Massage Therapy Leadership Coalition Meets in Denver

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, ABMP was grateful to spend two days in Denver, Colorado, hosting members of the Massage Therapy Leadership Coalition. ABMP, along with representatives from the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education (AFMTE), the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA), and the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB), had robust discussions regarding the Massage Therapy Licensing Compact that will support massage therapists’ mobility, the potential for ABMP’s new Cornerstones instructor development product to advance quality massage therapy education and standards for educators, and therapist empowerment regarding addressing sexual solicitation and assault perpetrated upon massage therapists. We look forward to continuing conversations and regrouping with all of the Coalition members in 2023.
