Are there many job opportunities for a massage therapist?

I can answer this question for Germany and Thailand, I don't know the situation in the US. Generally, the better your education as a massage therapist the better your opportunities. There definetely is a growing demand for massage services and some people call it a "wellness boom". However, the other side is that there are much much more massage therapists out there now, and many more are being trained. So we're getting close to a saturation point. I think if you really like the work and are willing to study in your free time as well, then it's a great chance. If you just want to have an easy job where you can get to know lots of people chances are that there are enough people doing that already.
