Massage Therapist

Stress

You may be relieving other people's stress, but no one is standing behind you rubbing out your knots! Performing such a repetitious job can be very stressful, not to mention worrying about the gradual wear and tear on your hands (which you kind of need to keep in good working order if you don't want your massaging days to be numbered). Most massage therapists love what they do, but the job isn't entirely without its stressors.
