Medical School Center for Mindfulness. In addition to her interest in the benefits of mindfulness, Liz is also interested the cautions and potential pitfalls of meditation practice.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

FYI. It is our understanding that new bills for licensing Massage Therapists will be introduced during the 2019 legislative session.

The Board of Cosmetology wants to license both therapists and premises.

AMTA will present a bill that would place massage therapy under the Board of Healing Arts.

At this time there is no published information on either bill, they may not yet have even been written, and they have not been introduced. Bills are introduced after the legislature convenes in January.

We will update our website with information as it becomes  available. Watch this space.
