Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP) conducts a census of all state-approved #massage programs every two years, and recently completed its #analysis of 2020 #massageprogram results and #trends.It is an understatement to say that #2020 was a year like no other, and while that reality is reflected in the results we received, as well as the comments and stories we heard from #schools, the results show that the majority of #massagetherapy schools showed #impressive resilience in the midst of the hardships of the past year.ABMP’s census was conducted January 2021–March 2021, during which time ABMP representatives attempted to contact 965 programs. Of that number, 70 percent of approved programs responded to the survey; nearly 50 programs had closed. Those who were reached (and still in operation) were asked, “How many students #graduated from your primary massage program in 2020?” Using state and program data, we projected #results for the segment of schools we did not receive an answer from.According to the results of the survey, the number of massage therapy #trainingprograms in the United States, and the number of #graduates from those programs, has declined from our 2018 #survey. Combining survey data and projections, #ABMP estimates there were 20,598 graduates from 919 programs in 2020, putting the average number of graduates per school at just over 22 students.These are the lowest numbers we have seen since 2000, down from 23,877 graduates from 965 schools in our 2018 survey.Given the #environment for the country generally, and in-person #education specifically, these numbers are a testament to the #hardwork, #perseverance, and passion displayed by the #owners, #faculty, and #students at these schools. ...
