 Massage Therapy Ranks in 50 Best Careers of 2011 
 
by Pacific College of Oriental Medicine - 10/15/2011
San Diego, CA – Massage Therapy has made the cut for “The 50 Best Careers of 2011” according to U.S. News & World Report. The 50 professions made the list based on job-growth projections, salary data, and other factors like job satisfaction and quality of life. “Massage Therapist” is a new addition to the rankings, categorized under healthcare. Other chosen professions listed under the healthcare umbrella included: athletic trainer, dental hygienist, lab technician, occupational therapist, optometrist, physician assistant, physical therapist, physical therapist assistant, radiologic technologist and registered nurse.

“As massage therapy becomes more popular, employment is expected to grow faster than average—19 percent between 2008 and 2018, according to the Labor Department. Although this industry certainly hasn''''t been spared the wrath of the recession, more spas and massage clinic franchises are popping up to meet increased demand for massage services, creating new openings for therapists. Massage therapists held about 122,400 jobs in 2008, and more than half were self-employed.” –US News & World Report

Each ranking provides a breakdown of the profession, including outlook, average earnings, activity/stress level, and education standards. An ending quote from a licensed massage therapist emphasized the importance of a strong education in order to build a successful practice.

Pacific College of Oriental Medicine offers programs in Massage Therapy & Asian Bodywork, where students can earn a certificate, Associate’s, or Bachelor’s degree. With three campuses across the U.S. in San Diego, New York, and Chicago, they are dedicated to providing the highest quality education for acupuncture, Chinese medicine, and massage.
