Massage Therapy is a career field that can allow you to work your own hours, and a career that you can feel good about because you’ll be helping other people.

Massage Therapy is also an industry that continues to grow at an accelerated rate. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment rates for Massage Therapists are expected to increase 27% or more through 2014.

Another great benefit of becoming a massage therapist is that the work environments are usually very relaxing.

Imagine having a job as a massage therapist at a resort, hotel, or therapeutic office. Working in serene, calming environments is just a nice perk of working in massage therapy.
