AMTA - My Professional Association

AMTA has long been the leading choice among massage therapists looking to establish themselves within the profession. AMTA provides members with the strongest benefits and promotes massage therapy to the public and health care community.

AMTA is the largest nonprofit, professional association serving massage therapists, massage students and massage schools. This means your membership dollars are invested back into the profession through research, advocacy and promotion of the health benefits of massage to the general public and health care community. No other company or organization gives back as much - see for yourself!


"We chose AMTA over ABMP because AMTA is a nonprofit, and I appreciate knowing that all of the funds that go into AMTA are put right back into helping us as AMTA members."

Affordable Massage Liability Insurance Options

While you may think that having your license is all you need to practice massage, it is also important to make sure you are covered with high quality massage insurance in the case of an unexpected liability, such as a client becoming injured, or damage to property other than your own as a result of something you may or may not have done.

An AMTA Professional Membership and AMTA Graduate Membership includes affordable broad liability insurance to make sure that massage therapists are protected in case of a loss. 

With an AMTA membership, you're covered for up to $2 million per occurrence/$6 million aggregate for professional liability, general liability, products and personal injury.

“They keep their finger on the pulse of the profession which really helps to drive that member-focus. I really do feel that what AMTA focuses on is member-driven rather than a top-down approach.”
