We’re the only accreditor fully dedicated to massage therapy and esthetics

The Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA) accredits both educational institutions and programs offering instruction in massage therapy and bodywork or esthetics and skin care. We were formed with the mission of establishing and maintaining the quality and integrity of our professions. With COMTA accreditation, you can be sure that the standards you’re meeting reflect the national needs of the profession.

Since 2002, COMTA has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a specialized accrediting agency.

The Commission

We’re governed by a Commission of volunteers consisting of ten to thirteen elected Commissioners, including at least two public representatives.
