What kind of License/Paperwrk do I need to do chair massage

Post by rubadubsuphi » Tue Nov 30, 2010 1:57 pm

Just fresh out of massage school and exploring my options for chair massage. I will be working in San Diego and I am currently licensed and carry liability insurance. I am starting to look into setting up gigs with friends at street fairs and art shows. I am wondering what is truly needed to do this work with the public? Do I need to carry some sort of business license as well? Does it change per venue? Am I good with just my license and my insurance? Any help would be appreciated.

Hopefully someone in the San Diego area can help you.

Licensing requirements vary widely. Would your school be able to give any advice?

From a quick search on line, it looks as though you either apply for a licence at a local (municipal) level or a state level.

Here are a couple of links:

Also makesure you can offer chair massage outside. Here in MA. there is a new law that you aren't so post to offer chair massages on a side walk, but I have yet to seen it inforced

I really don't know. You can be out side working under a tent, but for some reason not on a sidewalk

I think the license requirements should be the same for all types of massage you choose to practice in a state. I would definitely check with the local license requirements or even with a salon that offers chair massages to get an idea of what you will need in order to practice.
