I'm from NY & am considering moving to the charlotte area in a few years and wondered whether anyone has any feedback on the availability of therapeutic careers, more specifically massage therapy, but also anything in that family (occupational or physical therapy, etc.) how lucrative can those careers be and what's the average someone can make? also.. same questions for personal training... thank you so much

My wife just started a job as a massage therapist at one of the nicest spas in Southpark (an upscale part of Charlotte).

Her pay is about $30 per massage plus tips. The problem is that she sometimes works 6 hour shifts with only doing 1 massage. I tell her that on those days she could make more money at McDonalds.

Most places also do not pay for insurance. So I really dont see how people can do this unless they have a spouse that is making lots of money, or, they have enough people to to give massages to on their own for 80-90 per hour and use that additional income to suplement what they get working at the spa.

I guess you dont go into those types of jobs for the money.

thanks very much. i figured it worked that way in nc since it works like that in ny. i just wondered how much people go for massages in the charlotte area as compared to ny. but i guess since there's more people per capita here, there should be less down time here. thanx again for the info. and ur right, on super slow days you prob could make more at mcdonald's! lol!
