What’s In Your Web? A Myofascial Release Cash-Based Practice

In this episode of the CashPT Lunch Hour I had the pleasure to interview Phil Tavolacci MSPT. Phil is the owner of TAVO Total Health, a 100% cash-based multi-therapist physical therapy practice in Silver Spring, MD specializing in John Barnes’ Myofascial Release. Phil recently published his first book, What’s In Your Web?: Stories of Fascial Freedom. I first met Phil about 5 or 6 years ago at a John Barnes Myofascial Release seminar and have kept up with him since via the MFR Talk email list and Facebook group. He has a multi-therapist and multi-specialty niche practice that is 100% cash-based. He is a perfect guest for this webinar series as he breaks so many established “rules” in his success. Join us today to learn what’s in Phil’s web.




In this webinar you Phil answers the questions:

1) When & Why did you transition your practice to a fully cash-based practice?

(2) What would you say are the most important “ingredients”, so to speak, for a successful cash-based therapy practice?

(3) What were some “mistakes” you may have made along the way that you could touch upon so our participants can learn and possibly avoid mistakes along their journeys?

(4) Now that you’re 10 years into your private practice (the last 8 being fully cash-based) what do you see the next 10 years of your practice looking like?

(5) Do you think one has to have a Niche or Specialty practice in order to thrive as a cash-based practice?

(6) Do you hire your other therapists as employees or independent contractors? How do you make it work so the employer/contractor relationship benefits both parties?

We also discuss Phil’s journey to learning Myofascial Release and using it as a hands-on modality to successfully transition to the cash-based model and fill his practice with cash paying patients.
