What do you need to know to become a massage therapist

In order to become a massage therapist you need to know your state’s licensing requirements. Almost all states in the United States require you to attend a Massage School for at least 500 hours and pass a test. Search the internet for your state’s Board of Massage; most will list licensing requirements.

In addition to learning massage techniques, body mechanics, assessment, stretches, and indications/contraindications, your schooling will include at least Anatomy, Physiology and Business.
