BLMTB is a group of massage therapists, bodyworkers, and somatic practitioners
who see the need for a home-grown advocacy group that will promote and embrace
the ever expanding diversity of our profession.
Our goal is to represent the rank and file practitioner, without promoting any one agenda. All too often, it is the voice of the well-organized (and funded) national organizations whose viewpoints are taken to represent the profession as a whole: they take a world view.
Montana has unique challenges, and these national organizations are often not able to respond to the needs of the individual communities. So that additional viewpoints can be heard, we have organized the BLMTB to ensure that your voice isn't lost.
The BLMTB is a 501(c)(6) non-profit and is tax exempt on federal and state levels.
What We Do
BLMTB calls attention to any issues that might be of concern to our community.
The BLMTB Board monitors the activities of the Montana Board of Massage Therapy, The Montana Legislature and national organizations such as the AMTA and the ABMP.
When something happens in the community, we let you know through our free email newsletter. Click Here to receive our free newsletter .
If we believe that something will adversely affect our community, we step forward to take an active role.
Montana Health Freedom
Not all of our members are licensed massage therapists. Many practice hands-on professions that do not require a license. We also provide the same support to these practitioners through cooperation with the Montana Health Freedom Coalition.

Please Donate to the BLMTB
All of our activities are made possible through the support of our volunteers, our members, and your donations. No one is paid to do the work we do, and no one is reimbursed for our activities. No one is reimbursed for their mileage to go to Helena, no one gets their hotel paid for. We truly are a volunteer organization. But the organization does incur costs: the mailbox, the website, and legal filings. Sometimes we send out mailings (and those are expensive). Your support is needed to cover these costs.
