Massage Profession Metrics

Consumer research shows Americans who have tried massage have overwhelmingly positive feelings about their experience. Since the 1980s, the profession has seen dramatic growth in the acceptance and use of massage, increasingly across age, gender, economic and ethnic boundaries. Massage therapy is the leading service requested in spas and one of most-used forms of alternative/complementary medicine in the United States. ABMP estimates there are as many as 250 modalities in massage, bodywork and somatic therapies.
