Jul 19, 2016 8:30:00 AM by Massage Therapy Training Institute

Accepting health insurance as a massage therapist can be one of the most lucrative and satisfying ways to build your massage therapy practice. According to the AMTA’s most recent industry fact sheet, over fifty percent of Americans who received massage in the surveyed period received it for medical or health-related reasons, including pain management and injury rehabilitation. The same consumer survey tells us that massage therapists receive referrals from physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists — and fifty-five percent of massage therapists received at least one referral every six months from a hospital or medical office.

Jun 25, 2016 8:30:00 AM by MTTI

This article is part of our series on How To Choose The Best Massage School For You.


When selecting a massage school, one of the first steps is to consider the location of the schools you are researching.

If you want to find a school in or near your town, consider what length of commute you are willing to do to attend school and search for any massage schools within that distance. Your search will likely be between just a few local schools in your area.

If you are willing to relocate to attend massage school, your search will be much more broad. It will be important to figure out what the main factors that you are looking for are so that you can find schools that meet this criteria.
