The Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) is a non-profit organization whose members are licensing boards and agencies for massage and bodywork. Our current membership includes the licensing boards and agencies of 41 states, the District of Columbia, and the US territory of Puerto Rico. Our mission is to support our Member Boards in fulfilling their responsibilities of public protection. 

The FSMTB serves as a resource for information for our members, a facilitator for member-to-member communication, the provider of a valid and reliable licensing examination, and an advisor for implementation of initiatives that improve the regulatory environment of the massage profession and foster and enhance public protection.

We keep up to date with best practices in regulation by serving as a governing member of the Federation of Associations of Regulatory Boards (FARB) and by being an active member of the Council on Licensure, Enforcement, and Regulation (CLEAR). We communicate regularly with our Member Boards and Agencies as these best practices evolve and change.

Our Member Services staff strive for the highest degree of professional service in communicating with our Member Boards and Agencies. If you work for one of our member agencies, we are here to work for you.
