Attention all Massage Therapists, Massage Practitioners, Bodyworkers, Bodywork Therapists!

Published Wednesday, December 29, 2010 by Kay Peterson

The new, mandatory massage therapy and bodywork therapy licensing law went into effect December 1, 2010. This means that unless you qualify for an exemption you are required to get a state license in order to legally practice in Wisconsin. The law applies whether you do massage therapy or bodywork therapy for compensation or not.  Even if you are currently certified by the State you need to apply for a license, but you do not have to meet any additional requirements. For those without a current state certification, there are 4 grandparenting options and that window of opportunity will last through the end of 2011. The Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing has application forms available online. These new credentials will be valid until February 28, 2013.  For the latest information, click here.
