Are criminal background checks involved?

Yes, Sec. 19-72, requires the applicant for a massage therapist license or massage therapy establishment license be subjected to a criminal background investigation upon submitting a completed application for a new or renewed license.  It is also required in the event a massage therapy establishment licensee submits a complete application to change the location of their establishment.
