The Alabama Board of Massage Therapy (the Board) was recently made aware that new products advertised to
massage therapists have been introduced into the Alabama marketplace. Some of these new products claim
to be approved by the Board and may contain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The use of oils, lotions or
creams that contain THC are strictly prohibited in the State of Alabama. The Board has not reviewed or
approved the use of any specific brand product for use in massage therapy. Any company claiming to
have a product that has been approved by the Board is making a false statement. The Board encourages
all licensed massage therapists to be aware of all ingredients contained in any product used when
performing massage therapy.
2022 Law Changes
The Alabama Board of Massage Therapy was successful in amending its statute and will be promulgating rules in the next few months.
