WHY BECOMING A MASSAGE THERAPIST?
EARN WHAT YOU’RE WORTH
When you work your way through a massage therapy school and earn a massage therapy certification, you deserve to be compensated for your skills.
Self-employed massage therapists typically earn up to $80 per hour, or between $60,000 to $100,000 per year, depending on how many hours they choose to work. Massage therapists who earn an hourly wage as an employee tend to earn around $32 per hour, according to PayScale.com.
A QUICK WAY TO START YOUR CAREER
Imagine yourself establishing a satisfying new career within just several months. Whether you’re partway down a job path that just doesn’t suit you or are at the beginning of your professional life and looking for a clear direction, consider massage therapy as an accessible way to chart a new life course. You won’t have to spend year after year in a classroom to obtain a degree that may or may not guarantee you employment upon graduation.
A CAREER THAT OFFERS YOU JOB SECURITY
Not only can you take your skills to a variety of geographic locations and environments, from medical settings to spas or solo practices, you can also count on a continuing and growing demand for the service. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for massage therapists is expected to grow about 26 percent by 2026, a much faster rate than other industries, and we expect to see similar growth here in Canada. If you want to make a sure bet on a great career for providing for yourself or your family in the long-term, consider massage therapy.
