So first, you need to think about the level you want to deliver your massage therapy to.
Once you've got an idea about that, you then need to decide on the kind of certificate that you want to be trained in. There are a number of schools locally that will be offering different types of training qualifications. The basic qualifications, the initial qualifications for a massage therapist are awarded from two bodies, one is called ITec and the other body is called VTCT.
You need to have a look at the breakdown of the syllabus for both of those courses and decide which one feels right to you. You then need to find an accredited training school locally. It will generally take you four to twelve months to train professionally as a massage therapist.
Once you've completed your qualification, you'll then need to also complete six case studies.

On completion of these six case studies, you can then start to build your practice up.
