Picture this: You’re graduating from massage therapy school, and you want to know that you’ll make a difference when you start on your career path. Rest easy! Massage Envy, a nationwide wellness franchise, is here to remind you just how meaningful your impact can be as a massage therapist.

(And if you’re looking for a great position to begin your career on the right foot, Massage Envy’s franchised locations are hiring massage therapists nationwide!)

1. You Increase Overall Wellness


There’s no better feeling than knowing that your work is bettering the lives of others, and massage therapists get to experience that feeling every day.

Massage provides a variety of wellness benefits, from reinforcing healthy and natural movements that can get your posture back on track (hey, sitting all day is tough on the body!), to significantly lowering heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels, all of which help reduce daily stress.

2. You Show People How They Can Better Understand Their Bodies


Having a session with a massage therapist can be a teachable moment for many people. Most massage first-timers have never thought about how their bodies are feeling, what works best for them, and which techniques they can use to help them do the things they love in life.

For instance, you may have a client who has dealt with tense muscles and poor posture, only to find that this is all due to a lack of effective stress management. By pointing out these signs, you’ll help someone become more in tune with his or her body.

3. You Help People Harness Their Own Healing Power


They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and as a massage therapist, you can help put people on the path to total body wellness with a therapeutic massage as a component of regular body maintenance.

And here’s an extra bonus: Regular massages can naturally improve your immune system, giving you incredible self-healing powers. Time to give yourself a high-five.

These are just three of the many ways you’ll make a long-lasting impact as a massage therapist. Looking for the perfect place to start off your career? Massage Envy’s franchised locations are looking for talented massage therapists, so apply at franchised locations nationwide now!
