The AMTA-MA Chapter Leadership and volunteers will provide chair massage for the State Legislature and Staff on October 24, 2013 in the Statehouse Great Hall of Flags. This will be the second time a volunteer team has performed massage at the statehouse in an effort to educate legislators about the benefits of massage and the need to maintain strong laws regarding massage therapy. Members interested in volunteering may find more information here.
AMTA-MA Chapter has been integral in the creation of House Bills 185 and 2030 which amends language in sections 227, 228 and 235 of M.G.L. c. 112, which in part, govern the licensing of massage therapists in the Commonwealth. You can read more about the House Bills and AMTA's position here.
