Utah Chapter

American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA)

The AMTA-UT Chapter is a non-profit, professional massage therapy association with over 700 members. Our motto is Promoting Wellness Through Massage. As a state chapter of the American Massage Therapy Association, which has over 50,000 members, we strive to make available to our members the highest quality continuing education providers and to keep them informed of relevant news. This we do through monthly board meetings, a quarterly newsletter and our chapter web-site. The national association’s web site provides thousands of pages of information for the profession and for consumers, including the “Find a Massage Therapist” service. This is an easy-to-use list of professional level members that meet continuing education standards. By phone you can locate a qualified therapist toll-free at 888-843-2682.

The mission of the Utah Chapter of the American Massage Therapy Association is to advance the art and science of massage therapy as a visible means of treatment and preventative practice; and to foster the professional practice of massage therapy in a virtuous, prudent, and proficient manner so as to maintain the good health and well-being of the citizens of Utah.

Membership Access to Board Meetings
