There’s still time to cast your vote:
So far in the poll we took of holistic practitioners, most practitioners don’t experience the holiday season to be busier. But there’s no reason why you can’t be an exception and have a practice that’s busy with patients/clients before the end of the year, if you want to.
There are 4 simple ways to have an immediate holiday cash boost in your practice. Here’s one to get you started with right away: many people at this time of the year think about using up their insurance benefits before the end of the year. It’s a great time to remind people to come in before the end of the year. You can do this by calling your current/previous clients or sending out something (ie, email) to put this in their awareness.
One participant in the Consistent Clients Makeover Mentorship for Introverts just used this strategy and got 3 clients from it right away with little effort.
Don’t accept insurance, or maybe you’re in a holistic health profession that doesn’t have anything to do with insurance? Stay tuned below for what you can do that will apply to you.
Are you a naturopath, chiropractor, acupuncturist, holistic MD, or massage therapist? There’s something called the tax-free Health Savings Account (HSA) in the States. You can get such an account when you get a Health Savings Account (HSA) health insurance policy. The *deductibles are usually higher, but the *premiums are lower per month. See definitions at the bottom of this article.
The benefit of a HSA to a patient is that:
- Instead of putting money towards a health insurance policy when you hardly use it (because you’re typically healthy), you can get a high deductible insurance policy, pay much lower monthly premiums, and start putting money towards a Health Savings Account (that’s tax free)…from the money you would’ve otherwise dumped into an insurance company.
- When you use the money, it’s tax free. Although the money saved in those HSA accounts doesn’t go away if you don’t use it, the end of the year is still a time you can bring up the opportunity to use it. You don’t have to have a relationship with an insurance company to accept money from someone’s HSA.
Here’s how you can use this to give your practice a cash boost…
Share this verbally, or copy & paste to send to your current/potential clients:
Do you have an HSA? Did you know you can use it tax free for acupuncture, naturopathic, chiropractic, or holistic MD services? It can also be used for stop smoking programs and healing services fees (disclaimer: I am not an accountant or the IRS, so please check with the rules).
Even if the person doesn’t have an HSA, it’s a great excuse to make a connection with the person. The more connections, the more likely trust is built, and eventually lead to more clients.
Now, if you’re not one of the above professionals (for example, if you’re a health coach instead), here’s a principle you can take away from the HSA holiday cash boost idea:
Give people a reason to work with you now. Look for ways that you can inspire people to book with you because of the holidays. Is it a good time to book with you, because it’s a good time to be slim & trim after the many upcoming holiday parties and family reunions?

*Deductible= how much minimum you need to spend each year towards your healthcare before you can start receiving benefits from the policy
*Health insurance premiums=the amount you have to pay to the insurance company regardless of whether you use healthcare
Some companies offer HSA insurance; many self-employed people have HSA insurance. Younger people tend to carry the insurance because they often are more likely to not use the healthcare system as much.
