Five Things I Love About Being a Massage Therapist

Feb 15, 2017 3:43:57 PM by MTTI

Becoming a massage therapist is one of the best decisions I ever made. There are lots of things I love about it, but here are my Top Five. 

1. Making a Positive Difference

Before going to massage school, I worked at an office from nine-to-five. My job was to collect information about children’s summer camps. Although I knew that my work might be helping families somewhere down the line, mostly I just saw spreadsheets. As a massage therapist, I get to see the positive impact of my work every day. There’s nothing like seeing a client get off my table smiling and sparkly-eyed after a massage, saying, “I didn’t know my body could feel that good!” or “Wow, I can turn my head again!”
