I am Deborah Baker, a New Jersey licensed massage therapist. I graduated from the National Institute of Massage Therapy in Turnersville, NJ in 2006. I have been certified by NCBTMB since 2006 and state licensed since 2007. I have been a member
of the Association for Bodywork and Massage Professionals since I was a student in 2005. Continuing education is important to me, and the courses I take are driven by my clients' needs. I have advanced certifications in reflexology, aromatherapy, trigger point therapy, lymphatic drainage, hot stone massage, pre-natal massage, and massage for sports injuries, fibromyalgia, headaches, and PTSD.
Therapeutic massage, when not accompanied by a prescription, is taxed by the state of NJ.
When accompanied by a prescription from a doctor or psychologist, massage is not taxable, and may even be allowed as a medical expense.
