I'm just curious to see if anyone else out there as received their training online. I completed an online training course about 1 1/2 yrs ago and I'm really glad I chose that route. I was able to study at my own pace and set a realistic goal as to when I would complete the training. It was hard work because I still had to take quizzes and exams but I think it paid off in the end. It was inexpensive compared to outside schools and I feel as though I've learned just as much (if not more) than those who have gone to an actual accredited massage school. I know the laws and regulations are different for each state but in WI, you just can't state your title as being "Certified Massage Therapist". We have to call ourselves "Massage Practitioners or Technicians". (you legally cannot say you are certified or licensed if you are not)I've been successful this far so I have no complaints. I know others have told me that they wish they wouldn't have taken the national exam because it really doesn't mean anything except that you can pass a test and say you are licensed. I could pass the same test if I wanted to by taking the alternative exam. I have enough hours and knowledge of the field but I chose not to do so because then you are required to keep up with CEU's and the insurance costs are much higher. Please let me know your thoughts & if you had the opportunity to learn about this field online.

Hey all,
I personally prefer an actual massage school that is well known. Although it is more money, It is money well spent. I believe that it is more beneficent. I feel that they prepare you better and The instructor gives you insight on various techniques, while passing on their vast knowledge. Ultimately it depends on what works for you. Which is why there are so many choices to choose from! I am surprised that others have told you that they regret taking the NCBTMB. While it may not be required in every state, It lets it be known that you are certified and capable.

National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.
You are in the only state in the nation that does not use the dept of health or massage board, but rather the medical board. Unless it has changed, you are not required to have the national either. They dont use it there.
Many of us wonder why we maintain it - its expensive and not neccesary. After 4 states and 12 years, it never did a thing for me.

I suggest you call whatever state you think you might move to first. Reciprocity is not in all states, and with a Medical board license like Ohio, you may be required to go back to school again in the new state but You should not be required to take the National (NCBTMB) again - I would - again - call, but you shouldnt have to because you would already have it but you will have to add more hours of FL law, ethics, etc...keep in mind that unless you chose to take the NCBTMB on your own, Ohio does not test in that.

don't know about online schools but I have an online Massagetherapy Exam Review - everybody needs to pass the licensure exam - online review seems to work well and I've noticed the following: The people that pass do this:

1. 1. people that pass study 2 to 3 months
2. they study 1 to 2 hours a day
3. Start a study group
4. find a study buddy
5. go to a review seminar
6. make flash cards
7. make audio tapes and listen to the material until you can't stand your own voice
8. Take a refresher course
9. review your old class notes
10. Talk with people that have just passed the exam and find what strategies they have used

With friendly greetings,

Linton

Try relaxing before it by treating yourself to a massage first. Thats what I did, It helps relax you so your not as nerves for it. And try not to overthink the questions 9 times out of 10 your first instinct is correct, the ones i secound guessed myself on and went back and changed them are the ones i got wrong. Best of luck to you.

I have a question-- do all of you have your own business or did you just get your training and start doing massage? My interest is just to give people massage at my home-- I have a table and room set up, but do you know if you can do that without a business degree? Also, is there an accredited on-line school? If not I suppose I can wait to go to one when I am back in the States. Thanks anyone who can help!

I went to an accredited school in florida. Graduated and passed the national exam. I practiced in florida for a few months then due to a family situation I moved back to ohio, Well ohio dosen't recognize the national exam and said i would have to do schooling over. So i said forget that and did something else for a while. That has been 4 years and since then the law has changed in ohio and now i just have to take the exam. So I paid my dues studied for a few weeks took the exam and failed. I thought the information would just come back to me obviously not. So I am looking for a refresher course in northeast ohio to help me out a little bit. If anyone has any suggestions please let me no thank you!!!

I would suggest buying Mosbys Massage Therapy Review book. It contains all the areas of review that you will need. My suggestion is pay extra attention to:
Pathology
Muscle origin/insertion/action
Ethical practice, standards
above all
ASIAN MEDICINE....that is the area where most people fail..trust me..I am on my second test and I am studying for a test date late March.
Stay tuned, and good luck!

I like giving massages and I was thinking to go to a school that teaches you how to become a massage therapist. So I want online and I researched schools that do this and I found this one called “The National Massage Therapy Institute” I think this is a good school to go to, they provide you the quality, hands-on training and everything you need to have a rewarding career in Massage Therapy. The instructors and staff have massage and healthcare background. They offer flexible training programs and also have financial plans that will work for any one. The web site is www.studymassage.com . I think it is a good school to go to but if anyone has any suggestions please let me no thank you!!!

Shannon in Palmdale, California

I took the National Exam in 2006 and passed because I had to in Las Vegas, but now I moved to CA and they don't recognize it. Out here the requirements vary from city to city. Most cities require 500+ hours but San Diego and Thousand Oaks require 1000 which I didn't get from school. The city of Santa Monica requires you to take another test with questions on the modalities, anat/phys. and city laws, etc. I'm sure other cities do as well. I only have like 700 with Continuing Ed and my original 600. I will keep my certification though since so many states recognize it. I paid $10,000 for school and I must say you get what you pay for. I ended up paying like $1600 to take courses on pregancy massage, and deep tissue among other things. I think I saved money compared to another program but I ended up losing time taking courses that I probably could have learned if I had been in a better program. I would also have enough hours to work anywhere in the U.S. I know to sit for the national exam you have to have a certain amount of clock hours and hands-on hours. My thoughts on the board itself are mixed. They have so much inner turmoil and they want to try to tell us waht to do and fork over more of our money to get recertified. We do it b/c we don;t want to go thru taking that test all over again.

I'm taking my national tomorrow...I read some of your posts about Asian modalities. Fortunately, my school offered a 6 week program in Chinese Medicine. I know that one of things that really helped me understand the meridians is this dance that my teacher made up to help us remember them. Here is what I know

Circuits Run:
Yin: chest to fingers
Yang: fingers to face
Yang: face to feet
Yin: feet to chest

1st Circuit:

LU (lung): lung to thumb
LI (large intestine): index finger to opposite nostril
ST (stomach): below eye to 2nd toe
SP (spleen): big toe to ribs

2nd Cictuit:

HT (heart): armpit to pinky
SI (small intestine): pinky to ear cartilage
UB (urinary bladder): eyebrow to wee wee toe (baby toe) =)
K (kidney): soles of feet to clavicle

3rd Circuit:

PC (pericardium): nipple to bird finger (middle finger)
TW (triple warmer): (3 rings) ring finger, earring, eyebrow ring
GB (gallbladder): spock ears to 4th toe
LV (liver): big toe to chest

I know it sounds kinda goofy...but it was fun to learn and its really helped me memorize the order. I hope it can help some of you. I also took a Reiki I class outside of my school. My masters name is Gerry Eitner...shes AMAZING! Anyways, she was telling us that sometimes when people have attunements through Reiki they start to understand Asian Medicine better. Some students of Reiki will start to write in Japanese and Chinese symbols and know what they mean without any prior experience with the language. It's just a very interesting concept. Anyways...I hope that the Meridian dance helps you guys...I know that the Generating Cycle can also be confusing...my best advice is to draw it over and over and over and list the Zang and Fu organs, emotions, seasons, tastes and sounds next to each element so that it will help you memorize them. =) You can send me a friend request at www.myspace.com/kristy1010 if you have any questions! Good luck to everyone on their exam!!!!!!!!

I passed the National Exam on March 22. Everyone has their own way of studying. I reviewed from two study guides, Mosbys massage review, and review for massage therapy by Duke Cassel. The charts of the meridians were most beneficial and the pathologic symptoms of each meridian. I would say there were at least 35 questions on Asian medicine alone. Make sure you brush up on muscles orgin insertion and function especially forearm, scapula, rhomboids, etc. I have made a personal study guide from both review books if anyone is interested pls let me know and I will send it to you. Good luck!

I think I only had like 3 questions on business.

I would be glad to share my easy study notes. Once you get these down I think it makes sense. One thing I did when I first started the test was to write all of the meridians down on the piece of paper they provide to you and then you can refer to it during the test. I swear it helps.

I also signed up for a month on massagexam.com and I think that really helped.

Good luck!!

You would be better to contact the Ohio Chapter of the AMTA. State Medical Board is difficult to reach. I just graduated from massage school, and sit boards in June. From what I hear, you will probably have to start over from the beginning if you want to practice in Ohio. For us they required 750 hours at an accredited school. If you are in southern Ohio, I believe Kentucky accepts NCBTMB. Ohio does not accept NCBTMB at all. From what I have heard, they feel the NCBTMB leaves too much out. Ohio is big on the physiological effects, therapeutic applications, contraindications, and pathologies. Hope this helps.

My point is exactly that. Only in Ohio is Kellogg the bible albiet a century old Bible. I've practiced for 30 years and hold multiple licenses; including OH, NY and KY but Kellogg though not without merit is only another standard protocal amongst so very many valuable modalities. I didn't mean to offend you. I troubles me to see, repeatedly, that Ohio has a 50 to 65% pass rate and that a majority of Ohioans on this site don't even mention the state exam. I wish the medical board would give massage to a propriatary board that could freely encompass the ever broadening horizions of those who follow this path.

I'm glad to help but want to give you specific ways to insure you will know what you know. If you can wait for an answer I'll be able to be sure I direct you towards the tools you are looking for. I've never met anyone that wasn't worried in the last 2 months so remember you're absolutely normal.
I dislike the trickery too. I'll get back to you in the next two weeks with some tools. are you taking the nationals? You can work after graduation in Indiana with certification that requires only your diploma and ID. Kentucky accepts the Nationals. I'm working constantly on the future of this profession so if you email me again in a week or two I will give you solid avenues to find what you need. Good Luck!

HI everyone! OK, this is in response of the Kellogg man (mind you though, this was the only info we learned at our school back in Va. about him and it comes from the Fundamentals of Therapeutic Massage-3rd edition Mosby

Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943) Founder of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan, wrote dozens of articles and two textbooks on massage and hydrotherapy and edited and published a popular magazine, Good Health. and yes, he came from the same cereal family!
Not sure if this was any help...wasn't for us either..lol
Good luck!

I took the December 07 board and there were quite a few CDC questions about solutions and water temperatures, and actually there were some muscle questions of the massage portion, and hydrotherapy,little but anyway. there were pharm questions, but they were more common sense than anything. Case studies, like "Carol comes for a massage and she has swelling in her left leg what is the first thing u do?" and generally its refer to a physician. If your teacher gives u any study sheets with questions from past boards, those were very helpful for me. I still have them my email addy is heatherjmccormick@yahoo.com i will make copies and send them to you if you'd like.

Hi Heather,
I bet you can ! My clients used to say I gave a neo-seudo-swedish-jewish massage.......
I think you will have an amazing career. Eventually, you may find that teaching what you've learned to next generation is touching the future; they will do things we never dreamed of.
I'm always looking for resources that will empower my teachers and students to conquer the nationals and Ohio state boards. I'd be grateful for anything you want to contribute.
As an educator I am aware that there are 4 tracks that I'm responsibile for if my students are to have a real career. preparation for National exam, State Boards. Actual,effective, clinical skills and the ability to handle their practice,clients,and personal well being as well as controling a profitable business/ practice.
Ohio is an entity unto it's own lol

Hello everyone!
I have been reading everyones posts and I think this site is great...My test is coming up on May 24th and this will be the 3rd time I am taking it. So I am pretty nervous and I keep seeing go over your Meridians and Asian Medicine. I live in North Carolina and i was just wondering if the test were pretty much the same in every state or are they different for some states. I have been going over my meridians and also was wondering if anyone could tell me exactly what to study in Asian medicine?....Thanks so much!

Tammy in Cincinnati, Ohio said: I passed the National Exam on March 22. Everyone has their own way of studying. I reviewed from two study guides, Mosbys massage review, and review for massage therapy by Duke Cassel. The charts of the meridians were most beneficial and the pathologic symptoms of each meridian. I would say there were at least 35 questions on Asian medicine alone. Make sure you brush up on muscles orgin insertion and function especially forearm, scapula, rhomboids, etc. I have made a personal study guide from both review books if anyone is interested pls let me know and I will send it to you. Good luck!

What I wanted to know is what school did you go to? It sounds like your teachers were devoted to teaching in any capacity...! And, I love that!

I would need your email address to send the Asian study guide. Do you have the Trail Guide to the Body book?
