5 Reasons Why Adults Make Excellent Massage School Students

At DiscoveryPoint School of Massage, we see prospective students coming through our doors from all walks of life, and all age groups. Whether it’s a young adult preparing to start their first career, or a retiree looking for a fulfilling part-time occupation, we know that going to massage school is an excellent choice for the adult learner. Here’s why:

1. Maturity
A good massage therapist isn’t just a skilled, hands-on technician – a good massage therapist is also a great listener and insightful observer. These traits are much more common in adult students in general, and very common here at Discoverypoint since the average age of our student body tends to be 30 to 34 years of age. That means our younger students get to learn from the maturity of older classmates, and those elders get a big injection of enthusiasm and fresh ideas from the younger generation.
