The Department of Regulatory Agencies, Division of Professions and Occupations, began regulation of massage therapists effective April 1, 2009, pursuant to Senate Bill 08-219. The Massage Therapy Practice Act can be found in Title 12, Article 35.5 of the Colorado Revised Statutes.

If your jurisdiction currently regulates Massage Therapists, this legislation impacts that practice. According to Section 12-35.5-118 C.R.S., "No city, county, city and county, or other political subdivision of this State shall enact or enforce any local ordinance that regulates the practice or profession of massage therapy.”

If you have questions please visit our Laws, Rules and Policies page for more information.


Legislation passed during the Legislative Session impacts the Division of Professions and Occupations. Please review the program's Laws, Rules and Policies web page to learn of any changes due to legislation.
