The MNZ membership year runs from 1st April to 31st March each year.

As from 1 April 2017, the levels of membership for Registered Massage Therapists (formally Remedial Massage Therapists and Certified Massage Therapists) has changed. Please refer to the Levels page for more information.

All new memberships are charged a one off non-refundable administration fee. This fee is $50 for applicants who achieved their qualification in NZ and $200 for applicants who achieved their qualification overseas. A pro-rata reduction in fees is offered only ONCE for members joining during the year. The amount will be specified by MNZ, once your application has been approved. Pro-rata fees are not available for membership renewals.

Upgrades from one level of Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) to another, e.g. from level 4 or 5 to level 6 or 7, and from student to RMT are free. This covers until the end of the current membership period. When the new membership period begins, full fees are payable. Fees include GST
