Massage therapy could be just the career change you need to make 2020 your best year yet
Close your eyes and picture this:
You have just finished providing a great massage session in your own cozy space… quiet music is playing, your client says it’s the best massage they’ve ever had and they rebook for a monthly time slot. Then you clean up, relax with a cup of tea and complete your client notes in plenty of time for your next session. You are helping people, taking care of yourself and earning a great income. You feel fulfilled, energized and excited about your future. Sigh…. This is awesome, you reflect… Thank goodness you made the choice to switch careers.
Okay, snap back to today.
Did that sound like a dream day at work for you? Away from the hustle and grind of a more corporate, structured setting? Having the flexibility to set your own schedule? Earning a great living? Helping people live a better, healthier life? If you’re nodding yes to any of those questions, then right now is the time to start planning your future and making 2020 your year as a massage therapist.
What makes this exciting career even better? How about these five reasons:
Massage therapy is a diverse industry
Massage Therapists can work in a wide variety of work environments, such as chiropractic offices, wellness clubs, spas, sports rehab centres or even start their own business. You may also have the choice of travelling for work, working from home and working outside of the standard 9-5 office hours.
Bringing out your inner entrepreneur
If you’re the self-starter type, choosing a career in massage therapy may be great for you. Being your own boss gives you the freedom to choose your own hours and take on as much work as you’d like. It’s also a great choice for those who want to work part-time while still having time for the things they love.
Making a difference in others’ health
Therapeutic massage relieves stress, tension and pain for clients. At the end of an appointment, clients leave feeling better than they did when they walked in — and you feel great for having helped them. If you are someone who thrives off helping others, a career in massage therapy would be extremely gratifying.
Bye-bye office chair
Get out of your 8-hour-a-day office chair and get active at work. Massage therapists work with their hands and are physical with every client.
