COMTA logo 140COMTA Accreditation
The Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy was the first massage/bodywork training school in Virginia with a COMTA-accredited program. As a nonprofit, independent body, COMTA's mission is to maintain and improve quality assurance in massage therapy and bodywork education by recognizing post-secondary schools and programs through an accreditation process. Schools and programs achieve this recognition by continually demonstrating their compliance with a commitment to standards developed and monitored by the commission. This process assures that students receive quality education and training; therefore, the industry receives competently trained practitioners and the public receives quality services.

The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) is the national credentialing body for massage therapists and bodyworkers. It develops standardized examinations that cover a core body of knowledge, promotes professional development and offers a recertification program to renew its credential. This non-profit organization represents more than 91,000 nationally certified practitioners and works to serve all those who are touched by the field of therapeutic massage and bodywork.

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) is the Commonwealth’s coordinating body for higher education. SCHEV administers a variety of educational programs that benefit students, faculty, parents and taxpayers and also helps policymakers, college administrators and other concerned leaders work cooperatively and constructively to advance educational excellence.
