AMTA's 75th Anniversary

Celebrating 75 Years of Health & Wellness!

The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) celebrated 75 years of health and wellness in 2018! What started as a small group of like-minded, dedicated massage therapy professionals in 1943 has grown to an association with more than 80,000 members—all of whom are just as devoted and dedicated to the profession.

As the largest non-profit association for massage therapists, students and schools, we celebrated our rich history while looking to the future for exciting advancements.
