paul Kirchhoff, LMT  

 
Chair Massage

Bio:  Paul Kirchhoff, a massage school instructor at the time, discovered that business education in massage schools left much to be desired. He also noticed that many of the schools' graduates were not working to their expectations, and some of them, although very talented, had dropped out of the profession entirely. Realizing that business and marketing skills are completely different from technical skills but just as important, Paul began teaching Marketing classes locally. These classes grew into what today is our WorkSmart series which soon grew to a national schedule. Paul founded the LMT Success Group in 1986 with the intention of helping other massage therapists to increase their business and marketing skills.
