The Massage Therapy Act went into effect May 1. Before the measure, individual cities managed and regulated massage therapists. Now, to practice massage therapy anywhere in Oklahoma, therapists must get a state-regulated license. The license holds several requirements, but ultimately costs an initial fee of $25, with a $50 fee every 2 years to renew. Massage therapists told FOX23 they feel the new license regulations add legitimacy to the business; they hope the licensing fees and requirements weed out illegitimate businesses. In addition to the boost to massage therapy’s legitimacy, they also say the licensing structure saves them money. Instead of having to pay for licensing in each city around the metro, they’ll be able to get one license to practice everywhere.
