Latest COVID-19 Update on States and Territories

Since our first joint statement on 26 March 2020, the landscape continues to be ever changing. The joint Associations have been working tirelessly together in order to provide all members the facts and will continue to seek clarity from both Federal and State Governments as to the directions orders for therapeutic, remedial massage and myotherapy services in each individual state.

As of today, 17 April 2020, the following is a summary of what has been received in writing from the different states and territories:

The following states and territories have confirmed that remedial massage and myotherapy members are permitted to provide professional services at this time:

  • ACT
  • New South Wales
  • Northern Territory
  • Victoria
  • Western Australia

The following states have confirmed that remedial massage and myotherapy members are not permitted to provide professional services at this time:

  • Queensland
  • Tasmania

We continue to seek clarification from South Australia.

Obtaining the facts as they stand on a day-to-day basis has been achieved as a result of the efforts of the combined Association initiative between the Australian Natural Therapy Association (ANTA), Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS), Massage & Myotherapy Australia and Myotherapy Association Australia (MA). We thank you for continuing to support the work that your association is doing at this time, and stay united as a community of health care providers.
