Current statistics show that the field of massage therapy continues to expand, offering solid benefits for those seeking a rewarding career in health care.
In addition to private massage practices and spa settings, you’ll now find massage therapists on cruise ships, in corporate wellness centers, at your local mall, employed by sports teams and fitness centers.
Massage therapy is also increasingly part of integrative care in leading hospitals such as the Mayo Clinics, in hospice care, in a variety of integrative care clinics, wellness centers and physicians’ practices.
Today, Americans not only seek massage for relaxation, they increasingly look to it for therapeutic treatment of medical conditions. That’s because research studies prove it can effectively help treat a wide variety of health issues such as high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, and low back pain.
“With their training as massage interns in an integrative medical clinic, National University grads are well positioned for taking advantage of the growing opportunities for MTs in medical venues,” says Dr. Randy Swenson, NUHS vice president for academic services and dean of the NUHS College of Allied Health Sciences.
National University’s massage therapy program prepares students to excel in any massage setting, developing a rewarding career by helping others. See stories and videos on what some of our NUHS massage therapy graduates are doing now. It’s also a great time to make plans to attend our Massage Therapy Information Night, held on Wednesday, July 15th.
