A Career Instead of a Job

Massage therapy is the career of the Millennium not only in spas, but with

doors opening into the health fields to add more avenues to find jobs.

Now more and more chiropractors, medical doctors, hospitals, and fitness

centers hire massage therapists, in fact, physical therapy offices are

required to have massage therapists on staff.

Of course, cruise ships have always been interested in massage therapists,

for a vacation with pay.

John Teng, Director of the European Massage Therapy School feels, “Many

students seek a massage therapy career because they want to help people.

Just like everything in life, you have to like what you do.

Massage therapy is a very giving career.

If you like helping

people, are good with

your hands,

have a kind heart,

this is probably

a good profession for you.

There is something about a bond between humans when you touch someone

it shows you care.

The massage makes them feel better.

On top of that, you have the techniques to really help your clients

physically, that is the beauty of the massage.

There are so many exciting treatments today, you are learning the latest.

I think it is fun.

You meet all types of people.

If you are a people

person, this is the

career for you.

Even with the bad

economy, people

always have aches

and pains,

they want to feel better and to be healthy.

It is a flexible career.

You can work as much or as little as you want.

Arrange your massage treatments according to your schedule for single

parents, those who have jobs, and if you are attending college.

There is also the possibility of being your own boss.

Massage therapy is not a 9 am- 5 pm job.

Our classes have different times during the day and evening:

Mondays to Thursdays from 9 am-1 pm and 6 to 10 pm.

Massage is not only science but art.

Our instructors teach all of the techniques you need to learn, like a painter

teaches you how to use your brush.

We tell you to create your own style, do what is best for you and for your clients.

John Teng, Director of the European Massage Therapy School

A Career Instead of a Job

 

 

This is not a cookie cutter school,

after you learn all of the techniques you

can be creative and flourish on your own.?

John Teng is not only the Director of the

European Massage Therapy School

but he began as a student then became

an instructor.

?When I first started massage school,

my intention was to de-stress myself

from my job without any intention of

 becoming a massage therapist but

once I started I fell in love with massage.

Learning about the body and how to take

care of the body made me feel

very natural when I started to

practice massage therapy.?

I felt, ?This is what I am supposed to do.

When you like your work it is so much

more interesting than being bored

and waiting to go home.

I love what I do helping people and am

still am a massage therapist part

time.

Here we have small classes,

so the students get more attention.

I am the school director, but I actually

 graduated from this school as well.

I am a shy person and the small class size

 made me more confident to ask

questions.

As a teacher, the small class helps me spend

more time with each student to

be certain they learn the techniques.

After students learn the basics,

they can always specialize in certain

techniques.

Some graduates just perform

Thai massage for a living.

Sports minded therapists may

wish to work in fitness centers, or become the

therapist for a sports team."

The European Massage Therapy School

is the most reasonable of all of the

other schools in Las Vegas.

For a free tour of the school and information,

 please call 202-2455. The European Massage

 Therapy School is located at 8751 West

Charleston Blvd., Ste. #295.
