The American Massage Therapy Association - Minnesota Chapter Board, AMTA Government Relations Committee, and AMTA National have been working the last few months to prepare for the upcoming 2022 legislative session beginning January 31st, 2022 at 12:00 pm. 

 

Our bill assigned as HF1275 and SF1074, to license Massage Therapy and Asian Bodywork Therapy, was introduced last session. We are anticipating a hearing date assignment at the beginning of this coming session.
