Job title: Spa therapist
“I became interested in sports massage during my college course and I’ve since expanded my skills and knowledge by studying for additional massage qualifications. I now have an interesting job working at a spa, where I help clients to destress and enhance their general wellbeing in a lovely calm atmosphere. Professional massage can benefit clients both physically and mentally, and it’s very rewarding to see positive results.
“The great thing about the fitness industry is that most qualifications are recognised globally, so it’s possible to work abroad. I’m a keen snowboarder and using my sports massage techniques to help snow sport athletes would be another alternative I’d consider, perhaps in Austria or Canada. There’d be plenty of opportunities to use my personal training qualifications too.”
