Georgia Board of Massage Therapy
The Georgia Board of Massage Therapy, established by legislation in May 2005, is comprised of five members appointed by the Governor in July 2006 upon funding appropriation. Massage is therapeutic and regulations are necessary to protect the public from unqualified practitioners. It is in the interest of the public to set standards of qualifications, education, training, and experience for those who seek to practice massage therapy; to promote high standards of professional performance for those licensed to practice massage therapy; and to protect the public from unprofessional conduct by persons licensed to practice massage therapy. The board is assigned to the Secretary of State’s office for administrative purposes and is under the jurisdiction of the division director and operates in accordance with and pursuant to the provisions of O.C.G.A. § 43-1, as applicable.
The Board reviews applications, complaints, correspondence and regulates the practice of licensees throughout the state. Board meetings are open to the public and are generally held at the Office of Secretary of State, Professional Licensing Boards Division office located at 237 Coliseum Drive, Macon, Georgia. Meeting dates, time and location are posted on this website.
