To operate a business devoted solely to massage therapy, the business must be licensed and the therapist certified by conforming to the requirements established in Chapter 125, specifically:

  • Complete a detailed City of Fridley application;
  • Provide evidence of qualifications to practice massage;
  • Provide character references; and
  • Follow all other guidelines listed in Section 125.06.
All applications are then submitted to our police department for internal approval.

The City does allow exceptions, as specified in Section 125.03.  Furthermore, a bona fide massage therapist is exempt from licensing requirements provided they can provide proof of meeting the following criteria:

  1. A minimum of 150 hours certified therapeutic massage therapy training by a bona fide state or natural therapeutic massage organization of which the massage therapist is a member in good standing.
  2. A current membership, in good standing, with a bona fide national or state therapeutic massage organization (approved by the city) with a written and enforceable code of ethics.
  3. Insurance coverage of one million dollars for personal liability in the practice of therapeutic massage.
