Masseuse have a vast amount of options available for positions they might want to pursue after being certified and/or licensed.

More on Massage Schools

Local massage schools should be investigated before applying to them. There is also some other jurisdiction requirements needed before being able to practice as a masseuse. For one, you must check with the state of which you will be licensed in as to what the actual procedure is. The next step is to enroll in a good school that is regionally accredited. One of the biggest scams with fraudulent schools is that they will claim to be nationally accredited. There is no such thing as nationally accredited and these schools are not recognized by the top school associations. These schools are also false and are considered 'for profit' schools. Local massage schools are better to attend because they have a better chance of being legit. With online schools, it is important to take the right precautions before signing up with any of them. It is a good idea to ask other massage therapists what schools they went to and what the courses were like. Since the massage therapists career is starting to become more popular, the courses are being more expensive. The tuition can range from a couple of thousands and higher. Most schools that are regionally accredited should have financial assistance available to their students who are interested in taking courses. Some of this financial assistance should include federal student loans. Each course requires at least 500-600 hours of training. Students should be prepared to practice massages on a frequent basis. They should also be prepared to perform mock sessions. Students are often graded on not just the technique, but on how well they communicate with their patients. Masseuses can either get a degree or a certification. Both are great for breaking into the business. While all states does not require you to become certified to start practicing massages, it is highly recommended, especially if you want to work for a salaried position.
