Join the Florida State Massage Therapy Association and Strengthen Your Massage Therapy Practice

The Florida State Massage Therapy Association (FSMTA), has been a key advocate for massage therapists in Florida since its founding 85 years ago. FSMTA focuses on legislative efforts, education, and professional support.

FSMTA provides its members with benefits like professional liability insurance, continuing education programs, an online career center, and access to an annual convention and trade show. The upcoming Trade Show is July 27-29 in Orlando/Alamonte Springs FL. Their mission is to unify the massage therapy profession and promote high standards in healthcare, ensuring members have the necessary resources for continued success.

The association’s legislative work has significantly advanced the profession. Key achievements include the inclusion of massage therapists in the 2019 Nonopioid Alternatives legislation and the 2021 update to the Massage Therapy Practice Act. FSMTA maintains a strong presence at Florida Board of Massage Therapy meetings and keeps members informed through a monthly newsletter and quarterly magazine.

FSMTA’s 19 local chapters offer networking opportunities and community involvement, including free or low-cost continuing education and events to raise public awareness about the benefits of massage therapy. The annual convention is a highlight, featuring internationally known speakers and major vendors, providing members with substantial discounts and opportunities for professional growth.
