Welcome to the First Coast Chapter of the FSMTA serving Licensed Massage Therapists (LMTs) and the Massage Therapy Profession in Northeast Florida. We invite you to sit back, relax, and allow us to share our wonderful Chapter with you.  We hope you find our website useful, friendly and easy to navigate and that you visit us often for your Massage Therapy needs in Northeast, Florida.
