entertainment industry coach question 258: I want to be a set massage therapist. How do I do that?

You must give ME 100 massages.

Okay, that’s not the real answer, but I sure wouldn’t mind it. I don’t think there’s a union for set massage therapists, but I’d check with IATSE, just to be sure.

All of the tools I share with other classifications who want to work on sets apply to you, too:

  1. It’s who you know, so build relationships with people who work on sets and can get you on.
  2. Market yourself, and create a “buzzy” hook, so you’ll be memorable.
  3. Brush up on your interviewing skills.
  4. Find other successes set masseuses and model them.
  5. Network, network, network!
