The Nevada State Board of Massage Therapists was established in 2005 by Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 640C. The board is funded from fees collected by licensees and does not receive funds from the State General Fund.

The mission of the Nevada State Board of Massage Therapists is to, through licensing and regulating the practice of massage, protect the public health, safety and welfare by ensuring that only qualified competent Massage Therapy Practitioners are licensed in the State of Nevada. It is our goal to balance the needs of the public with those of Licensed Massage Therapists, through development, implementation, enforcement, and continued improvement in the areas of therapist education, public safety, boundaries and ethics, in compliance with the highest standards set forth within the Massage Therapy Profession.
