Demand for qualified therapists drives the company's continuing education efforts
Houston, TX. As the massage therapy industry continues to rapidly grow, Massage Heights in Houston, Texas, is balancing the demand for therapists with recruitment and scholarship opportunities at Houston area schools. The Houston region of the national franchise and membership-based massage company that provides convenient and affordable massage and skin therapy is hiring at all Houston area retreats.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor in 2012, employment for massage therapists is expected to increase 20 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than average for all occupations. The increase is a result of an overall growth in popularity and demand in the industry, particularly among health care professionals, who recommend massage therapy not only as medical treatment, but preventive practice for health and wellness.
Houston Massage Heights Retreats are partnered with nearly all Houston area massage schools in order to meet the industry demand and recruit quality therapists who reflect the company's standards. The Houston branch also offers a full scholarship program in conjunction with the Texas School of Massage to 10 deserving individuals wishing to pursue a career in massage therapy.
J.D. Busch, Massage Heights' Houston and Dallas regional developer, describes the company's continuing education efforts as win-win. "Getting involved with massage schools is a chance to directly offer the opportunity for a dynamic new career," said Busch. "Jobs will be waiting for them. It's good for them and great for the industry."
