February 22, 2016 By: Chad Category: Careers


Teacher Helping Student Training To Become Masseuse

More people are realizing that health is important, and that doesn’t just mean going to the doctor when something is already wrong. More people are adopting preventative services, and alternative therapies, to help keep themselves from getting ill in the first place.If you are looking for a rewarding career, you may be interested in one of the following jobs.

There are, however, plenty of other career options out there when it comes to feel good work. You could be a nurse, a doctor, a chiropractor, be an EMS, or a myriad of other options. But we’ll focus more on some of the alternative options.


Massage Therapist

Being a massage therapist can be a very rewarding career, and it offers up many options depending on what type of massage you are interested in doing. You can be a massage therapist at a salon, at a chiropractor’s office, or you could go into sports massage and work with athletes.

As with any trade, it costs money to learn massage, and you’ll need to buy supplies and such as well. You should also make sure that you look into what type of licensing you need in the state or country you live in.


Herbalist Or Aromatherapy

Herbalism and aromatherapy have both been around for centuries and are still well known to many people, Because of more companies making natural oils and more health food stores opening, more and more people are turning to these types of remedies these days.

When it comes to getting into this type of business, again you need to find out what the rules are where you love and if you need licensing. Even if you don’t need formal schooling on the subjects, it can help to take courses through an alternative school and get a certificate to prove that you’ve had some sort of formal training.


Fitness Coach Or Personal Trainer

If you are a really motivational person and you enjoy physical fitness, you may want to look into becoming a fitness coach or personal trainer. This is yet another future career in which you want to look into licensing and certifications. Some places will just hire you in off the street, but it can help to have knowledge of anatomy and physiology.


Wellness Coach

Wellness coaches do a lot for people. They can help them to teach people how to deal with things like stress, anxiety and depression. They can also teach people how to live a healthier lifestyle. It’s kind of a broad job, and some will specialize. Most coaches get certified through an online program, and most places don’t have any kind of restrictions or licensing yet for this type of career.
