Pennsylvania Massage Therapy

Continuing Education Requirements

Massage therapy license requirements vary from state to state, and the laws are constantly changing. It is our current understanding that Pennsylvania requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which 4 CE hours must be in ethics.

Massage therapists may take only 8 of the total 24 continuing education hours required through home study programs. It is our understanding that the Pennsylvania Board of Massage will accept all of our courses to satisfy the 8-hour home study option with the exception of courses related to office management, practice building or animal massage.

If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the Pennsylvania Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the Pennsylvania Board is 717-783-7155 or visit their website at

Remember, the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider (#049478-00) and Health Positive! is a division of the Institute. All of our continuing education programs can be used for your Board Certification renewal.

You may also use our credits for other organizations you belong to such as the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) or Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).
