IMTA in brief

IMTA was founded in 1990 and is one of the more respected associations in the field of Complimentary Healthcare in Ireland today.

We promote and encourage high standards in training, education and the practice of the many diverse forms of Massage Therapy/Body work.

We are recognised by the Department of Health as the national association for massage therapists. We pride ourselves on protecting our members’ interests with a supportive, professional approach, while at the same time, providing the general public with access to highly qualified, professional therapists.

In the absence of much-needed official Government regulation and legislation in the area of complementary therapies, IMTA is a self-regulating body.

In addition to the many networking and support advantages of membership, we have an extremely competitive Group Insurance Scheme, a nation-wide Discount Scheme and a country-wide network of regional network meetings. Whether you are a student or a qualified massage or bodywork therapist in Ireland today, it makes financial sense to join the IMTA and have access to the many other benefits of membership.

We are also a member of FICTA, the umbrella group for complementary therapy associations in Ireland and a member of The Wheel.
