Re: Massage Therapist | Advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Fox:

As a licensed massage therapist specializing in medical massage, I am uniquely qualified for the massage therapist position posted on Monster. I have spent six years as a member of the massage therapy team at XYZ Company, a medically directed health and wellness clinic combining the benefits of massage with the medical practicality of physical therapy.

Under the direction of a board-certified physiatrist, I provide manual therapy, deep tissue work and active-release techniques to improve patients’ muscular/nervous systems and circulation.

Privileged to work with patients spanning diverse ages and presenting an array of conditions, I help them recover from illness/injury, experience relief from chronic pain and enjoy a greater quality of life. Since joining XYZ, I have skillfully applied advanced techniques and modalities of scientific massage therapy to:

  • Assist in the rehabilitation of sprains, strains, fractures and dislocations
  • Help eliminate pain from neuritic, arthritic and rheumatic conditions
  • Stimulate the circulatory system to reduce post-surgery convalescent periods
  • Provide relief of muscle tightness caused by stress
  • Shorten recovery time for injured athletes
  • Relieve paralysis, insomnia, migraine headaches and other conditions caused by poor functioning of the nervous system

Throughout my tenure as a massage therapist at XYZ, managers have praised my therapeutic skills, ability to build relationships with patients, effectiveness in working with multidisciplinary healthcare teams and deep commitment to providing quality care. I am confident in my ability to serve your practice and patients with this same level of excellence—please contact me at (555) 555-5555 or email to set up an interview. Thank you.
