Most new therapists never consider opening a clinic structured around a collaborative, team-based approach to massage. But this can indeed be a viable career option, and is for a growing number of therapists. I spoke to one of these therapists, who runs a successful massage therapy clinic, about the advantages, disadvantages, and challenges in creating and running this type of organization. The therapist-owner described in this article is a well-known figure in the massage therapy field. Out of respect for this therapist's desire to not make the focus of the piece about her, but rather about the business platform and the opportunities it offers therapists, the names of the clinic, the therapist- owner, and the quoted individuals have been altered. The stated facts and quoted words, however, are accurate. Why Opening a Massage Therapy Clinic Could Be a Viable Career Path for You BIGGER dream By Bob Benson
