What qualifications are required to be a massage therapist?

Beth Morris

Requirements vary from state to state. Currently 29 states have certification or licensing requirements Florida, Nebraska, New York, Oregon and Washington have strict licensing requirements. Some states leave the regulation process to county or city offices. Most commonly massage schools offer programs of 500 to 1000 hours, depending on state requirements. Students learn anatomy and physiology, pathology, kinesiology, evaluation and assessment skills, and a variety of massage techniques. Feel free to discuss with me, what skills and experience I have that might be helpful in your session.
