Revised Proposed Public Health Rules for Massage Establishments

Revised proposed Public Health Rules for Delaware massage therapy establishments have been issued. The revised proposed rules omit some of the objectionable provisions in the prior rules proposal, such as lighting requirements for massage establishments, but contain other problematic provisions, such as lack of clarity regarding sanitation procedures and references to invasive procedures, which MT's of course do not perform.

New Delaware Massage Establishment Regulations 

The Delaware Board of Massage and Bodywork (Board) has finalized the regulations implementing the state's new massage establishment license law. The law and regulations require that massage and bodywork businesses obtain an establishment license in addition to any state or locally required business license, and in addition to the state massage therapist license that must be held by each individual massage therapist. ABMP actively worked with the Board to help shape the regulations and voice our concerns during the regulatory process.
