Massage therapy in Iowa is regulated and directed by the Iowa Board of Massage Therapy. A key stipulation of the Board is that all health clubs, spas, and independent massage therapists in Iowa must possess an active license in order to offer professional massage services. In Iowa, massage therapy is gaining recognition and respect as a medication-free, noninvasive treatment for many common health issues. Medical research shows a licensed massage therapist in Iowa may be able to assist state residents who are affected by headaches, digestive issues, muscular tension, insomnia, stress, sports injuries, soft tissue strains, anxiety, and other adverse conditions.
Despite the many benefits of massage therapy, relatively few people in Iowa are trained to offer massage services. While the United States Census Bureau estimates 3.1 million people lived in Iowa in 2016, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports approximately 820 individuals were employed as licensed massage therapists. In Iowa, massage therapists earn an average yearly salary of $39,640.
