U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics for Massage, Skin Care and Mental Health

Care and Mental Health

n behalf of SWIHA Success Center, we thought it would be nice to share some current statistics with you, just in case you are curious as to where you, or the industry you are interested in, currently stand!

Massage Therapists

  • Personal care services – A small increase is expected due to an increasing number of dedicated massage clinics in the personal care services industry.
  • Offices of chiropractors – A small increase is expected as massage therapy and bodywork are integrated into wellness treatments.
  • Hotels (except casino), motels, and all other traveler accommodations – A small increase is expected as more hotels offer massage therapy services.
  • Fitness and recreational sports centers – A small decrease is expected as fewer sports centers employ massage therapists.
  • Offices of all other health practitioners – A small increase is expected as massage therapy and bodywork are integrated into wellness treatments.

Notice that the term “bodywork” is being used in addition to massage therapy!

Skin Care Specialist

  • Personal care services – A moderate increase is expected as skin care establishments expand faster than the industry as a whole.
  • Offices of physicians – A small increase is expected as more doctors, primarily those involved in cosmetic procedures, employ skin care specialists.

Please understand that we do NOT train “Counselors;” we provide solid ground in Hypnotherapy Training & Life Coaching Training as growing career paths.

Mental Health Counselors

  • Outpatient mental health and substance abuse centers – A small increase is expected as these workers are preferred over more expensive psychologists.
  • Residential mental retardation facilities – A very large increase is expected as these workers are preferred over more expensive psychologists.
  • Offices of mental health practitioners (except physicians) – A moderate increase is expected as these workers are preferred over more expensive psychologists.
  • Offices of physicians – A moderate increase is expected as these workers are preferred over more expensive psychologists.
  • Services for the elderly and persons with disabilities – A small increase is expected as these workers are preferred over more expensive psychologists.
