Interstate Massage Therapy Compact (IMpact)

The Council of State Governments (CSG) is partnering with the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) to support the mobility of licensed massage therapists through the development of a new interstate compact.  This additional licensing pathway will create reciprocity among participant states and reduce the barriers to license portability.

The initial draft of the Interstate Massage Therapy Compact (IMpact) is now online and the public comment period has started. CSG will be hosting weekly review sessions to go through the compact section by section, on Tuesdays beginning June 28. We encourage comments, questions and suggestions on compact language to be submitted via the feedback survey.

The compact draft, the survey for feedback and information about weekly review sessions can be found on CSG’s IMpact webpage:

  • American Massage Therapy Association
  • Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals
