Looking for massage therapist jobs? As a Licensed Massage Therapist, you have lots of career path options—all with different pros and cons.

One of the most common employment choices for massage therapists is to work for a massage company. There are perks to this—you don’t have to deal with the stresses of managing your own private practice, and when you work for a well-known company, clients come to you.

Each massage company varies in mission, clientele, and massage type, but in this article we’re going to tell you about the 5 best massage companies for massage therapists to work for.

Massage Therapy Jobs in a Spa

Massage Envy

With over 1,100 locations nationwide, Massage Envy is one of the most well-known massage chains. Each location is a franchise, so the management style and culture will vary depending on where you’re working. However, they should follow corporate guidance.

Working at Massage Envy will provide you with a regular schedule, a steady stream of clients, and the ability to leave work at work. You won’t have to worry about the finances of a private practice, as well as things like laundry and rent. You won’t have to travel, either. Massage Envy also provides training opportunities for their massage therapists.

 

Elements Massage

According to their recruiting videos, Elements Massage is focused on ensuring that their therapists are happy, healthy, and enjoy their work environment. With continuing education opportunities and encouraging therapists to trade massages regularly, they prove their commitment to their therapists.

Like Massage Envy, you won’t be required to travel around to different offices, and you’ll have the benefit of a regular work schedule. You won’t have to worry about overhead costs or the daily stresses of running a business.

As is common with franchises, management styles will vary between locations.

Again, the culture at each location will vary.
