Healing Hands Opening Doors of Opportunity for New Students

When it comes to Massage Therapy Schools…There IS a Difference!

In accordance with the new Massage Therapy Law in effect as of January 1, 2015, the state governing body, the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) now requires


  1. CAMTC certificate holders have completed sufficient training at CAMTC approved schools;
  2. Ensure that CAMTC approved schools are providing a high level of training;
  3. Ensure that all applicants pass a CAMTC approved Standardized Exam.


To receive approval by CAMTC, massage schools must meet stringent criteria and deliver training and curricula that meet specific legal requirements. Massage Therapist/Applicants who do not attend a CAMTC approved school, will no longer be eligible for state certification!
