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.

I think it is fun.
If you are a people
person, this is the

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:

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.
