Are you looking for a career as a Holistic Therapist? Do you find yourself fascinated with alternative medicine, Asian wellness treatments and spiritual healing practices? Do you have a need to help others? Are you interested in a more flexible working arrangement? If any of these ring true for you, then the decision to get a career as a Holistic Therapist may be the one for you. As a Holistic Therapist, you'll be opening yourself up to a wealth of opportunity and adventure. This vocation not only brings the rewards of helping others, it provides you with flexibility both in terms of hours worked and what type of organization you chose to work for, if any. If you think you might decide to get a job as a Holistic Therapist, you'll need to learn more about what the job entails, and what kind of organizations you should think about approaching for a job.
In this job, you will be a practitioner of a variety of different natural, spiritual and traditional healing methods. The methods you will need to be adept at include full body massage; sports massage, which is massage geared at stretching and massaging muscles before and after physical exertion, and also massage to alleviate sports-related pain and tension caused by injury; aroma therapy, which involves stress relief through scented essential oils; reflexology, where you will learn how to use pressure points on the body to promote relaxation and health; Indian Head Massage, which creates relaxation and promotes wellbeing through the manipulation of Chakras; and Hot Stone Massage, where the massage is administered with heated stones rather than the hands of the masseuse, among many other alternative treatments.
If you want to find employment opportunities, your first port of call should be trade journals, and related websites such as The Fitmap, or www.leisurejobs.com, and www.la-sourcejobs.com, which will list vacancies. Newspapers will also sometimes advertise such openings, though you may be better to enlist the help of a recruitment agency that specializes in the leisure sector. You can also keep an eye on the websites of health spas or fitness centres for vacancies. Sometimes the best course of action is to approach organizations you're interested in working for directly. Or you can set up shop in your own home and advertise the treatments you're offering in your local paper!
