Indiana PLA Update: Administrative code 847 was approved by the PLA Massage Board on April 21 

The rules were sent to the Attorney General to review on April 22. The Attorney General has 45 days.

After approval, the Governor has 1 month to review and approve the rule. It is then placed in the Indiana Register and becomes active 30 days later. 


Read your emails and check here for updates.

Once the rules are promulgated your certification will transfer to a licensure status. If you are practicing without a certification you will no longer be able to do so after the 183 grace period. You can apply for licensure if one of these scenarios work for you:

Provide the Board with:

  • Prove that you have passed a recognized competency exam approved by the PLA Massage Board, with an affidavit that you have at least 5 years work experience in the state, OR
  • A certificate and transcript of completion from a massage therapy school of at least 500 hours, AND
  • Submit to a national criminal history background check
