700-Hour Massage Therapy Program in Vienna, Va

Massage therapy is becoming more recognized by mainstream medicine as vital to peoples’ overall health and wellbeing. As massage therapy is increasingly respected, additional facilities are employing Licensed Massage Therapists (LMTs) as part of their wellness team. This means extra patients have access to massage, and there is a larger pool of clientele to be had.

Massage therapists treat clients by using touch to manipulate the soft-tissue muscles of the body. LMTs can relieve chronic pain, help to rehabilitate injuries, improve blood circulation, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and aid in the overall wellness of their clients.

If you’re interested in helping people improve their quality of life, then a rewarding career as a massage therapist could be right for you. Become a part of the movement, help to reduce people’s stress and pain with the benefits of massage therapy.
