Massage Therapist-one of the 5 hot careers now.
Most people become massage therapists because they believe in hands-on healing. Some mix in massage therapy with an existing career in healing arts to add a part-time income. Or, you may just be tired of corporate America and ready to follow your dreams. Employment of massage therapists is projected to increase 20 percent through 2016, meaning that the profession is being rapidly absorbed into mainstream American health care. You'll find jobs with existing practitioners, chiropractic offices, spas, hotels, athletic organizations, and clinics. Each state has its own set of licensing requirements. The median annual salary for massage therapists in 2011 was $ 53,000.
Letter from the President of AEMC, Inc.
Thank you for visiting our website. I know you are in the process of searching for the right school to start your career in the growing massage business and need to find out as much information about us as possible. American & European Massage Clinic, Inc. was founded in October 1995 and the training in Massage Therapy was started in December 1995.
It began as the personal training for just one or two students at a time at the Clinic. In 1998, AEMC acquired the additional space needed for regular classes. Public service at the Clinic by our professional and licensed massage therapists is the best representation of business to the students. Our school is a part of the massage school community, and like the others, is approved by the North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy. Our school number is 21. AEMC is a National Certification Board registered School and our number is 034002. AEMC is an American Massage Therapy Council of Schools and our number is 189262.
We provide 500 hours of training in Russian Medical Massage which includes theoretical training in anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Students will receive practical training in massage modalities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Sports, and Reflexology. Also included is training in ethics, developing a successful business, and Oriental (Eastern) massage therapy.
AEMC distinguishes itself in having a low student to instructor ratio. The small class sizes allow instructors to provide more personalized attention and detailed instruction. This, in turn, helps students to progress more quickly and have a better understanding of massage therapy.
Please feel free to call us and set up an appointment to tour our facility and more importantly, talk with some of our current students. I am confident you would talk to happy students! Good luck with your search!
