Quitting Medicine For Massage Therapy

Jeffery A. Flint left his career as a Doctor of Osteopathy and became a massage therapist. He says he really likes treating people biomechanically rather than chemically.

"I like to do work, see the results of that work and then go back and advance the work," he says. "That’s what you get to do as a massage therapist.

Flint says his massage school experience was "the first education I had in my life — everything else before that was training.

Flint says he has no regrets about leaving medicine. "Massage therapy work is incredibly interesting. The same person coming in four times in a row will be a different client each time because they’ve changed from the last therapy. That’s the reason I love it. It’s never boring, it’s always a challenge and the more I know about it, the more I realize how much of a challenge it is," he says.
