Prepare, with full- or part-time study, to take the national Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam (MBLEX), administered by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards. You'll learn in labs, classrooms, and in a variety of off-campus settings. After passing that exam, you will be eligible to apply for a state license as a Massage Therapist. Our graduates are automatically eligible to join American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) as professional members..
Massage therapists work in medical settings, nursing homes, rehab centers, and fitness facilities, providing an important component of health and wellness. You may also work with sports medicine or pain management, as well as out of your home, in clients' homes or in a growing number of bodywork centers. This specialty nicely supplements both chiropractic and physical therapies.
