I am not sure where to post this question, so I've x-posted it to a variety of places. I hope that is okay, if not, please let me know and I'll delete it.
I am looking into a career as a wellness spa therapist / esthetician.
What I'm wondering is, if any of you are working in the spa therapy field, and what it is like. Particularly in regards to salary, benefits, upsides and downsides of working in a spa. I am unsure if I will be making enough money to live on, if it is minimum wage with tips? Do you get paid for sick days, or days with fewer clients?
Would you think it surprising that someone with a B.A. in psychology would want to pursue this kind of career? I'm just not sure if it's all I hope it to be, and if I will be making a mistake.
Any advice, input about these concerns would be greatly appreciated.
