Massage therapy careers ...
and creating the best job you'll ever have!
 

Massage therapy careers can provide a great income for you and your family. They can be rewarding and fulfill a need to help others relieve pain and stress.

Benefits of Massage Therapy Careers

The benefits of massage include things that you can't buy......release of work stress,trauma, grief, scar tissue pain after surgery, or much-needed time away from caring for an elderly or sick family member.

There are many relaxing types of massage offered in spas, salons,and private practices around the world, but only true relaxation in a comfortable environment can ensure a great massage.

Types of jobs

Massage therapy jobs  include spa owner, manager or therapist, school owner, massage teacher, cruise ship therapist, massage doula (birth assistant), mobile massage therapist, or private practice owner.

Other massage therapy careers allow you to work with a specific clientele such as elderly, or infants. Having your own special "niche" is massage therapy is a great way to build a practice.

 Finding your niche 

Your salary may also depend on your niche or types of massage you practice. For instance, if you want to specialize in pregnancy massage, you want to know specialized techniques that cater to pregnant women.

These are a few popular techniques that therapists recommend for growing a niche massage business:

Fertility Massage

Pregnancy Massage

Sports Massage

Cellulite Massage

Elder Massage

Baby Massage

Building your business

Know that many massage careers are often built in a massage chair!

Massage chairs offer a day of pampering at work or in a busy mall. Mobile massage jobs are great for any massage therapist who wants to start with a chair massage business, with hopes of later moving to a home office or salon/spa office.  

But, it is hard work, and sometimes...you must offer it free to build your business!

Choosing supplies

You do not have to have the most expensive massage products to have a thriving massage practice, but sometimes the cheapest isn't the best either.

Read reviews by experienced massage professions for the products you use most in your practice!

Massage Creams

Massage Oils

Massage therapy is unlike any job you have ever had, or will ever have. It is rewarding in so many ways, but it is hard work and most therapists are unable to make it a life-long career.

For those who do, massage is in the blood. You cannot get it out and when you can't do massage, you are just not whole.
