Darris, RMT / Massage Therapy Graduate
"I was looking for a rewarding career, something that would give me satisfaction."
Once I knew I wanted to go back to school for Massage Therapy, it was not something I wanted to sit on. So, I planned it out. Looked at the dates and Robertson was really good because they had different start dates and programs. I knew I would also have to be working at the same time so I needed something that would let me balance everything.
It's nice when you meet people that have same goals and interest and you just connect. There were a couple of people in this class that I was able to do that with.
Class sizes were good and that's something I really appreciated because you knew you got the attention that you needed. If you had a question and it would be answered. Now, I'm working as a Massage Therapist, I have regular clients. My dad's had problems with his knee. Ended up going for a knee surgery and then being able to see his x-rays and understanding what the doctor's writing up and seeing the diagnosis, it's been helpful because it's helpful to treat him. And I know now how to help him whereas before, I wouldn't have been able to.
Especially in the position of being a new graduate or just a therapist in general. There is high demand for massage therapists everywhere!
