Dear Visitor,

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. The California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) is a private non-profit public benefit corporation. Through legislation, the State of California authorized CAMTC to provide voluntary certification that enables massage therapists to practice statewide. Our Mission is: To protect the public by certifying massage professionals in California that meet the requirements in the law, and approving massage programs that meet the minimum standards for training and curriculum.

CAMTC certified professionals are recognized throughout California for having met the state's educational requirements and for passing an extensive background check. Once approved, they are certified to practice massage therapy throughout the State of California without the need to obtain multiple massage permits.

CAMTC credentials create immediate rapport with allied health professionals and recognition by the public they serve.

Currently there are over 50,000 active CAMTC certificate holders. This has made hiring easier for employers and improved communication with local governments and the public they serve. We are committed to making the experience of all stakeholders a streamlined, positive collaboration resulting in greater public safety. Together we have a unique opportunity to benefit and protect the public in California!

To your health,


Mark W. Dixon, CMT, BCTMB
CAMTC Chairman
