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.
