Odds of Getting In

 
My teacher said this is good practice. (Source)

Your chances of practicing are good; your chances of making this your sole source of income are less good. Unless you work in a popular massage parlor, health clinic, or resort spa, you'll almost certainly need some type of secondary income. Especially when just starting out and gradually building your client base, you'll need to hold down some alternate type of employment. You could always look into milking cows, as it utilizes many of the same muscles.
