Representative Body for Massage Practitioners
The Association of Massage Therapists (AMT) was founded in 1966 as a non-profit organisation representing qualified Massage Therapists and students of massage therapy programs.
It is the oldest organisation that represents massage therapy as a separate entity in Australia, the premier representative body for professional massage therapists.
As a qualified association, AMT works hard to advocate for the recognition of massage therapy as a profession and raises public awareness of the health benefits of massage therapy.
Furthermore, AMT was the first organisation to establish provider status agreements with private health funds and has been instrumental in getting Massage Therapy recognised by both WorkCover in New South Wales and Victoria.
AMT provides a referral service for members of the public looking for a qualified, professional therapist.
As part of the association's professional services, they can offer guidance and information on what to expect from your therapist and the treatment you'll receive.
You can find a list of questions on the website before booking an appointment.

Testimonials from AMT’s Previous Clients
“Very impressed by this organisation which takes an ethical, evidence-based approach to healthcare and provides genuine and considered leadership, not just for its members, but for those of the broader profession and related fields who engage with them.
I'm particularly impressed by the stance they took in providing clear, unequivocal advice to their members regarding safety to practice during the COVID-19 epidemic. As an epidemiologist, I have no doubt what-so-ever that the advice they gave members on 16th March, that they should close because it was no longer safe to practice, will have saved lives, potentially many lives.” - Elaine Stevenson
“I believe they are the leaders in the Massage Industry. They work tirelessly to keep us informed and certainly have gone above and beyond during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you to a leading organisation I am honoured to be a member of.” - Linda Mueller
“An association that is elbow deep, heart open and science minded in helping the Remedial massage industry and its therapists to flourish personally and professionally!” - Camille Adams
