Olympia Massage School Graduates Work in Multiple Settings
It is rewarding to talk with massage school graduates and learn where they have gone once they have graduated from Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage.
I am often asked where graduates from Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage go when they graduate. This is always a great question to answer during interviews. Our massage graduates are prepared to work in a variety of settings.
Massage School Business Education Model
If we consider that our massage school program prepares students with a minimum of 100 hours of business training during school, it’s not a surprise that many graduates open their own private massage clinics in the surrounding neighborhoods.
The 100 hours of business training at Bodymechanics includes market research, massage demand, and business plan creation to name a few. This training is important to the success of our graduates and is something we take very serious. I’ve often heard from graduates around the country of other massage programs (and even read them on the internet) and a major complaint of most graduates is that they were not prepared for running their own business upon graduation.
For example, Bodymechanics School owner, Shari Aldrich, LMP opened her own clinic in West Olympia right out of school in 2006. School business preparation – along with a determination to succeed – prepared Shari to launch a successful clinic that now boasts 8 different LMPs out of Integrative Health Clinic.
Nancy Allen, LMP graduated from Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage and is now the owner of Massage Envy in Olympia. She also had her own private practice in Olympia before deciding that owning the Massage Envy franchise was the best choice for her and the community. Thousands in our community have been exposed to massage through exceptional massages at Massage Envy.
Wayne Johnson, LMP works out of Integrative Health Clinic and is also an instructor at Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage. He regularly performs over 30 massages a week and has branched out into offering massage related products to students and professionals in the area.
There are hundreds of similar stories of our massage school graduates who have gone on to open highly successful clinics all across the country. Our graduates include MDs, RNs, Physical Therapy Assistants, LPNs, Personal Trainers, Athletic Trainers and others from all walks of life. They all come into the program with a strong desire to help others through massage therapy – and they all leave with a deep understanding of how to help, and to create the massage practice of their dreams.
Massage practitioners work in a multitude of settings. Such as:
- Chiropractor offices
- Private clinics
- Home visits
- Or a combination of a couple on this list
The beauty of our massage education is to prepare graduates for success through our business training. We like to stimulate and cultivate ideas, and enjoy reading business plans created.
By discovering niche markets and encouraging students to follow their dreams, the sky really is the limit when it comes to where our graduates work and the settings they find themselves in after graduation.
New programs have launched at our massage school to help students further explore different settings to identify niche markets. Our Advanced Training Program exposes students to 5 different settings – while meeting the needs of massage requirements of our program. Stimulating, exciting, rewarding, and practical training – all part of our cornerstone massage education.
