Massage Therapists


The earnings of massage therapists vary greatly with the level of experience and location of practice. Therapists in New York and California, for example, typically charge higher rates than those in other parts of the country. Some entry-level massage therapists earn as little as minimum wage (ending up with a yearly income of around $20,800). Hourly earnings are much higher for experienced therapists. The American Massage Therapy Association reports that the average annual salary for a massage therapist in 2018 was $25,810 (including tips). Those with higher earnings typically worked in higher paying geographic areas (such as large cities), had years of experience, and had built up a large clientele.
