INTERESTS & VALUE A person interested in being a massage therapist has to be willing to work hard and have irregular hours. Of course they also have to be willing to massage the backs of people whom they’ve never met. To some, that may sound gross, but that’s why soap was invented.
EDUCATION & REQUIREMENTS In high school, I would only need to take my required classes. There are no specific electives that would help me to reach this job. After high school, I would need to take at least ten weeks to ten years of college classes to teach me techniques on how to manipulate skin, muscles, and connective tissues.

ALL IN ALL… My dream job definitely fits my personality; and as long as my back up job allows me to paint and do what I love, I have no complaints.
