Are you looking for a career that helps people? Specifically performing a job that makes people feel better? If you answered yes to those questions, consider a career in massage therapy. Massage therapists reduce stress, relieve pain, help to unwind tense muscles and make people feel better.
Trained massage therapists are able to provide many types of treatments in order to help their clients feel relief. Some of the treatments that massage therapists are trained to provide include: deep-tissue, acupressure, reflexology, orthopedic, sports massage and more.
Here at The Academy of Massage Therapy & Bodyworks (AMTB), we provide training in many massage modalities which require specific skills and techniques.
Massage therapists either work for an employer in a variety of environments, including spas and hospitals, or may be self-employed with their own small business.
The numbers of spas and massage clinics have increased tremendously over the past several years. This has created a consistent growing demand for trained massage therapists.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects massage therapist employment growth of 22.6 percent between 2012 and 2022, adding 30,000 more professionals to this field. The median annual wage for massage therapists in 2012 was $35,970. The best paid therapists (top ten percent) earned $70,140.
