Welcome to the American Massage Therapy Association!

Associations help members further their career, expand their knowledge and skills, connect with others in the profession and advocate on their behalf. AMTA is the largest nonprofit, professional association serving massage therapists, massage students and massage schools, offering the strongest benefits in the profession.

You can also rest assured that AMTA promotes massage to the public, the health care community and other important groups. We work for fair licensing of massage in all states, and actively support research. Your voice is heard at AMTA, as we are governed by massage therapists, and provide a wealth of local and national networking and continuing education opportunities.

At AMTA, we’ll take care of the business of helping both you and the profession grow and succeed so you can concentrate on what you love and do best: being a massage therapist.

Check out all the great benefits that await you as a Student member of AMTA!

"As a professional member of AMTA, I have found comfort in knowing that all the effort I put into obtaining my massage certification is recognized and protected. AMTA standards validate the profession."
