Becoming A

Massage Therapist

Why Massage Therapy?

Massage TherapyUnlike much of today’s healthcare, massage therapy enables you to work one-on-one with each and every client; sometimes as their primary caregiver for pain and stress relief. This is possible because in Texas, massage therapy is considered health care like nursing and physical therapy. You also have the opportunity to operate your own practice if you so choose, independent of any other healthcare provider. Not even nurses can do that! Finally, there are countless, good paying jobs & benefits as a massage therapist, many paying $55,000 a year or more! These jobs can be found in the rehab sector, oncology, pain clinics, massage establishment and resort spas.
