OMTA - The Oregon Massage Therapists Association

Serving Licensed Massage Therapists since 1985

OMTA is an alternative grass-roots professional organization. We are a diverse, eclectic membership, dedicated to a collaborative, consensus process. We support creative new ideas and flexibility. We have a local Oregon identity, are self-authorized, and self-created.


Due to declining membership and a lack of volunteers to run the organization, the Executive Committee has voted to close the organization. Beginning January 1, 2018, we will no longer accept new members and will no longer accept renewals. OMTA will cease operations on December 31, 2018.

Member benefits will continue as normal throughout 2018.


OMTA Partners with LCC for Low Cost Continuing Education

OMTA, partnering with Lane Community College, has formed the Lane County Massage & Bodyworkers Organization. On the first Monday of every month we offer an ongoing series of continuing education subjects at the downtown campus in Eugene. Attendance is free, but there is a $5 fee for OMTA members to receive a Continuing Education Certificate. Non-members pay $10. 


The OBMT requires LMTs to complete four contact hours of continuing education each two-year renewal period. OMTA's former president, Robert Bike teaches a four-hour ethics class at Lane Community College every month. See his website for details.
Past Presidents Council

The Past Presidents Council is now running OMTA. Robert Bike and  Melody Morton Gandy are temporarily in charge of all OMTA functions, as the two past presidents willing to serve.
