Massage Therapy is a profession in motion. When I first graduated from massage school in Atlanta Georgia in 1998, there was no State of Georgia Massage Therapy License. If you wanted to practice professional Massage Therapy at that time in the State of Georgia, you were required to obtain National Certification. The NCB served this need for Professionals and State Governments all across the United States for at least ten years or more. I am pleased to see them beginning to make strides toward rebranding themselves for the 21st century.
