Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:
All massage therapy appointments to cease until May 8th, 2020 On March 20th

On March 20th, Florida Governor Ron Desantis issued executive order number 20-72 (Emergency Management – COVID-19 – Non-essential Elective Medical Procedures). The executive order calls for all non-essential medical treatment to cease until at least May 8th, 2020.

The Florida State Massage Therapy Association (FSMTA) notified its membership via email that they had reached out to the Florida Board of Massage Therapy for clarification as to whether the order includes massage therapists. 

FSMTA was informed that the Florida Board of Massage Therapy’s understanding is that the Executive Order DOES include Licensed Massage Therapists performing massage as being a non-essential medical treatment.
