I am excited to announce our new Connections Newsletter. I am Maria Leonard the Network Dean of Massage Therapy. The Connections Newsletter will give the reader insight into what is happening in the massage world; both at our school and out in the public venue. We continuously work to keep our massage program competitive and current with the needs and demands of the massage clients our students will serve as massage therapists. The Newsletter will be distributed via email.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics massage therapy jobs are expected to have 19% growth between now and 2018. The Bureau of Labor Statistics further states that the mean annual wage across the nation is $39,770.00 per year. This is an industry that is growing and we are excited to be training future massage therapists for a career in this amazing growth industry.
In this quarter’s newsletter you will get a glimpse into what our students do to help the community through massage therapy and you will learn about one of our nationally known massage instructors. I look forward to sharing even more exciting stories and articles with you in future volumes.
