Employment for the related occupation of massage therapist is projected to grow 22 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This suggests demand for myotherapists will also increase. Demand will be especially strong because more people are living longer, and the aging population will seek ways to reduce pain and improve health. Even though there are no official figures, the field of myotherapy has grown. The public, especially in the past few decades, has become more proactive when it comes to their bodies and health. Many people are tired of the dependence on traditional medicine and are looking for alternative methods of pain relief. There is a growing acceptance of myotherapy from the public and the medical field. Many physicians, especially those specializing in neurology and rheumatology, are referring patients for myotherapy treatments more and more. Insurance companies, though slowly, are beginning to cover myotherapy treatments.
