The mission of the South Dakota Board of Massage Therapy is to protect the health and safety of the public by mandatory licensure of qualified persons and enforcement of the statutes, rules, and regulations governing the practice of massage therapy, including processing and investigating properly filed complaints and holding hearings as warranted.
The Board recently transitioned to a new management firm. On behalf of myself and our staff, we appreciate the opportunity to work with the Board and massage therapists across the state. The Board's new contact information is listed below. Over the next few months we will be adding documents and information to this website to help ensure all pertinent information is easily accessible by licensees and the public. We hope it will be a useful resource.
Do not hesitate to contact our office if you have questions. We appreciate your patience during this transition and will work hard to respond all licensee requests in a timely manner.
