Good News for Aspiring Massage Therapists
Massage practitioners continue to see an increase in opportunities within the medical and healthcare profession as the integration of massage therapy and patient care continues to advance. According to the American Massage Therapy Association, just in the past year, the number of full and part-time massage therapist grew to 346,000 professionals—that’s a 3 percent bump. In addition, over 50% of consumers sought their last massage for medical or health reasons.
These trends offer promise for the many aspiring massage professionals looking to join this career. The Soma Institute in Chicago supports this field with their renowned Clinical Massage Therapy Program.
