The format of a Massage Therapist Resume should call attention to your core strengths, abilities and past experiences.

You need to consider the following points when building a resume for a massage therapist:

● A resume for this position is normally one page long unless you have more than 10 years of experience within this field.

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

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

● There are 3 different formats of resumes you could choose i.e. chronological, functional/skills and combination; we strongly recommend a skilled based resume to get the fruitful results.
