Join the Patient Relaxation Team!
Massage Therapy Advanced Skills Residency
Develop your skills as a Licensed Massage Therapist in a structured, mentored setting, led by the award-winning LMTs of Patient Relaxation LLC.
We are looking for LMTs or students who are nearing graduation who have excellent basic massage skills, intellectual curiosity, and a strong desire to build competence in working with:
Clients with complex or serious medical conditions (cardiac conditions, surgery, life-altering disease or injuries, cancer, fibromyalgia, etc.)
Clients who are medically fragile (bruise easily, use oxygen, have medical implants or replacement joints, clot easily)
Clients with psychological, neurological, and/or emotional complications or fragility (PTSD, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, stroke, dementia)
This program is a paid residency. Resident LMT will be paid per massage performed, as well as for each hands-on training session. Resident will be required to do certain training modules (such as infection control, or working with people with fibromyalgia), and others may be determined by the preferences and strengths of the LMT.
You will be utilizing free continuing education courses through your AMTA/ABMP membership in conjunction with structured training sessions with the LMTs of Patient Relaxation.
Pay scale will be similar to that at massage chain stores and local spas, and will be dependent on experience, skill level, and education. Our clients also tend to tip generously.
Schedule and time commitment are subject to availability. Residency could be full or part time, but a minimum of three "shifts" a week are expected. Our office is open Mondays through Saturdays, and an example of a typical shift is 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. or 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Other blocks of time may be available, including Sundays.
