Massage Therapy License

The City requires a license to practice massage in Hopkins (Hopkins City Code Article XVII. Massage Establishments (PDF)). Massage therapists are only allowed to locate in an existing business where massage therapy is not the primary use. Any person licensed by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practices does not need a massage license from the City of Hopkins, provided that person has shown proof of licensure to the City Clerk.
