The Massage Therapy Profession

Massage therapy is a highly rewarding career that uses practical application of the sciences, enlivened by the creativity of the healing arts. Compilation of data gathered by the American Massage Therapy Association® (AMTA®) from U.S. government statistics, surveys of consumers and massage therapists and recent clinical studies on the efficacy of massage, research estimates that massage therapy was a $18 billion industry in the country in 2018. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment for massage therapists is expected to increase 20 percent through 2020, faster than average for all occupations. NHITA equips graduates to be successful and competitive in this growing health care profession with a thorough and knowledgeable education.
