Find a place that offers alot of different body builds to gain experience on. You really gain confidence and knowledge as you work. Spas are nice, however they can limit you by only teaching you the basic skills needed for their particular business. Work with other therapists for awhile. Get involved with massage therapy programs (example AMTA) that promote your wellbeing. GET YOURSELF A MASSAGE ON A CONSISTANT BASIS so you can take care of everyone else. And above all, love the job yo
