The California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) issues voluntary certifications to massage professionals that meet the requirements in California State Law, known as the Massage Therapy Act.
Hiring a CAMTC certified massage professional ensures that your employee meets or exceeds minimum standards established by the Massage Therapy Act and has passed all background and safety checks.
Original CAMTC Certificates (not photocopies) are required by California State Law to be displayed at each workplace location.

Notice Regarding CAMTC Recertification
Reminder notifications may be sent to you as a courtesy only, and failure to receive a reminder notification does not waive late fees and your responsibility to submit a fully completed application for recertification in a timely manner to ensure that it is 'received' by CAMTC at least 60 days before the expiration date listed on your certificate. NOTE: You may apply as early as 90 days prior to your expiration date.
