Oklahoma Massage Therapist Licensing and Certification Requirements
If you've graduated from a massage school in Oklahoma and are interested in practicing massage therapy as your career, it is important to stay up to date on the rules and regulations that apply to massage therapists in Oklahoma to verify what the requirements are. Massage therapists in the State of Oklahoma are advised to check their local municipalities to see what license is required as there are not currently statewide certification or licensure procedures in place.
Oklahoma Massage Therapy Board - New License Requirements
The Oklahoma Massage Coalition is requesting that in order to obtain a license to practice massage in the State of Oklahoma, that the legislature enforce a minimum of 500 hours in a state approved course curriculum and a passing certificate from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
Oklahoma City is the only municipality in the Oklahoma City-County Department's (OCCHD) jurisdiction that requires a license for massage establishments and for individuals to perform massage within OKC city limits. See additional resources below for further information.
