TYSONS CORNER, Va., March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- We are pleased to announce the opening of the American Massage & Bodywork Institute (AMBI). AMBI was founded to provide an elite education to individuals who are interested in helping others achieve wellness through a career in massage therapy. With many years of combined massage and bodywork experience, the staff at AMBI is committed to ensuring that students who pass through our facility are given the most comprehensive education to start them on the best path to success. Students are educated through a unique hybrid program of hands-on bodywork experience and traditional classroom learning, supplemented by online education. AMBI is dedicated to producing the most work-ready massage therapists in the country, and to providing its alumni with the tools and resources necessary to succeed. The programs at AMBI are designed to be completed in as few as seven months!
With America becoming more health conscious, and focused on overall wellbeing of both the mind and body, there has been a growing demand nationwide for massage therapists. According to the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, the "employment of massage therapists is projected to grow 23 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Continued growth in the demand for massage services will lead to new openings for massage therapists." Massage therapy has been proven to improve circulation, relieve stress, help relieve chronic pain, and assist in healing certain injuries. Massage therapists are working in massage therapy clinics, spas, gyms, medical and chiropractic facilities, private practices, traveling practices, and physical therapy offices. With a vast array of positions available, and more appearing every day, the opportunities for properly trained massage therapists are almost limitless. Licensed massage therapists also enjoy great career portability with their ability to become licensed/certified in many different states.
"Massage therapy has become a gateway career to many people. We provide educational opportunities as a launching pad for students interested in advanced medical training such as nurses, chiropractors, physical therapists, and physician assistants. Massage therapy provides a great part-time income potential for these students while pursuing their advanced credentials to help offset some of their higher education costs. Massage therapy also provides these students with related field experience," said Scott Deidun, Co-owner, President and CEO of AMBI. "Massage therapy can also be a great second career for people who enjoy helping others feel better through the power of meaningful touch. We at AMBI encourage our students to pursue their career goals, and job placement services are provided to all of our graduates."
Those who are looking to diversify their practice also find themselves interested in massage therapy because of its in-demand nature. Personal trainers, yoga instructors, aestheticians, and dance instructors are learning to practice massage therapy to bring in new clients, and to further benefit their existing clients. Massage therapy is a fast-growing industry and there is already a shortage of licensed massage therapists to fill the current demands.
AMBI is conveniently located at 1593 Spring Hill Road, Suite 210 in Vienna. We are located on the Silver Line, two blocks from the Spring Hill Metro Station in beautiful Tysons Corner.
