Paying it forward

Posted on June 16, 2014 by Sheryl Rapée-Adams

Gift Certificate for client who needs assistance payingIn our Bodywork Rates page, we say:

Any amounts paid to us that exceed our fees, we will donate to a local nonprofit or put toward the cost of treatment for people who need, but cannot afford, our services.

A client took us up on it, paying $20 above the cost of treatment to be held for someone who could use help paying for theirs.

When a client makes that offering, we create a gift certificate for the amount of their contribution. We hold it for a client who requests our services but cannot afford them.

By accepting gratuities only in the form of donation to charities or toward clients who need financial assistance, we offer clients the opportunity to do well (by getting bodywork) while doing good (helping others get bodywork).

Check out the health benefits of helping others, according to the respected Cleveland Clinic’s News Wire:

From “Why Giving is Good for Your Health:  Studies document the ‘helper’s high’”

What acts of helping and giving have left you with “helper’s high”?
