According to the International Spa Association, the spa industry is the fourth largest leisure industry. Day spas make up 79 percent of spa establishments and employ professionals in all the major spa jobs. Resort and hotel spas account for 9 percent of the industry. Medical spas comprise 8.7 percent. The Northeast contains the largest percentage of spas at 25 percent. The Southwest is home to 23 percent of spas. Single location spas account for 74 percent of the industry. Twenty-six percent are affiliated with a franchise or corporation.

Massage is the most popular spa treatment, so massage therapy spa jobs are quite plentiful. Eighty-eight percent of spa establishments offer massage services. Many spas have added estheticians to provide skin care services as well (94 percent, in fact). Estheticians should have little difficulty finding beauty spa jobs within this growing industry. Eighty percent of spas offer hair removal and other body appearance services, while 66 percent offer salon services. Laser hair removal technicians and cosmetologists should find plenty of available spa employment opportunities.

According to the International Spa Association, the U.S. is home to more than 19,900 spas. Customers make over 150 million visits to U.S. spas each year. The Professional Beauty Association reports that the salon and spa industry generates nearly $40 billion in revenue annually. The spa industry alone generates more than $12 billion. In 2011, spas employed 338,600 professionals. Forty-four percent were full-time employees while 39 percent were part-time employees. The remaining 17 percent were contract professionals.

The International Spa Association recently released a study showing that the spa industry is recovering from the recession. There was a significant increase in spa visits, revenue and spa employment in 2011. The data revealed the recovery is occurring at a moderate pace. As the economy continues to recover, we can expect spa employment and the demand for spa jobs to increase as well. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that spa job opportunities for professionals such as massage therapists and cosmetologists will increase as much as 20 percent by 2018. As new spas open, the demand for spa management positions will also increase.
