Certified or Licensed?

Indiana passed licensing a licensing law in 2017. Administrative Rules are being established; until they are completed and approved, Indiana therapists are certified and should use MT or CMT. Look for changes to our status in August 2022!


Although you can practice in Indiana without a license you cannot call yourself a massage therapist.


If you have questions about your application, or how to apply, please go to the Indiana PLA Massage Board Website for help.

Posted Board Meetings are open to the public. They may be virtual or held at the Government Center South Building, 402 W. Washington St., room W072, Indianapolis, IN 46204
