Why we need more MT who can bill for insurance.

Massage Insurance Billing is a controversial topic.

Please Join Our CMT Coalition Against Human Trafficking

Hello Everyone,

Below is a link for an article that came out in the local paper this past weekend. Although this article is about what's happening in Layfatte, CA, it's also occuring in Concord and Pleasant HIll, (neighboring communities), at an alarming rate of 2 - 3 new shops a week.  Some with banners in front offering massage for $15 - $20 per hour.  A local Concord Chiropractor had brought this problem to my attention a couple of days before,…
