Default Sponsorship in Australia

Hi,
Hoping someone can help me. I’m a beauty and massage therapist and I’m hoping to one day move to AUS if possible! I’m looking at getting a WHV next year and working 3 months on a farm to gain the second year and also do some travelling.

My job isn’t on the skilled occupation list but I have found ‘Massage Therapist’. Does anyone know anymore about this title? I am NVQ level 3 qualified in swedish and aromatherapy massage. I know I have to find somewhere that will sponser me if so. This is the description;

——————————
Massage Therapist

Performs therapeutic massage and administers body treatments for relaxation, health, fitness and remedial purposes.

Tasks
massaging the soft tissues of the body, such as muscles, tendons and ligaments, to assist healing
utilising a range of massage techniques to enhance sports performance and prevent injury
administering treatments to promote relaxation, improve circulation and relieve muscle tension
assessing and treating specific soft tissue dysfunction and providing rehabilitation advice
employing other techniques, such as acupressure or Shiatsu, and complementary aids, such as infra-red lamps, wet compresses, ice, essential oils and herbal and mineral therapies, to assist recovery
assessing client's physical condition and case history and advising on stretching exercises and relaxation techniques

Specialisations

Chinese (Tui-Na) Masseur
Remedial Masseur
Shiatsu Therapist
Sports Medicine Masseur
———————————

Would the apply to me? Or would I have to be trained in one of the specialisations? I would happily do a course in one of those if so.

Thank you !

Can you pass a skills assessment as a Massage Therapist? Do you have a diploma of Massage Therapy and are you registered with the CNHC?
