MOAC's Mission Statement
The San Rafael Massage Ordinance Advisory Committee (MOAC), first formalized in 2000, is a volunteer group of healing professionals, business owners and medical professionals. MOAC is dedicated to fair massage and bodywork therapy regulation and practice. We collaborate with state and city officials, media, other allied health care providers, business owners and the public to insure that our communities have safe access to therapeutic bodywork modalities.
Most professional massage therapists want to just do their work in a relaxing environment and not have to worry about licensing and permits and additional certifications. That is why we went to massage school, right? To be able to be qualified to do our work.
But in today's society, especially here in California, it is getting increasingly more difficult to "just do massage". We also have to be politically and legally savvy too! Most of us are drawn to this profession to provide therapeutic and relaxing massage. Together we can help massage therapists be treated as the professional healers we are!
