James’ Journey to Becoming a Massage Therapist

James always knew he wanted to be in the medical field so he could make a positive impact and help heal others. He initially followed a path in nursing, but it wasn’t long before the long hours and stressful environment began to take their toll on his own health. James began researching alternative healthcare careers, and he discovered massage therapy as a possible option. He quickly enrolled in a massage therapy training program, which offered affordable tuition and the ability to complete the course in as little as a year. After passing his board exams, James now enjoys helping to heal others while working in a low-stress environment with a flexible schedule. He only wishes he had discovered massage therapy sooner!
