Arrabella Schippers MMT, CPT / Founder & CEO ARVAmethod
Master Educator, Licensed Massage Therapist and CEO
Arrabella Schippers has an extensive background and experience in the holistic health and fitness industry. She has worked in sports training, rehabilitation, clinical pain management, chiropractic care, luxury spa, and private practice. Her role in each area of her career has taught her the ins and outs of marketing, networking, branding, and sales in this unique and diverse industry. Her education combined with her drive to make holistic care better and more accessible has shaped her focus as a provider, educator, and entrepreneur.
Arrabella understands the need for providers working in the holistic health, fitness, coaching, and beauty industry to learn the skills around business growth and customer care. The vast majority of new clients for these types of providers come from direct referral and networking rather than advertising and media focused campaigns. The goal for these types of providers is to build a base of consistent and regular clients through establishing high quality professional relationships and a good referral network. These are skills that need to be recognized, learned, executed and improved upon constantly. These are the skills you will learn, and learn how to apply through Arrabella’s targeted training courses.
"You can be the very best at what you do, but without the ability to communicate it and show it, you will not be able to grow your business.”
