Schooling and Licensing Requirements in Minnesota

Minnesota is different to most states, in that it does not have a statewide law or registration process to obtain a license to practice as a massage therapist.

There are still some individual requirements in different municipalities, however. So it’s always good practice to check with the relevant county clerk’s office before starting work in a city.

It’s also good practice to study at a school and pass one of the national massage therapy exams. Such as the MBLEx, NCETM, or the NCETMB.

Why Choose Minnesota for Massage Therapy Schooling?

Minnesota is known as the ‘land of 10,000 lakes’, it’s a state with plenty of natural beauty to explore.

An obvious reason to work as a massage therapist in Minnesota is the lack of barriers to entry.

There is no licensing process, reduced fees over other states, and it’s a lot quicker to start working if you have previous experience.

Despite all of this it doesn’t look very competitive when I looked into the amount of therapists in Minnesota, and with plenty of good schools you can get all the training you need.
