OMTA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to LMTs and the massage profession.

OMTA is a non-profit volunteer organization whose activities and projects are directed by our Executive Committee (EC), whose members take an oath to follow the directives of the membership as outlined in our By-Laws. OMTA members volunteer their time for the various jobs on the EC.

In our history since our founding in 1985, OMTA has accomplished many things for the benefit of our members and the public.

We are self-funded, regularly schedule events around Oregon, and are well-linked to the massage community in Oregon, across the country and around the world. We respect the privacy of our members and the public.
