Difference Between Clinical and Spa Massage Therapy

Difference Between Clinical and Spa Massage Therapy

As a massage therapist, you have many career options available to you. You can work as a massage therapist in a spa setting or choose a job as a clinical massage therapist.

What is the difference between clinical and spa massage?

As a massage therapist in a spa setting, you provide a relaxing and peaceful environment, ensuring a positive and pleasurable experience for your clients.

As a clinical massage therapist, your main focus is on functional outcomes with measurable results.

General massage education will allow you to work in a spa setting; however, to be a massage therapist in most clinical settings requires additional specialized training and credentials.

Since spa massage and clinical massage have different purposes and techniques, as a massage therapist you will interact with your patients in different ways based on your massage setting.

Whether you choose to work in a spa setting or clinical setting, as a massage therapist you need liability insurance for massage therapy that protects you and your practice, and covers everything you do!

The American Massage Council (AMC) offers the most affordable and reliable professional liability insurance for massage therapy coverage that checks all of your desired boxes.

Having professional liability insurance for massage therapy with AMC will offer peace of mind that you will be protected in your day-to-day massage practice so you can do what you love, helping others.

At the American Massage Council, we believe the more we help you, the more you will help others.
