How to Become a Massage Therapist in Tallahassee Florida

Quite often, we’re asked what the best way to become a massage therapist is.

Our answer: get educated, get trained and become licensed. Massage therapy, whether practiced here in Tallahassee or elsewhere in the state can be a rewarding career for many people.

In fact, according to,

The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects employment in massage therapy to grow by 20% through 2020.  This is faster than the average for all occupations.  This projection is partly based on the growing number of spas that employ a large number of therapists.  Massage clinic franchises have also been increasing in number, making massage more affordable than what is typical at a spa or resort.  This has made massage available to a wider range of customers.
