AMTA's fifth annual summary research on the state of the massage therapy profession indicates the massage therapy marketplace is showing signs of improvement. Consumers are getting more massages, there are more massage therapists and they are making more money per hour than last year. The research also shows massage therapists are increasingly working in health care, one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy, both as massage therapists and as other health care workers.
A detailed report focused on the meaning of the research for massage therapy schools and their students was released and discussed at the AMTA 2012 Massage Schools Summit in Chicago. For a more detailed report, read the full press release.
