Deliver the Power of Healing after Trade School Training in Massage Therapy
For those who love working with their hands and working with people, a career in massage therapy could be a great fit. Trade schools offer massage therapy training programs, instructing students in human anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, gerontology, and more. Specialty courses are also available for students looking to practice in specific areas like sports medicine.

Many states require massage therapists to pass a license exam before beginning to practice. Trade school programs can help prepare students for these exams, and although accreditation may vary, many programs culminate in preparation for the National Certification Examination for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCETMB), a common state requirement.

Massage therapists work with patients to alleviate muscle pain and rehabilitate after injuries. Part of a massage therapist's work is clinical, and other elements include medical billing, scheduling, set-up, and ongoing training.

Job Growth Predicted for Qualified Massage Therapists
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that massage therapists will enjoy faster-than-average job growth until 2016. Massage therapy is growing in popularity, as more people learn about the health benefits of this type of care.

Massage therapists typically work at spas, resorts, in private practices, hospitals, health clinics, and independently. most positions are available at established locations, although some massage therapists establish their own client base after gaining experience.

The Bureau reported that massage therapists earned a median hourly rate of $19.19 in 2011. It also reported that 15-20 percent of a massage therapist's income came from tips, except for those who worked in healthcare settings.
