Sports rehab facilities: These are facilities dedicated especially to athletes who are undergoing rehabilitation after suffering from sports injuries, aches, and pains.

Spa facilities: This one is the most glamorous and luxurious of them all. A spa may not pay the best but is a good way to build your resume particularly if you were to join a luxury establishment. Many spa massage facilities are located within hotels. Many are private as well. There are probably more spa massage facilities than any other.
