The FSMTA is one of the oldest and largest massage associations in the country with over 4500 members. Our chapter is one of 19 chapters covering Florida. We serve Collier, Hendry and Lee counties with approximately 400 members.Please browse through our website and get to know us.

Our desire is to familiarize more people about massage and its therapeutic effects on the body, mind and emotions. Massage therapists are healers first in their hearts - they believe in the healing power of human touch - and secondly through their training. There are many different massage techniques being taught today, sophisticated, complicated, simple, natural, and still more are evolving. Each therapist brings a slightly different perspective to the massage profession, as she or he discovers their own unique abilities to enhance wellness.
