Massage professionals have until Aug. 19 to submit feedback on the first draft of an outline for entry-level massage education.

The Entry Level Analysis Project (ELAP) announced the creation of the draft this week, in a press release.

ELAP is a cooperative venture by the coalition of major national organizations in the massage therapy profession. It has reviewed more than 14 different massage therapy surveys, projects and documents from a wide variety of organizations, as well as state regulatory boards.

“This process has led to ideas for how entry-level massage therapy education might change and evolve and the development of an initial draft of an entry-level curriculum map,” the press release noted.
