With a few exceptions, the types of massage therapists that are earning the highest wages in the industry are those that specialize in medical massage and sports massage. Medical massage therapy treatment is a relatively new form of massage therapy when it comes to mainstream medicine. While massage has always been regarded as a means of healing all types of illnesses in Eastern cultures, Western medical communities are now beginning to embrace the benefits of massage.
Massage therapy students can benefit greatly from taking a part-time job that will provide real-world work experience to compliment their studies. Any job that concerns human anatomy and physiology, massage therapy benefits, the benefits of relaxation, or the effects of long-term muscle tension can be important in the massage therapist’s career. This is especially true for students who intend to specialize in sports massage or medical massage.
|While most massage therapists are cross-trained in multiple areas of massage, some choose to specialize in a single type of therapy. These massage therapists spend the majority of their time training and practicing the art of a specific technique (or ‘modality’) on their clients. Some types of massage therapists have found that by focusing on a specific modality, they are better able to secure loyal customers.|
