Massage Therapy Services Resuming

A message for CMTCA massage therapy education programs


CMTCA knows that the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting massage therapy education programs and how they deliver their curricula, and we support all efforts to follow public health guidelines and limit transmission. Some of the changes that are being made may affect a program’s ability to meet certain criteria in the standards. CMTCA is already planning how we will take these extenuating circumstances into consideration when site visits resume.

Programs that hold 1, 3 or 5 year accreditation decisions with CMTCA must notify us by email at of changes that become long term or permanent, or that affect their compliance with the standards. Programs that hold Preliminary Accreditation are not required to report changes to CMTCA.

We encourage everyone to follow public health guidelines and stay safe during this difficult time.
