Licensed & Experienced Massage Therapy

Specializing in Rehabilitative Medically Based Massage Therapy

Certification differs from a license in that it’s nearly always offered by a private, non-governmental agency such as a Massage School. These are usually professional associations, massage schools, which create certifying agencies to identify and acknowledge those who have met a standard. It grants permission to the individual to engage in providing massage therapy if it finds that the applicant has attained the degree of competency required to ensure the public health, safety, and welfare will be reasonably protected. Licensing is always based on the action of a legislative body, either State, Federal, or local. The health care professions are typically licensed at the state and/or local level, but not usually at the federal level.
