Just discovered some pretty interesting new information about the massage therapy industry as a whole. According to the American Massage Therapy Association, massage has grown to a $12-17 billion industry. Those numbers are up from $6-$11 billion back in 2005, which is a pretty drastic jump.
This goes to show you how much more popular massage is now than it was even just 6 years ago. And, when you think of all the massage franchises that you see popping up all over the place, these kind of numbers make sense. Especially in a bad economy, it seems as if people are looking for an inexpensive way to relax and fight stress, and massage is a great way to do both.
Plus, the attitudes toward massage seem to be changing. Years ago, you thought about getting a massage only when you were pampering yourself at a luxury resort in Hawaii. Now, people are beginning to understand that massage is a part of a healthy lifestyle, and there is real value in getting a massage at least once a month.
So, if you’re a chiropractor, salon owner, or fitness club owner, you may want to take a hard look at the numbers (and make sure you’re not missing out on this boom). And don’t forget, with HydroMassage, you can offer massage therapy to 30+ clients per day for a fraction the cost of hiring a massage therapist.
