Becoming a massage therapist can be a really rewarding career path. It may not be a common career choice but many massage therapists report high satisfaction in their jobs.

This quiz from the AMTA will help you determine if you'd enjoy becoming a massage therapist: https://www.amtamassage.org/career_guidance/CareerPathQuiz.html
Here is another common message I receive:

"Hey Steve I’ve been reading your articles and am very interested in going to PTA school , I just finished my Bachelor’s in Exercise Science. I’m struggling with deciding on what school and area to attend , would love to get your advice on this .

Sincerely,

Caleb Pedersen B.S.
Minnesota State University, Mankato"

Here is a recent question I received,

"Hey Steve, my name is Perry Moore from Mississippi and I am only 20 years old and I am already a Certified Medical Assistant. I wanted to go back to school this year to get a head start for the PTA program that becomes open next year. I am very confident in my abilities to be able to get into the program and I see myself doing this for a very long time because it is a very fascinating field to work in. I was read the qualifiers and all of them are something that I have. So I believe that’s another wonderful reason that I would go while I am still young back to school and pursue my dream and career job as a Physical Therapist Assistant."

I think it is great when allied health professionals make lateral moves and I always encourage anyone to do what they think will bring them more satisfaction in their careers.
Here is a great video for anyone interested in working in Physical Therapy or considering getting physical therapy treatment.

Enjoy!
