Massage Therapist Pay in the Southwest

Recently released U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data indicates that, as of May 2020, there were more than 85,000 massage therapists employed in the United States.  Over 8,000 of those massage therapy jobs were in the four-state Southwest region of the country.  An examination of BLS data reveals the Southwest to be a modestly poor one for massage therapist pay, with New Mexico being the only state in the region with massage therapist annual mean wages above the national average.  A closer look at BLS data from May 2020 shows us the following about massage therapist pay in the Southwest:
