Massage therapy license requirements vary from state to state and the laws are constantly changing. It is our current understanding that Virginia requires massage therapists to complete 24 CE hours every 2 years for license renewal, of which 1 CE hour must be in ethics, or the therapist must hold a current certification from the NCBTMB.
If you would like to verify this information, or have further questions regarding your massage therapy continuing education requirements, we suggest contacting the Virginia Board of Massage directly. The telephone number for the Virginia Board is 804-367-4400 or visit their website at https://www.dhp.virginia.gov/nursing/nursing_laws_regs.htm.
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).
