It’s ironic; doctors go into the medical field because they want to help people. But many people do everything they can to avoid seeing their doctors. What gives? It’s nothing personal—but it’s human nature to not want to be sick and in need of medical treatment. Now Massage Therapists on the other hand? That’s one person most clients can’t wait to see!
Think of it: as a licensed Massage Therapist, you get to help others by relieving their stress, reducing their pain, and promoting a healthier lifestyle. And they’re generally happy to see you! Not a bad way to spend the day.
We’re not surprised these hands-on folks are often so well-liked; at Daytona College, we see plenty of benefits to pursuing a career in Therapeutic Massage and Skin Care. For one thing, you have tons of options. Which industry suits you best—allied health or spa? You could put your Associate’s degree to work with the usual suspects: spas; resorts; or wellness centers. Or you could hop outside the box and find a position with a cruise line, business office or chiropractic clinic. Maybe you’re a diehard fan and you’d rather get in with a sports team; you could do that, too. The point is, you have choices.
Before you can decide where your career will lead, you’ll have to determine where it will begin. That’s where we come in.
