September 1st started the new “biennium” for Florida Massage Therapists. The rule that allowed for relevant, hands-on classes to be taken through distance learning was only valid for the 2019-2021 biennium. This means all classes for relevant, hands-on continuing education must be acquired through live in person classroom hours.
On September 23rd the Florida Board of Massage will have a rules workshop to determine what the details of “massage therapy assessment” will look like.
The FSMTA Legislative Team will return to Tallahassee in October to meet with Legislators to educate and promote the Massage Therapy Profession. During this visit, we will meet with several key members of the Florida Legislature and provide chair massage on the 3rd Floor Rotunda of the Florida Capitol Building.
The Florida Board of Massage Therapy will hold their next quarterly board meeting October 28th and 29th at the Renaissance World Golf Resort in St. Augustine.
