SUNY Niagara Massage Therapy student provides chair massage

October 29, 2019

SUNY Niagara has a great reputation for preparing its students in the Allied Health fields, and the Massage Therapy Program is just another example of that success.  A one-hundred-percent pass rate on the New York State Massage Therapy Examination was achieved by recent graduates of SUNY Niagara’s program this past August.

Due to the rising awareness of massage therapy benefits, the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects an increase in the job outlook for massage therapists to increase by 22% between 2018-2028.  The average salary range in Niagara and Erie Counties is $43,473 – $56,146 per year.  Jobs are available in a wide variety of settings, including spas, clinics, physician’s offices, hotels, and fitness centers.  The SUNY Niagara Massage Therapy Program provides clinical experience through the massage clinic, as well as a variety of table and chair massage techniques that prepare students for placements after graduation.
