Professional Organizations for Massage Therapists in South Carolina
Currently, South Carolina does not have a state-specific professional organization for massage therapists. There is, however, a national organization that does have a chapter organization in South Carolina.
American Massage Therapy Association: The AMTA looks to serve its members as well as advance the science that drives massage therapists, the art of massage therapy and the manner in which massage therapy is practiced. This is a member-driven association that brings together all modalities of massage therapy, creating a forum where massage therapists are exposed to many different ideologies and techniques, some of which they may not ever experience otherwise. In addition to providing fellowship and networking opportunities, the AMTA also provides continuing education opportunities.
AMTA’s South Carolina office has no physical location but works to move its events around the state allowing all of its members an opportunity to participate close to their home. The contact information for the national office is:
