Massage Therapy Licensure

Oversight of massage therapy practitioners, facilities, and schools is solely the responsibility of the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Massage Therapy. The Board is currently accepting massage therapy practitioner and facility license applications.

* Holders of state-issued massage therapy licenses who wish to practice bodywork therapy in Cambridge must still apply for and receive a Cambridge bodywork therapy license to do so. In this situation, the Cambridge licensing fee requirement will be waived.
