This notice is to inform you that our current Massage Licensure Board is considering implementing establishment inspections again. By way of votes and discussion at numerous State-wide meetings of this topic, our TMTA Board has determined that a majority of our members are against the inspection process and this association will honor the wishes of the majority. You should know that the AMTA membership is in alliance with this determination and the two organizations are working together on this issue with the MLB.  

It is the consensus of both associations to do away with the Establishment License but maintain a registry of sorts for legal purposes at a rate of $40.00 every two years to cover the cost of administration.   We urge each and everyone of you to state your opinions, for or against inspections and send those comments via e-mail to the Massage Licensure Board c/o , Director of Health Related Boards and the Governor

 Please send all email correspondence by April 27th so administration can get it in the packets that go to all MLB members prior to the meeting.   You may click here to see a live stream of the last MLB meeting.
