Date:8/5/2009

  • Susan Gobreski, public member, Philadelphia County
  • Robert C. Jantsch, chairman, professional member, Allegheny County
  • Martha Kollar Malina, vice chairwoman, professional member, Dauphin County

  • An additional professional member will be appointed in the near future, and the Department of Health expects to name its designee shortly.

    One means of obtaining a license is completion of at least 600 hours of in-class, postsecondary massage education. The education must include training about HIV and related risks, along with cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques. The act also requires applicants to pass a national examination.

    A provision of the act "grandfathers" existing practitioners, though they must have been in active practice for at least five years and demonstrated competence to practice.

    All licensees are required to complete at least 24 hours of continuing professional education every two years.

    The licensure law restricts use of the titles "licensed massage therapist," "massage therapist," and the abbreviation "L.M.T." to licensed massage therapists only; it also prohibits holding oneself out to others as a massage therapist without licensure. This restriction includes advertising as a massage therapist and using any title or description including massage therapist, massage practitioner, masseur, masseuse, myotherapist or any derivative of these terms.

    The act generally prohibits licensure of individuals who have been convicted of felonies under the Controlled Substance Act. It also authorizes the board to refuse, suspend or revoke a license if the licensee is convicted of a crime of moral turpitude
