Why Choose Oregon for Massage Therapy Schooling?

Why Choose Oregon for Massage Therapy Schooling

If you already live in Oregon you don’t need me to tell you what an awesome place it is to live. If you’re moving there, you’re not alone as it’s one of the most moved to states in the US.

It gets a bad rap for raining a lot, although it’s not as bad as people make out. You get a good slice of all four seasons across the year which is something I really enjoy.

It’s a great choice to train as a massage therapist. It’s not competitive and there are plenty of opportunities to start your own business or find work in the state.

So, why not take the first step today and contact a school in an area near you. They will be able to advise you of the best course of action.
