The reasons people enter the field of massage therapy are as different as the practitioners themselves. Jacqueline Deschamps is a Rhode Island massage therapist who decided to attend massage school after helping her father through his bout with emphysema. Since graduating, she has started her own practice inside a chirpractic office, and couldn't be happier.
"I climbed in the bed behind him and gave him his last back rub," she said. "After a while, I asked him to lie down so I could rub his chest, and with my hands over his heart, dad went to sleep forever."
That’s when Deschamps decided to attend Spa Tech Institute in Westboro, Mass., where she earned a certificate in therapeutic massage. She then earned another certificate in Reiki, a Japanese treatment that involves moving good energy through the hands and onto the client.
