Oregon 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 Oregon requires massage therapists to complete 25 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal.

Of the 25 hours, 8 CE hours must be completed in a live classroom setting, this includes your 4 CE hours in ethics. You must take the 1 hour online Pain Management Module provided by the Oregon Pain Management Commission at least once by your next required CE reporting.

You must complete at least 1 CE hour of cultural competency approved by the Oregon Health Authority every other renewal.

What We Can Do For You!

  • You may take up to 17 CE hours of the required 25 through our home study programs.
  • The Oregon Board of Massage will accept all of our 160+ courses to satisfy the 17 hour home study option with the exception of courses related to animal massage, self care or ethics (ethics must be taken in a live class).

If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the Oregon Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the Oregon Board is 503-365-8657 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.
