What makes the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) different?

  • AMTA is the only national non-profit association dedicated to serving members and the massage therapy profession, giving AMTA the non-profit advantage.
  • We endorse professional standards and support fair and consistent licensing of massage therapy. We actively promote members as the first choice for massage therapy to consumers.
  • We are led by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by the membership at the national and chapter levels.
  • AMTA has been, and will continue to be, a leader in advancing the massage therapy profession.
