Lets Talk About Sports Therapy Massage

Mark asks…

Equine Sports Massage Therapy?

When does your advanced experience with horses have to start? I’m 16 and have some experience with horses but am thinking its a little late? Also, I took A-Levels and not an equestrian course or massage course so is it too late or can I do it after sixth form??
Thankyou for all advice and any extra tips! :)

admin answers:

So much human trauma and misery in the world and people want to massage horses?! Why don’t you train in something that helps children maybe?

Maria asks…

What can I do to start a home-based massage therapy business?

I would like to start a home based business for massage therapy with Swedish massage, Deep Tissue, Chair massage, and Sports massage. Can anyone tell me some advice and tips on how to start?

admin answers:

Are you already trained as a massage therapist? If not you are going to need to get some formal training. Then you need to check with your state if you require a permit. The next step would be to advertise your services maybe in the local newspaper or craiglist. Ofcourse you will need to invest in your different massage lotions and another great addition would be some business cards you can distribute to people you meet. Oh I almost forgot the massage table especially if you are based out of your home.

How can I do a massage therapy cover letter?

I have my certificate of massage therapy, and some of the classes were reflexology, sport massage, phatology, chair massage and ect

admin answers:

Where are you applying for a job? A spa? Doctor’s office? Gym? You’d make a little different per each setting. You’d outline your education, experience, expertise in the areas you mention above, and state why you’d like a job for each of the different areas like spa, dr office, gym.

Something like:

Dear Mr. Smith,
