Senate Bill 227 amends the massage therapy scope of practice, definitions, fees, license qualifications, and misconduct. The bill also adds the following new sections: public roster, licensure by endorsement, and establishment licensure.
The bill will make it easier for massage therapists with 625 hours of education to move to and from other jurisdictions once at least seven or more states approve the proposed bill language. Participate in a Zoom meeting on July 6, 2022, or August 11, 2022, to learn more about the interstate compact.
House File 2168 adds massage therapists to the list of persons required to report child and dependent adult abuse and will now be required to complete training on this subject as a condition of licensure effective July 1, 2022.
