On this 120 minute webinar replay we’ll show you...

  • How to Design the Perfect Layout (floor plan) for your physical therapy, chiropractic or massage therapy clinic.  We will be showing you the most profitable floor plans that provide maximum utilization and optimize the patient experience flow. We’ll dissect proven floor plans that we’ve used at our 1800 SF that does $1.5M in annual sales and 3000 SF that is doing $3.3M in annual sales.
  • How to Choose the Perfect Location. The only 3 factors to look for when picking the ideal location that gets you boatloads of walk by traffic from day one (99% don’t know this).
  • How to Negotiate Your Commercial Lease.  Get 5 negotiation tactics the top clinic owners in the world use to get the best deal on their lease while getting their landlord to pay for the renovations. (Yes! The landlord will pay for your renovations if you say this.)
