Illinois Massage Licensing

The Galesburg Register-Mail lists the new requirements for licensed massage therapists in Illinois after the passage of the state's Massage Licensing Act last year.

"Licensing requirements provide reassurance to individuals who feel they've been given bad treatment in the past," said Susan Hofer of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. "The requirements cannot fully prevent abuse or misconduct, but at least now licensed individuals are held accountable for their actions. If they lose their license, they cannot practice massage therapy in Illinois. In fact, they cannot even advertise with the words 'massage' or 'therapy' if they are not officially licensed."
