Employment of massage therapists is projected to grow 32 percent from 2020 to 2030, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics*. As the practice of massage is more respected and accepted by people as a way to treat pain and to improve overall wellness, the demand for message therapy classes will continue to grow. The demand for massage therapy will also increase as more healthcare providers understand the benefits of massage therapy and introduce these services within treatment plans. Many sports teams are more likely to hire massage therapists, that have completed a massage therapy program, to help with athlete injury prevention and rehabilitation during the sports season.
