Ten Reasons to Become a Massage Therapist

By Cortney Philip

1. Massage therapists are licensed professionals.

Almost all states in the U.S. require massage therapists to be licensed. To become a massage therapist, you must complete a certification or degree program at a massage therapy school and anywhere from a few hundred to a thousand hours of practice. While this may sound like a lot of work, it’s actually great recognition for people in the field. Massage therapy has become a respected profession, and not just anyone can set up shop anymore.

2. Massage therapists graduate with all the skills they need to work right away.

Massage therapy school is hands-on. Students are trained in musculature, anatomy, and several massage therapy techniques. By the time they graduate, they’ve had enough practical experience to start working at spas, hospitals, clinics, or even out of their own homes.

3. Massage therapists can become business owners.

According to the Bureau f Labor Statistics, 57% of massage therapists are self-employed. Many of these people work out of their homes or travel to clients. Still others with thriving practices open their own offices and also employ others to offer clients a whole range of services and techniques.

4. Massage therapists can set their own hours.

Being able to make your own schedule is one of the biggest advantages of being self-employed. If you have children, hate mornings, or are even pursuing a second career, massage therapists who work for themselves can schedule appointments to fit their own lives.

5. Massage therapists can travel to exotic locations for work.

Because spas, hotels, and cruise ships employ so many massage therapists, adventure seekers may be able to find employment anywhere from mountain ski resorts to tropical island destinations.

6. Massage therapists help people.

Massage therapists provide an invaluable service to people who are in pain, recovering from injuries, or experiencing severe stress. The work they do speeds up the healing process, improves circulation, and restores emotional balance to their clients’ lives.

7. Clients look forward to seeing their massage therapists.

Whether the reason is medicinal, therapeutic, or just a special occasion, people genuinely look forward to getting massages. While most folks dread going to the doctor or the dentist, seeing a massage therapist is a positive experience associated with feeling good.

8. Massage therapists work in relaxing environments.

Because a massage therapists create a mood with scented candles, soft towels, and music, they get to spend their working hours in a peaceful place of their own design.

9. Massage therapists stay physically active.

Massage therapists work on their feet and engage their whole bodies when giving massages. The nature of the work is physically demanding, and as a result, massage therapists are often in great shape.

10. Job outlook is great for licensed massage therapists.

Because the medical community is beginning to recognize the value of massage therapy, job growth over the next decade is predicted to be 19%, which is above average. New massage therapy jobs are even being created in places like office buildings and nursing homes.
