Welcome to the

Irish Massage Therapists Association

The IMTA Therapist: A therapist you can trust!

The IMTA in brief

The Irish Massage Therapists Association was founded in 1990. It is a non-profit, professional body providing self-regulation to the massage industry. We rigorously vet all applicants and only list them as registered therapists once we have received adequate documentation. This enables us to assure the public with access to properly vetted, qualified, professional therapists. Members abide by the Association's Code of Ethics and uphold its Constitution.

Over the years, the IMTA has built up its reputation based on its high standards of membership and is in good standing with, and recognised by, Irish Life Health insurance. It is the only association for massage therapists in Ireland with this recognition.

The IMTA works closely with FICTA (Federation of Irish Complementary Therapy Associations) and EFCAM (European Federation for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) to represent massage and bodywork at national and EU level. Together we continue to represent the interests of therapists in the event of changing requirements to legislation and education.

The IMTA is managed by a voluntary Executive Committee and support team, voted in at the AGM each year and aided by a salaried, part-time secretary who carries out the day-to-day work of the Association.

    I have spent the past while going through the new website -  went into every heading and enjoyed surfing all the new areas. It is fantastic, easy to navigate, lots of information that is very clear and helpful, for both therapists and members of the public... The directory is excellent, in fact the whole site is a dream to use.  Well done to all concerned in launching the new site - a mammoth task.  Mary M
