Massage Therapy student - Devante Thomas

Hi! My name is Devante and I am a student in the Massage Therapyprogram here at ASA College.I have always considered myself a people person, and when I learned a little bit about massage I thought this might be just the career for me! I heard it pays really well compared to many other programs and that in New York it is a licensed profession, meaning I can work for legitimate spas, gyms, cruise lines as well as starting my own practice - something I often dream about.

One of the best things about learning this trade here at ASA Collegeis my ability to learn with and from my amazing classmates and the experienced and patient teachers of Western and Eastern theories as well as the science of massage. Myology is the study of the muscles and Kinesiology is the study of the movement of the skeletal system by muscles.

What to Expect When Changing Careers

Moving from one profession to another at any time in one’s life is challenging. Particularly if the new occupation one has in mind is entirely different from their former occupation. Seeing as finding jobs without prior experience or skill is difficult, atempting do so on your own is even more stressful.
One harsh truth to bear in mind is that switching careers may be a risky affair for some individuals. For example, if you somehow manage to get invited to be interviewed but fail to land the job, and this process continues (eg. 6 to 8 months), one may be disheartened. One may even begin thinking it was a mistake to quit or that switching careers is impossible. Most individuals in their thirties and forties have families to look after, which means a career change is not to be taken lightly. One has to anticipate and prepare for the journey ahead.
