Welcome to the
American Massage Therapy Association
Ohio Chapter

Ohio is proud to be celebrating 100 years for licensed massage therapy! In 1915 legislation passed requiring a license to practice massage therapy. In January 1916, Agnes B. Forbes of Dayton, OH was the first person to go to The State Medical Board of Ohio to test and receive her license in massage therapy! For almost 30 years we were the first and only state to require a license in the NATION!
