Is a massage career right for you? The best way to find out is to have a hands-on experience before enrolling in massage school.
We offer FREE Intro to Massage Classes at the Academy of Massage Therapy & Bodyworks to help you decide if a massage therapy career is in your future. In our intro class you’ll learn more about the massage industry and careers, as well as what it’s like to be a massage therapist.
You’ll also learn about massage techniques, and we’ll tell you about our curriculum and approach to massage therapy. Attending an intro class will also give you an opportunity to see our school first-hand. You can also schedule a separate personal tour of the school and get any questions answered that you may have. In addition, lunch is provided at no charge during the class.
A career in massage therapy has many benefits. Working as a massage therapist can provide financial security and rewarding career opportunities. Massage therapists graduate from school with the skills they need to get a job right away. Massage therapy school provides hands-on training and practical experience.
Upon graduation, massage therapists have flexibility with where the work. Careers can be found at spas, hotels, resorts, and exotic locations! Work can also be found closer to home at fitness centers, massage centers, retirement communities and more. In addition, there’s also some flexibility in both the number of hours worked, and when those hours are set. Self-employed massage therapists have control to set appointments based on their availability which can be a huge advantage when juggling home, children and other life responsibilities.
Massage therapists work in relaxing and soothing environments. Picture nice soft soothing music, candles and aromatherapy as part of each work day. This ambiance makes the experience relaxing for both the client, and for the massage therapist.
Massage therapists have careers that help them to stay in physical shape. During a massage, the therapist is on his or her feet, moving and physically active the entire time. This helps a massage therapist to stay in shape much more so than working at a job behind a desk!
While working in a relaxing environment, and staying physically active, massage therapists are busy helping people. That’s a great benefit to a career in massage – knowing that you are helping people, not just physically, but emotionally too. Massage therapists help clients to enjoy a better overall quality of life.
