AMTA recognizes that state government regulation of the practice of massage therapy is the best way to meet the needs of the public and the massage therapy profession. However, leaving massage therapy regulation decisions to local government results in inconsistent regulation or none at all. The association believes that state licensure is the most effective means for the states to regulate our profession.
The AMTA CT Chapter has a lobbyist who helps us keep track of legislation that may come up that may impact massage therapy. The lobbyist also assist when the CT Chapter wants to introduce new legislation.
This is one of the most important activities for the CT Chapter.For more information, go to: https://www.amtamassage.org/regulation/index.html.
