Before you choose a massage therapist, make certain he or she is licensed in the state of Colorado.
Massage therapists are required to complete a recognized course in massage therapy with at least 500 hours of course work and practical training from a massage therapy school approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
Massage therapists must pass a certified massage therapy practice exam, and complete continuing education courses in order to maintain a license.
Licensed massage therapists also agree to follow a code of conduct to protect the safety and privacy of their patients.
An unlicensed or inexperienced massage therapist could:
*aggravate an existing injury or delay healing
*lessen flexibility, range of motion or mobility in some people
*be unaware of the effects of chronic conditions
You deserve the best treatment from the most qualified, experienced and licensed massage therapist.
