Career opportunities are numerous. A practitioner may set up their own practice, conduct workshops, work at a wellness center or teach holistic courses at an college.
The amount of money in this field depends upon the dedication and skill level of the practitioner, as well as how they intend to practice.
You do not have to be licensed to practice this therapy, but some states do require massage therapy licensing.
