As a massage therapist you have the opportunity to play an integral role in the health and wellbeing of clients, as you guide them through various service offerings for healing and relaxation and provide massage treatments. In your day-to-day, you gather client history, including information about any injuries, conditions or concerns, develop purposeful treatment plans, massage muscles and soft tissues in order to offer relief from medical conditions or to aid in wellness maintenance. You upkeep detailed and accurate treatment records and may consult with other healthcare professionals such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, physicians, and psychologists in order to support a client’s wellness goals.

You also have excellent communications skills, both written and verbal, and exceptional interpersonal skills. You have the strength and stamina to perform massages on a diverse range of clients and can stand for extended periods of time. Your compassion for people and desire to help them experience a greater sense of wellbeing is second to none.
