The Bureau of Labor Statistics May 2008 State Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates for Utah notes that massage therapists working in Utah at that time earned a mean annual wage of $34,240. Most massage therapists are self-employed and are able to set their own schedules, determine how much and how often they wish to work, and enjoy the benefits of being their own boss.
Prospective massage therapists who intend to work in Utah will need to meet the requirements for licensure set forth by the Board of Massage Therapy of the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing. These requirements include obtaining at least 600 hours of education and training from an approved school and passing the national certification examination.
