I didn't see any posts about working in Canada. Here, requirements vary from province to province. The highest requirements are in British Columbia (over 3000 hrs), Ontario (2200 hrs), Newfoundland (2200 hrs), and Alberta (750 hrs), with the rest of the provinces not being regulated. However, to have insurance to practice, one must belong to an association and requirements vary again, usually similar to provincial regulations.

HELP!!! My fiance was born, raised and lives in Australia. He has been here several times on a tourist visa but not that is almost finished completing his Remedial Massage Therapist Diploma - coupled with 200 hours he obtained while going to Potomac Massage Institute in DC - he would live to work in the US. We are already prepared for getting regional and national certification but the problem is finding him sponsorship. Quite frankly, I am not ready to get married so we are trying to find a way he will be able to legally work here. Does anyone know of visa sponsorship in the DC Metro Area for massage therapists? We would consider North Carolina as well but right now, any assistance or a point in the right direction would help. Thank you.

I am finding that searching for information in the native language, swedish, is more productive. no swedish yet so i run things through the google translator and then cut and paste key words into the search. also entire web pages.
i am slowly beginning to gain some of the requirement information.
good luck to others

Cori in Dallas, Texas said: Is there a test you need to take to become certified to do massage or medical qi gong in New Zealand? My Husband who is in Chiropractic school and i plan on opening a clinic in New Zealand. But i can't find anything on a test. thanks for any info!

I am a massage therapist and am immigrating to New Zealand in 8 months. I can get a work permit in New Zealand through my sisters permanant resident status. My understanding is there is no liecensing in NZ, but they do registar them through a site called massage zealand. I am wondering out there from massage therapist working in the auckland area and are doing sports massage and remideal massage. How hard is it to get jobs and what is the rate of pay massage therapist get working in a clinic? I know it cost about 80.00 an hour for a massage there, but how much does the massage therapist get on average from the rate? 50% of it? how about rates between spas, doctor office, physio clinics?
Thanks,

Pete Spairring in Renton, Washington said: Good Luck, right know I wouldn't consider any possibilities of coming to america and doing massage. If Obama gets his way and passes this health care program everything in america will change and most massage therapist in america will have to look for something else to do for work. He is talking about a fedral health care plan and on the fedral level their is no reimbursement for massage therapy because all 50 states do not have high enough requirements for massage licensing.

well, if obama does not pass healthcare reform, you would be out of a job if you got sick and bankrupt, i am all for healtcare reform.. right now we at our chiropratic office charge 280.00 an hour and we get reimmersed for it. that is not right. even if my rate goes down, it would suck, but next year we are charging 320.00 an hour for massage. what gives with that. the balance is messed up. plus, most healthinsurance companies will cover those plans as an add on.

Heya Kelly, I never made it over there (still in Seattle) so I don't have too many answers for you. I did find there is a certification that most employers prefer you obtain. It seemed like a fairly basic exam and was offered in English. Unfortunately I didn't hold on to the literature to be able to specifically give you the name. I also found in communicating with possible employers they all required fluent Swedish. I hope this helped a little!

Re the question about working as a massage Therapist Abroad, the best way to get reliable information is to contact the country's Embassy or consulate here in the US. Just ask them for the requirements to legally pratice in their country and you are likely to get some reliable information. When you are on the ground there, you will be able to better find ways around the system, if you cannot do the whole nine yards of official redtape.

Jim in Mount Pleasant, Michigan

84 months ago

Hi Cora, I hope your search has been productive! In the USA, there is a National Cerification Board, but not all states require a license. For example, Michigan has yet to enact laws governing massage, though they are in process to follow suit with many other states. I am fom Florida, which has a strict licensing process, which includes 500 hours of education from a "nationally accredited" school. From what I understand, the education in NZ and Canada are more extensive, but you still have to get approval if you want the NCBTMB Certification. Unless you plan to practice in a state that has no regulation in place. Also, some cities have their own requirements. So do some homework, and maybe there will be less hoops to jumpthrough than you expected.

Boyfriend_in_Australia in Arlington, Virginia

My boyfriend was born and raised in Australia - came to America and did six months of massage school, went back to Brisbane, started another massage school which he will complete next week. The problem we are facing is trying to find him a sponsor in America so he can do massage therapy in the Washington DC/Baltimore area. If anyone knows of a physician, physical therapy studio or a legitimate massage therapy business who can help, please let me know.

Cora2 in Brisbane, Australia said: Hello,

I've been doing massage for 3 years now - I'm from Australia... Is there anyone here that can tell me what I need to be able to practice massage Legally in another Country. For example, Canada, USA or the UK...

I just don't want to waste my time with more study, then travel and not be employable for it. I can legally live and work in the UK, so if it's better for my career, I can do more training there...

Some advice would be very much appreciated!

Hello Cora

I am from the UK and I did my massage training in Australia several years ago. I've had no problem's getting a massage job here in the UK (as the training in Australia is one of the best) plus getting insurance was easy too. If you come to the UK you could have a look at 'Embody' or 'CTHA' websites.

Good luck

I did my training in the UK. I believe the hours are trasferable in from Australia. If you decide to come to the States, it depends what path of the Staes you are moving to. In Texas, you will need your transcript from your school. If you are short in hours, you will need to make that up, others you might be required to take a textor go back to school. My best advise to you is to find out what part of the states you are moving to, find out the governing body of massage therapy, write them and find out what you will need.
Goodluck!

The same advise I gave to the Australian, I will give to you. I do believe you are a beauty therapist, which is Aethetician and Massage Therapist. In that case you need to find out what prt of the US you are moving to, write the governing board and requirements. Shot me an e-mail to thebeautytherapists@gmail.com, let me know your qualifications and what part of the States you are moving to, and I will direct you to the appropriate agency.
Goodluck!

Joanna, have you already passed the U.S.A.'s national boards (you will need 500 hours of education from a nationally certified school to apply to sit for this test)? You will have to have that license to apply for work in Nevada. Or have you passed the state exam for the state of New York? New York is a state exam and requires 1000 hours of education from a nationally certified school.

I do know that you would not be permitted to work in my home state (Ohio) either, regardless of your extensive background. You would still have to sit for our state board.

If you are it won't be hard to get work but I really don't know about massage work. It's possible to start your won business there without too much trouble. I can help you more with questions about immigration than actually getting a massage job. cheers

claire in Almería, Spain said: The Uk is the most muliticultural island on the planet, I just wish they would enjoy being so...

The UK welcomes small businesses from around the world, each case being taken on individual merit. I employed many different nationalities when running my own business there and it is normal to live in a town with up to 22 different nationalities, all working and living through the generations.

ITEC is the recognised certification for europe. It offers insurance and registration and is a level 3 diploma costing around 1000 pounds and taking as little as 3 months. Most colleges then offer work placements. It maybe that you already have the level required, but the main thing is insurance and being willing to pay UK tax. That clinches the deal in most cases.

There is also a big difference between emigration and imigration, but this is a therapist chat line, so I wont bore you with the details. Dont listen to anyone, get onto a government website or your consulate in London, and look up the details ascertaining to your particular situation. But Skilled and ready to work is very much appreciated by the Uk, I can assure you.

I am afraid because it depends on so many personal things, it is one of those questions you are going to have to ask via the correct channels and one that only has answers for you.

Good luck now.

I want to know Carmen if you got your H2B visa sponsor for doing a massage therapy? My fiance went to school six months here in Washington, D.C. at Potomac Massage Institute then returned back to his home country of Australia where he just finished college and now has the requirement 500 hours to come back to America but we can't find him a sponsor in the Washington, D.C. metro just to do massage. The main issue is he does not have a higher learning degree (bachelor's). We are worried about the state license because he is coming here next month to test out. WE DESPERATELY NEED SOMEONE TO SPONSOR HIM. If anyone knows how we can make this or know of any sponsors in the Washington, D.C. area we can contact, PLEASE let me know. Much appreciated.

The H2B visa, is not for massage therapist, I'm working into a restaurant with this visa. I also need a sponsor, in case I'll have to do the whole training again..
but I haven't reach that point yet.

claire in Almería, Spain said: Hiya

I am presently taking the ITEC massage course as an expat in spain.

I have been told this is not suitable for america and would have to study further to practice there.

In truth, your country's relationship with the UK allows you to come and work with hardly any criteria. Americans are welcome, especially in Ireland.

If you are serious about emigrating, you should do so. Your own professional body will advise you on insurance needs abroad, so contact them. If you are not with a professional body, make sure you link up now, its vital in this type of work, anywhere in the world.

I return to the UK in July and will be looking to offer massage to offices and companies on site. Keep in contact with me from July 2009 and may I wish you every success.

May I also suggest you take a long holiday in England before deciding for sure. There is a real reason I am schooling my children in Spain, as the country has changed for the worse in my opinion. It is recovering though and the Britishness is returning (what that is exactly is anyones, guess!)

Good Luck

Hi Claire,
I'm hopefully moving to Spain from North Ireland this year. The idea is to first learn Spanish in Valencia April/May time, finding it hard to find massage work. Do you have any ideas?
I've been massaging for 5 years and have lots of experience working on sports people and using deep tissue techniques.
If you could offer any advice/help?
Thank you.

I am an American, and lived and worked as a Massage therapist in the US my whole life. I have heard of owners taking a percentage with Credit card tips, because they have to pay a fee each time cards are used...some places don't let the customers leave tips on cards, for that same reason. It really stinks because you have worked there for so long. Do you think it would be better to have a no tipping on credit card policy???? At my spa they started doing that a few years ago...in the beginning they would let the customer leave the tip on the card the first time or 2 and let them know that that would no longer be allowed. With the economy everyone was pretty understanding and within 3 months, no tips were allowed on credit cards anymore..and I didn't lose out majorly...my regulars made sure they brought cash for me and the others, who knows if they would have tipped anyway. Good luck!!

I have heard of some places, typically, spas takinga % of tips. They should only take the % that the credit card company charges so they are not out any money. Usually the % is taken from the amount charged for the massage.

In my private practice, I do not accept tips. It is a decision I made a few years ago. I work in a clinic setting I want my services viewed as part of their health care. If you really look at who we tip in our society, it is for direct entry jobs where an education is not needed; waiers, taxi cab drivers, valet etc. I have too much education from school and CE courses that I have taken around the world to be viewed as anything less. I have also set my rates higher for this reason.

hi all, i am an international student here in Australia and did my Diploma in Remedial massage and also got a massage therapist job in a clinic. I am looking for enhancing my career in massage and so searching for sponsorship job. Will you please help me with some ideas?

Thanks
Nikki
