Do You Have the “Magic Touch” to Start a Career in Massage Therapy? 7 Reasons to Love This Job

Posted: October 7th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


There’s something intangibly pleasing about making people feel better.

Help others reduce stress in their lives and just plain feel good.

Massage therapists know how to untie the knots with healing hands

Join an industry expected to grow 23 percent in the next 8 years – train for a career in massage therapy.

As a massage therapist, the touch of your hands can refresh, rejuvenate and relax clients in a matter of an hour (and even less!). One of the greatest benefits of being a massage therapist is knowing that you are helping others heal their bodies and reduce the stress in their lives.  It’s a great feeling knowing that you are giving someone a better quality of life.

7 Reasons Why Massage Therapists Love Their Jobs (Letterman Style!)

(Here’s what massage therapists shared as their Top 7 on Sohnen-Moe and Associates blog)

7. The massage “look” –  it’s that half-dazed, feeling great in a surprised way look, and leaves clients moving a bit slower. 

6. Chronic pain relief – clients report relief from pain as they relax in mind and body during a massage.

5. Massage “miracles” - it may happen only a handful of times in a massage therapist’s career, but it’s the moment when a client says, “After all these years, it doesn’t hurt anymore.”

4. Appreciation – it stands out above all else . And a little goes a long way.

3. Repeat visits – having them come back! It also helps to build that ever-important relationship and a strong rapport. 

2. Honest work - massage therapy is one of the purest, most honest and decent ways to make a living because when you put good into the universes it comes back to you. 

1. All of the above! - a career in massage therapy provides a great service both physically and mentally. But the real reward is knowing that when the work day is done, a massage therapist knows they’ve made someone feel better that day. 

Some people enjoy massage because it often involves caring, comfort, a sense of empowerment and creating deep connections with their massage therapist. It also: (more…)

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Drenches IntelliTec College

Posted: October 3rd, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


IntelliTec College campuses rise to the Ice Buck Challenge to raise money for ALS

IntelliTec College campuses rise to the Ice Buck Challenge to raise money for ALS…see Facebook page for videos.

Press Release – For Immediate Release

Colorado – IntelliTec College answered the Ice Bucket Challenge with a number of staff members receiving an ice cold drenching in support of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Administrators and teachers from Colorado Springs, Grand Junction and Pueblo campuses stepped up to the challenge in support of this neurodegenerative disease.

“This was an opportunity to support a good cause, but more importantly to me, it was an opportunity to have fun as a team. After I was challenged, I in turn challenged others to join me; most did!  That’s what I call team support!” asserts Dr. David Scott, Campus Director at IntelliTec College in Grand Junction. https://www.facebook.com/pages/IntelliTec-College-Grand-Junction-Campus/262270505951

The challenge spread like wildfire, similar to the social media response. As departments began to both answer the challenge and challenge peers, it inspired other programs to come out in support of building awareness for ALS and other related diseases. 

“I am a huge supporter of increased awareness to support the families affected by managing their loved ones and their painful progression in disorders like this,” illustrates Andreas Nilsson, Campus Director at IntelliTec College of Pueblo. https://www.facebook.com/pages/IntelliTec-College-Pueblo-Campus/259583217794. ALS, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. It currently affects 30,000 people and strikes those between the ages of 40 and 70. (more…)
