What Should You Look For In A Massage Therapy School?

By Peter Faber

If you are considering engaging in a great career in massage therapy, let me compliment you on your selection. Massage is one of the few careers which aids individuals in need, allows flexible hrs, and for those who ambitiously pursue it, opens up the door to a lucrative income. Once you have decided on your career, your next big decision should be which school to attend. I have furnished a list of 5 valuable questions to ask yourself when analyzing the huge amount of therapeutic massage schools to choose from.

Question 1: What is the timeframe that it will it choose from beginning to end? Massage schools have a broad variety when it comes how much time must be invested to finish. Massage therapy schools can vary anywhere from 6 - 15 months, or longer. Keeping this in mind, you have to ask yourself two important questions in regards to the amount of time you place in your education. Remember, if you hurry through a program, you have a better chance of missing out on something. On the other side of the coin, you have to also weigh how much money you may lose if you have to spend 6 months to a year longer in school when you could be getting your income rolling.

Question 2: Will it be very expensive? Education tuition might vary anywhere from $6.00 to $17.00 per hour of education! The average usually falls around $9.00 or $10.00 per credit hour. If you are in an unlicensed state and want to join a quick program, you may actually be able to get the necessary 100-hour training for under $1,000. In licensed states, which require 500 hours, tuition usually ranges from $5,000.00 to $9,000.00.. Some schools include the cost of supplies, or even a massage table. Be sure to factor in what is included verses what you are called upon to acquire before you commit. For example, if one school costs $1400 and includes your table, it will end up being cheaper than the school which costs $1000, but requires you to purchase a table. Tables run an average of around $500.

Question 3: Will therapeutic massage school hours work with the rest of my loyalties? Virtually all schools are aware that the individuals who are attending their curriculum have other things to do as well. Most students have to hold down jobs while attending massage school, while others have children at home. Many schools offer programs designed to cater to the working adult. Check to make sure that the school you like offers a variety of schedules to meet your needs.

Question 4: How do I pay for it? When you compare the cost of becoming a licensed massage therapist verses the cost of a bachelors degree, you would save approximately $60,000. Even so, most of us do not have $5,000 - $9,000 lying available to place in an education. Hence, financial aid is important to consider. Keep the following in mind: All federal loans and grants for education can be paid only to students attending federally accredited schools. Look for a reputable accreditation, such as the Integrative Massage

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
