The Office of Massage Therapy Licensure (Division Director) regulates individual massage therapists. The Division Director does not regulate massage parlors or locations where massage therapy is practiced. The Division Director is authorized to take disciplinary actions against those who violate the Massage Therapy Practice Act, Rules and Regulations. Office activities include issuing licenses to massage therapists, investigating complaints about massage therapists, and enforcing disciplinary actions taken by the Division Director.
As of July 1, 2014, changes to the Colorado Massage Therapist Laws will take effect. The new rules have been posted on the "Laws, Rules and Policies" tab to the left. Those seeking massage therapy licensure (previously a registration) will be required to provide primary source verification/documentation of passing the national exam and completion of an approved massage education/training program. The application for massage therapist licensure is online ONLY. Before you begin your online application, please view the list of required items and compile documentation needed to complete your online application. You may view a list of required items for massage therapist licensure here.
