Any person performing massage therapy within the city limits must obtain a Massage Therapist Permit as specified in Municipal Code 5.32.  Whether you are applying for a new primary massage therapist permit or are currently licensed in another city under the Coachella Valley Model Massage Ordinance, you cannot practice in the City until a permit has been issued.

Applications and instructions for the permit are available for download.  In addition to completing the application, you will need to pick up a Live Scan Request for Service Form from our office.  For more information about massage therapy permits, visit the Permit Center, Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., and Fridays, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. or call (760) 777-7125.
