Employment for massage therapists is expected to increase 20
percent from 2006 to 2016, faster than average for all
occupations. Employment will grow as more people learn about
the benefits of massage therapy and as many people demand
alternative healthcare.  This field is attractive for many people
who want to set their own hours, work from home and enjoy more
time with their family and doing leisure activities.
