Massage therapists can work in a variety of settings. It is the fastest growing Allied Health profession in the US. Massage therapists can work in chiropractor offices, day spas, health resorts, cruise ships, hospitals, doctor's offices, with sports teams, corporate offices doing onsite seated massage, with physical therapists. The list is endless, as so is the list of potential clients since massage has come into the mainstream of public health. More appointments have been made for massages than visits to primary care physicians, family doctors, for the past two years in a row.

There are many places where massage therapists might work. You might work at a massage parlor, fitness center, physical therapy office, spa, resort or at your own private office. Some massage therapists also have mobile businesses, meaning they travel to their clients' homes and offices to give massages there.
