Fox Sports: Surprising Benefits of Massage Therapy

You’ve probably heard of massage therapy helping clients with a variety of ailments: sore muscles, back pain, injuries, and more. But apparently, according to Fox Sports, massage therapy has more uses than you might think. In an ongoing effort to out-perform their competitors, athletes—including NFL quarterbacks—are turning to massage therapists to help improve and increase hand measurement.

Massage therapy is increasingly being recognized for its numerous benefits. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, massage therapy employment will grow 23 percent from 2012 to 2022—adding close to 30,000 more professionals to this field, more than any other occupational growth. With the increasing demand for massage services, massage therapists have more career options than ever.
