What is the difference between what a Certified Massage Technician and a Licensed Massage Therapist can do?

Only a Licensed Massage Therapist can work on medically diagnosed conditions. A Certified Massage Technician is prohibited from working on medically diagnosed conditions and from working on referrals from a physician or chiropractor. Also, the Certified Massage Technician may neither call himself or herself a “therapist” nor use the word “therapy” in describing his or her profession nor in any way imply that he or she is certified to practice massage therapy.
