FSMTB Human Trafficking Task Force Report Released

The Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) released its Human Trafficking Task Force Report at its 2017 Annual Meeting.

"This report is a tangible reflection of our vision and our values and we thank the regulatory board volunteers who generously and tenaciously tackled this difficult topic," says FSMTB Executive Director Dr. Debra Persinger. "We definitely look forward to continuing to work in our area of massage therapy regulatory responsibility that will contribute towards the ultimate eradication of human trafficking."

Through the publication of this Report, FSMTB aims to call attention to concerns regarding the prevalence and impact of human trafficking and illicit businesses upon the massage profession, many of which have been brought to the attention of the FSMTB and its member jurisdictions. It also seeks to offer solutions for the regulatory community.
