The Massage Therapy Profession is Essential

Legal recognition of massage therapy and clearly stated requirements are critical to advancing the profession—and to protecting the health and safety of massage consumers.

Since its inception, AMTA has worked toward fair licensing and portability in all 50 states. Each day, our government relations team continues to fight for your right to practice massage therapy.

Massage therapists’ participation in the political process is essential to ensure the highest standards for the massage therapy profession and the highest quality of care for the massage consumer. Political participation can also be enjoyable.
