—-The Secret Is Massage Therapy—-
Becoming a massage therapist is a big decision to make and a rewarding experience. Because the industry is already being regulated, a career in massage therapy is harder to get into. You need training and licensure in order to work for yourself, a spa, a particular clinic or medical facility. This is especially true if you are aiming for those top of the line clinics that really pay well. One of the decisions that you have to make before getting into the field is what kind of massages will you be specializing in. Like the medical field, massage therapists have specializations.
There are various kinds of massages that are being done in clinics. Some are simple enough and only requires a specific set of strokes. Others are more technical and involve pressing certain pressure points in the body and using oils that are not usually used in the practice.
Examples of these are, swedish, acupressure, aromatherapy, shiatsu the list goes on. Before you get into the massage therapy business, know first what you are comfortable doing. If you study one massage and then realize that you are not for it, you will be wasting money and time on your training. At TBTMI, you are trained to do all massages, which will enable you find where your interest is and then specialise.
Below are some of the things that can help you clarify what you really want to do.
- Western against Eastern
Although there are a lot of different kinds of massages, they are divided into just two big groups– Eastern and Western.
-Ask yourself, are you more comfortable doing the more traditional medical model that is often the characteristic of western massages or are you more for the eastern types that makes use of essential oils and pressure points?
- Medical against Relaxation
The various kinds of Massage therapies may also be divided into either massages for relaxation or massage therapy for medical purposes. At TBTMI, we focus on the basic study leading to the licensure by the State,here you will study subjects such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, kinesiology and a lot of other science subjects. However, if you feel that you want to specialize, you can, after graduation with our extended 30hours specialization courses, while practicing massage therapy.
- Spas against medical.
The clients that you will be servicing will also help you determine the kind of massage therapy specialty you would like to take. For instance, if you foresee yourself working at a spa or a resort, your clients will primarily be those who just want a bit of relaxation. On the other hand, if you like to work in a medical office, nursing home or in a hospital setting, then you may want to get into something that is more medical in nature. This will be good for you to consider when making your decision.
- how hard can you do the massage–
Another consideration in choosing your specialty is whether you can take on the massaging itself. Remember that massages for relaxation is softer and more relaxed compared to those being done for people who have problems with their muscles and their bones. Also, when dealing with medical clients, you also need to be more precise with your massages.
