Q: What job options are available for Massage Therapists?
A: The demand for alternative treatments is growing at an alarming rate. Many people are choosing to use Accupressure to treat Lower Back Pain (LBP); Craniosacral Therapy to treat migrane headaches and Deep Tissue Massage to feel relief from Fibromyalgia just to name a few. With this demand, many people are opting to seek the techniques and skills of a qualified massage professional. Massage Therapists work in a variety of environments ranging from spas, athletic clubs, chiropractic offices, airports, wellness centers, shopping malls, private offices and nursing facilities. Many hospitals are now offering massage as a component of palliative care for their patients. One of the great aspects about this field is its flexibility. Some therapists will only work three days a week, while others work full-time, servicing as many as six to seven clients per day. Most massage therapists at some point will service clients in a private practice.
