Can I be a violinist and a massage therapist?

I'm still pretty young, and my two dreams in life are to be a massage therapist and learn how to play the violin. One down, I am now a massage therapist. When I was younger, I took a few violin lessons and loved it. My teacher said I had the most natural skill of anyone she had taught. Unfortunately, I had to stop the lessons not long after. But I REALLY want to know how to play.
My question is, since I didn't really play long enough to know; how does playing the violin affect your finger pads? Is it true that some people get rough fingers and others don't? As a massage therapist, I need soft hands so I don't scratch people up, and receptive fingers so I can tell where the knots and trigger points are. Is this possible if I play the violin? Is there any kind of glove I could wear to protect my fingers? I need them to be sensitive in order to be good at my job. If anybody has any suggestions or experience, I would love to hear it. Thank you for your time!

I'm both a massage therapist and a multi-instrumentalist (acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle). I've been playing guitar for more than 40 years, and the other instruments for 20 years plus. After all these years, I have thick, tough callouses on my left hand fingers but the callouses don't affect my ability to massage at all.

The callouses on my left hand fingertips are as smooth as my right hand fingertips and I've never had a massage client complain about getting scratched up by them (people do sometimes complain if I don't keep my fingernails filed all the way down, though). And my left hand fingers are just as good at finding knots and trigger points as the the right hand.

And as a guitarist, banjo player and mandolinist, my fingertip callouses are thicker than the ones you're likely to develop playing only violin. Violin playing doesn't really create much callous on your fingertips.

Bottom line: go ahead and learn violin, it won't affect your massage work.
