As of April 2018, I have discontinued my affiliation with the NCBTMB as an approved provider. As such, Advanced Massage Techniques is no longer an approved provider in the State of South Dakota.
It is my current understanding that South Dakota massage therapists are required to complete 8 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal.
From the South Dakota Board of Massage Therapy:
The Board accepts continuing education pre-approved by NCBTMB and AMMA, and/or education that meets the definition of massage therapy as stated in SDCL 36-35-1(2). Therefore, compliant CE must fall within these parameters:
(2) “Massage,” the systematic mobilization of the soft tissues of the body through the application of hands or devices for the purposes of therapy, relaxation, or education through means which include:
(a) Pressure, friction, stroking, rocking, kneading, percussion, compression, or stretching;
(b) External application of water, heat, cold, lubricants, or other topical agents; or
(c) The use of devices that mimic or enhance actions done by hands;
(3) “Practice of massage therapy,” the performance of massage for a fee or other compensation or holding oneself out to the public as performing massage.
