“The massage therapy field is growing,” said Katie Fox, Massage Therapy Program Coordinator/Instructor. “Employment of massage therapists is projected to grow 23 percent through 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Continued growth in the demand for massage services will lead to new openings for massage therapists.”
