Massage Therapists employ a variety of knowledge and skills  to provide relaxation, comfort, and promote healing using a variety of techniques and modalities for clients in a variety of settings including spas, cruise lines, sports medicine, chiropractor offices, hospitals including labor and delivery, oncology, cardiac, and orthopedic units, health & fitness facilities, or as your own business entrepreneur!  According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for massage therapists is expected to increase by 23% nationally through 2022; making it one of the fastest growing professions, therefore adding medical modalities further increases marketability!
