Home Business Ideas for Holistic Health Practitioners

8 Flares Twitter 2 Facebook 6 8 Flares ×

If you’re looking for a good home business idea, then it might be a good idea to tap the growing market in holistic health. Most holistic home business ideas have low start-up costs, and there has been an increasing demand for holistic healthcare alternatives. With the decline in the general health of the population and the increasing rate of chronic health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, joint pain, high cholesterol, digestive disorders and heart disease together with the overwhelming costs of healthcare, most people are becoming more health-conscious.

Massage Therapy Business

It’s more cost-efficient to operate a massage therapy practice from your home. You’ll only need a few things like a massage table, some therapeutic body oils and a car. An advantage to operating a massage therapist business is that you can work flexible hours. You can easily schedule massage at people’s homes, sporting events, health fairs and even businesses. A therapist working 15 hours a week earns an average of $31,500, according to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).

Reiki Practice

Reiki is a Japanese healing method that uses energy work, stress reduction and relaxation for healing purposes. Healing is done through the “life force energy” that is channeled from the Reiki healer’s hands to the patient. This therapeutic technique has been proven to be effective and has shown amazing results. A number of hospitals even use Reiki on patient treatments. You can work flexible hours in operating a Reiki home business and you can perform the treatment anywhere. Of course, it is essential that you have the proper training and certification to establish your business’ credibility.

Holistic Products Online Store

Herbs, teas, essential oils and natural remedies are becoming increasingly popular as alternatives to regular pharmaceuticals.

Launching an online store of holistic products is another possible idea for a home business. Wholesalers can be easily contacted online, and some herb stores even sell their products at wholesale prices as long as you are a certified reseller. Also, lacking web design knowledge won’t be a problem for you. There are a lot of user-friendly programs and websites that could easily guide you through building your own site. There’s also the option  of hiring a professional to build the site for you. If you don’t intend to sell your own products, you can act as a business affiliate.

    The reiki, organic, holistic and wellness industry is really appealing. Customers are so fun and engaging. Ive worked with Wave 2 Wellness and their turnkey startup business selling ecommerce sites and offering wholesale and dropshipping. The products they sell are cool, they do demo’s and sell from booth and mall kiosks as well. Most of their clients are new to online marketing but the booths always seem to sell well!
