Massage Therapy Jobs and the Role of Everest
Posted Friday, Oct 30, 2009 by
A career as a massage therapist could take several career routes: private practice or being an employee.
Jobs exist in several categories, which includes location/setting, and the type of massage being administered.
If you’re interested in working in a spa, you may find available jobs in resorts, salons, vacation destinations, day spas and more. Therapeutic massage therapy job opportunities may include hospitals, private homes, corporations, and elderly care centers.
With over 80 different types of massages that can be administered, the job of a massage therapist should be far from boring. Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, reflexology and sports massage are just a few of the many modalities that can be practiced as a licensed professional.
In the United States alone, there are billions of dollars spent annually on massage therapy. Another factor that will have an impact on available jobs might be the notable number of therapists who quit their jobs after time because of the mental or physical work involved.
