Massage and Wellness Degrees
Massage and wellness degrees are on the rise as the demand for these services sky rockets across the nation. Depending on which career training path you take, your work hours and location can change drastically. Hospitals, shopping malls, spas, nursing homes, doctor’s offices, malls, your own home and even clients’ homes can become your office. Working part time and full time can also vary whether you are a nutritionist, massage therapist, chiropractor or reflexologist. One thing does remain the same: you have devoted your life to ensuring the health, wellness and comfort of human beings, which is constantly rewarding.
Depending on which concentration you choose the amount of school can change as well. Becoming a chiropractor requires a doctorate degree however a massage therapist usually only requires a state license, which usually only takes about two years. In some cases, you can earn a massage therapy certificate in a year or less. Occupations as a dietician, nutritionist or in the fitness field will most likely require a bachelor’s degree. A newer bachelor’s degree program has also been created at some schools with the rise of healthcare costs and wellness programs within the workplace: This program is an online Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness Management that will focus on work site wellness management.
