The Interstate Massage Compact


The Council of State Governments (CSG) is partnering with the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) to support the mobility of licensed massage therapists through the development of a new interstate compact. This additional licensing pathway will create reciprocity among participant states and reduce the barriers to license portability.

Current Status
