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.

Licensed Massage Therapists Enjoy Specialization and Varied Career Opportunities?

Many working professionals are going back to school to earn their degrees in massage therapy. Career opportunities in massage therapy continue to open, so many people are changing careers in order to enter the field. For people tired of working in an office job, massage therapy provides an opportunity to pursue what the love. Licensed massage therapists have the opportunity to specialize in one area of massage, work with a practice or even to open their own clinic. Before they've even earned their licenses, most therapists choose a particular area of massage to specialize in. They will continue to practice this type of massage throughout their careers, often joining practices that are already dedicated to the same field. Some licensed massage therapists choose to work in the traditional form of Swedish massage, which is a basic form that focuses on relaxation. Other therapists choose deep tissue massage or sports massage, which is the best kind for people who suffer from chronic pain or injuries. After choosing a particular type of massage, licensed massage therapists will often go on to work in an already established clinic with other therapists in the same field. These clinics are a great opportunity for a therapist looking to begin building his or her career. Working with other therapists is a great chance for an individual to learn more massage, while also enjoying the same type of job security that a traditional office job could provide. Additionally, therapists working in a clinic may have the opportunity to see how the clinic runs before trying to open their own practice. Other licensed massage therapists choose to open their own clinics right after they finish their certifications. Therapists who open their own practices often have an entrepreneurial spirit and are not interested in working for someone else. Though there may be more risk associated with the business aspect of the clinic, owning a practice can be a rewarding opportunity for therapist to build his or her own company. Many licensed massage therapists choose this path because it allows them to immerse themselves even further in promoting the art of massage.
