AMTA Wyoming's Government Relations Survey
RequiredRequired Question(s)
Our State is growing and we believe that massage legislation will occur. It's just a matter of time. The time has come for all of us to lend our perspectives and collaborate. It is of critical importance to have therapeutic practitioners actively involved in the writing and creation of (future) legislation in Wyoming. Let's not hand over the bill writing to persons or agencies who may not understand our practice and put into law legislation that does not support us or that could cause us restrictions and/or financial impairment. 

Who better than Massage Therapists to consider all of the facets of our professional practice. When we seek to write legislation, we must convey to our law making officials the myriad concerns that we have regarding our field. As Massage Therapists, we have so much to consider. We have ethical considerations. We must consider the art of relationships, therapeutic boundaries, the practice of the exchange of therapeutic service for monetary value. In addition, we are in care of a wealth of knowledge that encompasses the respectful practice and reverence of working on the human body.

It is of great importance and interest to the AMTA Wyoming Chapter's Government Relations Committee to have your in-depth reasons for seeking regulation. We want to convey this information as we gain momentum and share our cause with people who can help us.
AMTA Wyoming Chapter wants to work with all professional massage organizations and individuals to develop joint political efforts for our unified interests.
