I have started my clinical internship on the weekends to become a Licensed Massage Therapist. That means that people come to the school and get an hour massage for $25 and then fill out a form to rate my performance. I have to do about 5 massages each shift until I have done 100 massages. I'll be done by March. Here's a 2-fer coupon. It's a super amazing bargain, and if you live in the DFW area, you should try it out. The students who are nearing graduation are masters.
My goal is to open a clinic or high end spa in a year or so to really help people with their body aches and stress. I know that it has been greatly beneficial to me in my career. Right after graduation, I can start a private massage practice and make extra scratch on evenings and weekends to get the money together. Using my hands and working on people is the perfect complement to sitting at a desk working on computers during the work day. I have a calm demeanor that allows me to work well with high strung people, and I would love nothing more than to help veterans with PTSD, because I know that massage therapy can settle the nerves and provide a sense of well being.
