Hawaii 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 Hawaii requires massage therapist to complete 12 CE hours every 2 years by June 30th of each even year.

Of these 12 CE hours, 2 hours must be in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or other emergency-related courses.

What We Can Do For You!

  • You may complete 10 of your 12 required continuing education hours through home study programs. Your CPR, first aid, or other emergency-related hours must be earned in an environment that provides a hands-on training component.
  • The Hawaii Board of Massage has not yet finalized the approval process for continuing education course. They have only indicated that the 10 hours shall be in courses that enhance the skills and knowledge of the massage therapist, including, but not limited to professional ethics, theory and practice of massage therapy, modalities, and professional development. However, practice-building courses will not be accepted. Since there is yet to be a determination as to how providers and courses will be approved, we cannot advise on this at this time.

If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the Hawaii Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the Hawaii Board is 808-586-2694 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.
