Skilled massage therapists use the healing power of touch to help their clients. A typical workday for a massage therapist includes manipulation of muscles and soft tissue to relieve and manage pain, rehabilitate injuries, relieve stress, improve circulation and enhance overall well being.  Massage therapy positions could be found in hospitals, chiropractic and physical therapy offices, fitness centers, sports teams, resorts, wellness spas and massage franchises. A focus on wellness among Baby Boomers and Gen Xers means lots of job opportunities for massage therapists.
