Are you looking for a career that allows you to help people find relief from everyday tension, aches and pains while offering excellent flexibility? Massage offers relief from ailments and helps enhance our general health and wellbeing.
Training as a massage therapist has the potential to become a new and rewarding career with the option to specialise in a particular field or area. Mobile massage is an increasingly popular service that offers all the convenience of a treatment at a time and location that suits the client. Mobile service massage is able to visit clients in their homes, workplace or even when they are travelling in their hotel rooms.
Massage Study Options
The basic qualification to be recognised as a massage therapist is the Certificate IV course in Massage Therapy Practice. If you are looking to advance your career further, then a Diploma of Remedial Massage can lead to a Bachelor of Health Science (Complementary Medicine). Most education providers offer the option of flexible study, with full-time courses or part-time study over a longer timeframe. Classes can typically be taken weekly or via intensive and/or distance learning options. Distance learning is more stimulating and interactive now that online resources are utilised more creatively.
