I just graduated from a massage school in Minnesota and I was wondering if there are any of you that practice in this state. I'm interested in your experiences with starting out: hopes, dreams, fears, etc.
Also I'm considering moving to California but I heard the job market for massage therapists is slim and you are treated more like a criminal that a professional. Any comments would be very appreciated.
I just graduated and i live in california. It is pretty hard for massage therapist out here because it is not state regulated. Alot of places get shut down for the "happy endings" reputation, so true massage therapists kinda have a bad rep. But it sounds like things are coming around for the better. The state is working on having massage therapy regulated. The best thing to do if you do move out here is to have your nationals certificate, and be a member of the AMTA. There is another national massage orginazation, i just cant think of the name of it right now.
