Increased awareness of the health benefits of massage therapy may be one of the reasons behind such rapid growth in opportunities. The United States Department of Labor estimates that between now and 2024, job opportunities for massage therapists are expected to increase 22 percent—a rate the Dept. of Labor calls "much faster than average" compared to the average job growth rate of 7 percent for all other careers.
But there is so much more to a career in massage therapy than job growth.
