I recommend checking with the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing who is the governing body for massage therapy licensing in the state.

Why Choose Utah for Massage Therapy Schooling?

Why Choose Utah for Massage Therapy Schooling

Utah is a little unique in the two methods you can choose to earn your license, and I like the option of an apprenticeship to get that hands-on experience while training.

There are some really good schools as you’ll find above and they will all talk you through the process so don’t worry about being uncertain what to do next.

Utah as a state is an awesome place to live if you want a quieter living pace than the large cities. If you’re an outdoors enthusiast you’ll fall in love with the land.

There is always a demand for skilled therapists in the state and are plenty of work opportunities, so take the first step today towards your new career and contact a school in Utah.
