Massage Therapy Certification    

What does it mean to be certified in massage therapy?

There are two types of certification in the massage profession.

You can receive a certification after completing a course of study in a specific modality such as deep tissue therapy, cranio-sacral therapy and be certified by that school or educator.  It does not mean you are able to practice massage legally and charge for your services.  

National Massage Therapy Certification is different and requires that you fulfill specific education and training requirements.  National Certification is regulated by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.  

There is much controversy over the issue of national certification and the process that it uses to credential massage therapists.

You can read more about the issues and find some resources on alternatives in the licensing and legislation pages.
