Odds of Getting In

Your chances of practicing are good; your chances of making this your sole source of income are not. Unless you work in a popular massage parlor, health clinic, or resort spa, you will almost certainly need some type of secondary income. Especially when just starting out and gradually building your client base, you will need to hold down some alternate type of employment. You may want to look into milking cows, as it utilizes many of the same muscles.
