The goal of this three hours CE class is to review the Iowa laws associated with massage therapy and impacting Massage Therapists. There will be an overview of 152C Iowa Code for Massage Therapy, Chapter 131 Licensure of Massage Therapists, Chapter 132 Massage Therapy Curriculum, and Chapter 133 Continuing Education for Massage Therapists.  Much of the class will consist of open discussion and questions allowing for plenty of opportunity for participant questions to be addressed.
