Massage Therapist Salary Rhode Island

Massage Therapist Salary in Rhode Island

A massage therapist’s salary will differ greatly between locations and the employer mix there. To help your decisionmaking regarding a career as a therapist in Rhode Island, we acquired a database of salary data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (Occupational Employment and Wages data) and have extracted state and local data specific to massage therapist salary.

Massage therapist salary and wage data is collected on both an hourly and annual basis and, since many therapists choose to work part time, we present both methods here.

Rhode Island – Statewide

Statewide, a Rhode Island massage therapist has an average hourly wage of $23.69. To provide some detail, let’s look at the middle fifty percent of earners. We eliminate the bottom and top 25% to focus on reasonable earning expectations. This shows us that a massage therapist’s hourly earnings in Rhode Island range from $19.38 to $31.67 per hour.

As we said, we analyzed the data to filter for a Rhode Island massage therapist’s annual salary too. Here we found an average of $49,270 per year. To add context here, we pulled out that middle fifty percent range again and found the annual salary range for an Rhode Island massage therapist would be from $40,310to $65,880 per year.

Statewide data doesn’t always say what you can expect where you live in that state, so we kept digging. The Bureau of Labor Statistics provides data by Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) as well as by state. An MSA is a high population density area beyond a single town but that is closely economically tied together. They provided massage therapist information for one such area in Rhode Island, the Providence – Fall River – Warwick region.
