Join in supporting Massage Therapy Licensing
HF 973 and SF 967
Minnesota has worked for years to establish state wide regulation of massage therapy and
is currently one of three states remaining in the USA without regulation.
Forty-five states, Puerto Rico, and Washington D.C. already require massage therapists to be licensed - and most regulate massage therapy as a healthcare profession.
State regulation will support the profession of massage therapy in the following ways:
Reduce the administrative and financial burden on massage therapists by replacing the patchwork of city regulations that impede portability and city reciprocity for massage therapists practicing in more than one city.
Provide increased public protection by implementing a process to address massage therapist ethical violations, license revocations from another state, and convictions relevant to the practice of massage therapy.
Standardize education, provide uniformity for scope of practice and professional standards, and establish qualification and competencies for entry-level practitioners.
Recognize massage therapy as a non-pharmacologic integrative health care option.
