Massage Establishment Information

The City of Brea no longer issues Massage Technician Permits. A State of California Certification is now required in addition to a City of Brea business license. If you currently hold a City of Brea Massage Technician Permit, it remains valid until its expiration date, after which time a State Certification needs to be in effect.

For information regarding how to obtain State Certification, please visit their website at CAMTC. For all contracted Therapists and Practitioners (non W-2 employees), a Business License is required to practice massage within the City limits. A Business License can be obtained by visiting the Administrative Services counter on the third floor of the Brea Civic & Cultural Center. The telephone number is (714) 990-7686.

The City of Brea will continue to issue Massage Establishment Permits and monitor Establishments in accordance with Ordinance No. 1136 that is effective as of April 6, 2010. Also, review updates in Ordinance No. 1180, (01/19/16) revising regulation for massage establishments.
