How to Become a Massage Therapist in Mississippi - MS

In Mississippi, massage therapy certification is required to be licensed. The Mississippi State Board of Massage Therapy (MSBMT) is the accrediting body that one must apply to in order to receive a massage therapy license.  The MSBMT requires 700 hours of study in an accredited program and several examinations including CPR, First Aid, HIV/AIDS, and NCETMB examinations.

Here are the steps to become massage therapist in Mississippi:

  1. One must enroll in an accredited massage therapy program. The MSBMT has a list of the programs it accepts. 700 hours of classroom study are required from an accredited school that is recognized by the MSBMT.
  2. Along with the classroom requirements, CPR, First Aid, HIV/AIDS information, and NCETMB (The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork) examinations are required to be passed.
  3. After the completion of a massage therapy program, and all of the required secondary examinations, a written application is submitted to the MSBMT along with an application fee and documentation showing that all license requirements have been met.

The MSBMT will then make a decision after all the above steps are completed. Also, if one is granted a license, a renewal is required every 2 years afterward.
