We inspire massage therapists to be the change they wish to see.
Since 2020, the United States Organization of Licensed Massage Therapists (USOLMT) has been an advocate for safe and sustainable workplaces in our industry, improving the employer-employee relationship, high-quality massage education, and legislation that promotes and supports the legitimate practice of massage therapy. We’ve advocated both directly and indirectly for massage therapists and our profession. We exist to address and overcome the issues of professional massage therapists in the USA.
| EDUCATE | ELEVATE | ENCOURAGE | EMPOWER | DISRUPT | INNOVATE |
USOLMT advocates for the massage therapy profession by educating, elevating, and encouraging professional massage therapists to break with the status quo of our industry and assists by empowering present and potential massage therapists and employers to innovate for future growth and expansion of our industry.
The work of massage therapists is wide in scope, so we don't limit the scope of our organization. There is something here for everyone. Today’s massage therapist performs everything from hospital-based and clinical care, sports and athletic care to wellness and spa treatments. In some states massage therapists are classified as health care providers or alternative health care and in others they are classified as personal service providers. Massage therapists work with humans and sometimes, they even work with animals.
Massage therapists in the US practice eastern and western methods, subscribe to a wide range of philosophies within those methods and practice a practically endless number of massage modalities. No matter what type of practice you have, you are welcome here.
We are a diverse group of people from all walks of life with differing ideas, challenges, and opinions. In the search for commonality, we've found that we all experience common challenges in our work, and it is through these collective challenges and like-minded supportive groups that we can overcome, find a sense of community and acceptance, and use our collective strength to achieve greatness.
