Moving to Switzerland in the fall

Hello all!!!!

I have read a few posts, and I am very excited to both join EF and to move to Switzerland! I have dual citizenship to Switzerland and the US thru my father. I have never even been to Switzerland, but have always wanted to travel there and meet distant relatives that I have yet to meet. No one will ever travel with me, so I've decided to move there myself. I want to work, and explore and LIVE!

However, my father thinks that I won't earn enough money to support myself. I am a massage therapist. Does anyone know how much a massage therapist earns in Switzerland?

I've done Google searches and can't find an answer that way. I've been reading on other posts about budgets and things, so I'm on my way to knowing what I'm going to be spending monthly, but I don't know what I'll be earning.
Thanks in advance for any advice!!!!

Re: Moving to Switzerland in the fall

Hi there. Well, I see no-one more learned on this subject has made a posting, so I`ll give you what little I know on this subject.

I guess, it all depends on whether you will be self-employed or work for a company... and how good you are in your treatments. I`ve noticed that prices seem to vary between Sfr90 to Sfr200 per treatment which lasts about an hour.

My only experience of this nature is the amount of Swiss who flock to SA for treatments by a friend of mine in this business - he is exceptionally talented at curing all sorts of ailments .. and he charges ZAR300 per treatment which is about Sfr45 (exchange rate? I not sure now) and they all rave how cheap that is, even with the airfare, and they book him repeatedly for when they take their holidays there.

Re: Moving to Switzerland in the fall

Hello, and welcome to the forum from a fellow US citizen!

I'm not sure what massage therapists make myself - if you by chance find some info on careers in Switzerland, I'd be curious to see what doctors and financial analysts make. Would you mind terribly sending me a message?

Hi & welcome to the EF!

Hope you find the info you need on salaries and stuff, but you should do fine over here ...

To which part of Switzerland are you planning to move? Is it the same area from which your father came? Which language(s) do you speak? Can you count on these family members of yours for a bit of support, or will you really be on your own once you hit Switzerland?

Have fun anyhow, and hope to see you in Switzerland soon!
