3 coastal towns to consider for a travel assignmentTravel therapists enjoy the freedom of being able to detach themselves from the demands of traditional, permanent employment and instead explore new places to their hearts’ content. What better place to apply your skills and satisfy your love of exploring new sights and sounds than a coastal town? The fresh, invigorating sea breeze, the calming sound of the waves, the gorgeous vistas – it’s the perfect type of location to reflect and rejuvenate.

They can be within your field, for example, therapists with years of experience that work in your clinic or outpatient center. They can also be therapy professionals with experience in an area of specialization that you are interested in.
