"In my opinion...  I don’t think an inexperienced therapist should charge $150.00 to $300.00 an hour.  The person originally asking this question was a student.  "

"In New Hampshire if you accept any kind of payment for a massage as a student you can never, ever get your massage license.  You may or may not need a business license.  It depends upon your state in question."

"Bad or good idea?  more times then not listing massage on craigs list can be implied as sex by the reader.  All to often those that respond don't show for the appointment.  That has been my own personal experience. Now if you…"

"Yes, thank you. I see myself as a therapeutic therapist as it is more my personality and fits my interests better. BTW, I just got my license on Weds! Soo excited to start working next Monday!"

"In a sense I agree with Gordon.  to an extent either one can do both jobs to some extent. A good relaxation massage should put the client to sleep.  You should be able to hear them snoring away on your table.  You might even feel…"

Competition among therapists question

As a student massage therapist, I have been wondering about the competitiveness in the real world as a massage therapist. Is there a lot of competition for clients? My class is less than a week away from finishing school. However, I am finding myself having to ever so slightly distance myself from my fellow classmates as once we are out of school, we would technically be competing for clients. Am I over thinking this or what? See More
