New Advertising Requirements in Washington

HB 1133, signed into law by Governor Gregoire on May 3, 2011, will require massage practitioners to include their name and license number on all advertisements and conspicuously display his or her license in his or her principal place of business. If the massage practitioner does not have a principal place of business or conducts business in multiple locations, he or she must have a copy of his or her license available for inspection while performing any activities related to massage therapy. The law goes into effect on July 22, 2011.
