Flexible schedule and possibility of very interesting income
Massage therapy is a wonderful field of work. The salary for a massage therapist is between $ 70 and $ 85 / hour in private practice and $ 25 to $ 40 / hour as an employee. Flexible working hours allow you to devote time to other passions and things in your life, such as family, hobbies, or sports or maybe another job.
In most workplaces, you can choose the number of days to work and the number of massages you want to do daily and thus create a schedule that suits you.
A self-employed, graduate massage therapist doing ten massages per week would earn about $ 36,000 per year, right at the beginning.
Not bad considering that basic vocational training only lasts five to ten months! Depending on where you live and your ability to build your business, you can earn even more by doing a job you love while helping people around you.
