Massage Therapy Schools - Your Key to a New Career

Massage Therapy
Are you seeking a course of study that can set you on a new career path? Perhaps you should look into Massage Therapy Schools!

Massage Therapy is fast becoming one of the most popular fields of study for those who are interested in helping others lead happier and healthier lives. There are hundreds of Massage Therapy Schools to choose from, each with its own unique course of study.

The field of massage therapy is vast, and specific massage courses that are offered by one school may not be offered by all. The aspiring massage therapist should be sure to thoroughly investigate several Massage Therapy Schools to be sure any prerequisites can be met, and that course duration will meet the student's availability. It is equally important that the curriculums offered will meet the student's goals and ultimate career choice.

Most Massage Therapy Schools offer a certificate or diploma upon course completion. Some Massage Therapy Schools even offer advanced degrees in massage therapy, such as Associate, Bachelor, or Master. Students who are simply curious may wish to begin with community workshops or seminars that present a more informal mode of massage therapy training.

Once you have decided on your choice of massage schools you will begin learning the basics of anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, and ethics. Of course, you will also receive a fair amount of hands-on training in massage techniques.

Massage Therapy Schools often teach several styles of bodywork including acupressure, hot stone massage, lymphatic massage, Chinese medical massage, reflexology, Swedish massage, Rolfing, sports massage, and zero balancing, to name a few.

Whether your personal goal includes opening your own private day spa or practice, or practicing in a health care setting, Massage Therapy Schools can help you achieve your goals in a matter of months or even a few weeks.
