Welcome to the amta South Dakota Chapter Website!

"AMTA is committed to fair and consistent licensing of massage therapists in all states, to reinforce that massage therapists are engaged in the health and wellbeing of their clients. Nearly half of all massages sought by Americans in the past five years have been for specific health reasons. Attempts to deregulate massage therapy by states are misguided and ignore the need for massage therapists to have adequate training to ensure the protection of their clients/patients. AMTA is very aware of the situation and will continue its efforts to educate South Dakota Governor Daugaard and others about the need for massage therapy licensure." - amta National


We encourage you to take a few minutes and send an email to SD Governor Daugaard in regards to his wanting to deregulate massage therapy licensing in South Dakota!
