Massage Therapist Resume

Updated on December 24, 2018

A massage therapist resume is a summary of your core strengths, abilities and past experiences.

When building a resume for a massage therapist position, you will need to consider the following tips:


Massage Therapist Resume Guidelines

● Limit your resume to one page in length unless you have more than ten years of experience in hand.

● It should be an error-free document. That is to say, if your resume is poorly-written, unorganized, and contains spelling errors, it will negatively affect your candidacy.

● Proofread your resume many times before sending. Have a friend, or family member proofread it.

● There are three different formats of resumes you can choose from i.e. chronological, functional/skills and combination. We strongly recommend writing a skill-based resume in order to get the fruitful results.
