Texas Massage Therapy

Continuing Education Requirements

Massage therapy license requirements vary from state to state, and the laws are constantly changing. It's our current understanding that, in Texas, 12 hours of massage therapy continuing education are required every two years for professional re-licensure.

It is also our understanding that since we are an Approved Provider for the NCBTMB (#049478-00) and a Texas Approved Continuing Education Provider (#CE1428), as of January 1st 2009 the Texas Board of Massage will accept any of our non-massage technique home study programs to fulfill these 12 hours of continuing education.

It is also our understanding that the following programs are accepted for Texas massage therapy license renewal since they are considered non-technique (click on the program below for more information):
