Update on Proposed NC Massage Establishment and CE Rules

The public hearing on the North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy's proposed rules concerning massage establishments and continuing education was held on April 19. Over 200 people attended the hearing, and the majority of attendees spoke on the record about the impact that the proposed rules would have on them and their businesses. It was an impressive turnout and an energetic showing of our profession's grassroots involvement in policy issues. We thank all of you who attended and who continue to be involved in the process. The Board did indicate at the hearing that it is considering removing the proposed rule regulating the size of massage treatment rooms. The Board will continue to review all of the public comments.

You can read the proposed rules here. The rules are not yet final and the process is ongoing.

The Board will next meet on June 21 to discuss and consider the public comments and vote on rules to submit to the Rules Review Commission. There is still time to submit your written comments concerning the proposed rules. Please submit your comments by May 14, 2018 to:

We will continue to keep you updated.
