Parish Ordinances Regarding Establishments
Over the years, many parishes have implemented laws regarding massage establishments dating as far back as the 1990's. The Board is aware that some parishes are updating their ordinances in an effort to stop human trafficking and illicit activity. The Board does not have control over the passing of these ordinances. Please note that any ordinance does not supersede the regulations and requirements of LBMT laws. It is the business owner’s responsibility to check with parish municipalities regarding these regulations to ensure compliance. 
 
The easiest way to find out if your parish has an ordinance regarding massage establishments is to Google the following: "Massage Establishment ordinance in (enter your parish)". If there are any ordinances in your parish in relation to massage establishments, the ordinance will provide the department in your parish to contact.
