Although the therapy is part of human history since the beginning of our journey on earth, unfortunately the area of massage therapy still suffers a lot of prejudice because of its not so well known labor market, however this prejudice has been changing in recent years with the increase of the number of adherents of this practice.
If you are interested in becoming a massage therapist, the first step is to seek a technical course in the area, this course usually lasts about a year and a half and in it you will learn numerous massage techniques that you can apply to your future patients. There are still cases of people who just want to specialize in a specific technique, for these people there is another alternative that is to look for a free course aimed at their preferred practice.
During these free courses you will learn isolated and specific techniques that best suit your profile. The free courses are considered important by those who already work in the area because they are usually decisive for the students to decide if they really want to become massage therapists.
