Massage Therapy as a Growing Profession
As greater numbers of people integrate complementary health care modalities into their lives, the demand for massage therapy continues to grow. Massage therapists are enjoying wider application of their skills than ever before, working in both traditionally alternative and allopathic venues. We frequently hear from graduates that practicing massage has afforded them the option to work their own hours in stimulating health care settings, work in their homes, or otherwise create more satisfying lives, with time for family or other pursuits.
