Ohio is proud to be celebrating over 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!
