In recent years there has been a push towards natural medicines and non-chemical treatments for non-life threatening illnesses. Massage and bodywork provide medicine free treatment for a wide spectrum of pain relief, rehabilitation and psychological purposes, and is growing in popularity in the U.S and around the world. The IBIS world industry report estimates that massage therapy was a $11.7 billion industry in U.S in 2014.
However, according to an American Massage Therapy Association industry survey, fifty percent of massage therapists say they would like to work more hours than they presently do. In 2014, the average annual income for a massage therapist (including tips) was estimated to be $22,165. This often forces massage professionals to seek extra work in different fields, as they struggle to make ends meet focusing solely on massage and bodywork, even in the face of rapidly growing demand for massage services. MassageBook aims to connect the massage seeking public with the thousands of talented independent massage professionals looking to add clients and grow their businesses.
Founded in 2012 and based in the Innolabs tech incubator in Charleston, SC., MassageBook is the only comprehensive success system built specifically for the needs of massage and bodywork professionals.
