Pass My MBLEx Massage Therapy Licensure Exam

This page is under construction thank you for your understanding 8/31/16

The question most Massage Therapy Students have on their mind is "how do I Pass My MBLEx Massage Therapy Licensure Exam"? Passing the MBLEx is a process that begins with a state approved massage therapy school.  It can often take some time to assimilate all of the educational material necessary for passing the MBLEx or any state licensure examination. 

We have begun a video library in order to provide massage therapy students or graduates an easy and effective way to review educational concepts necessary for passing any massage therapy licensure examination.  As we continue to build our video library we have also come across a few web sites as educators of massage therapy ourselves that are helpful to both massage therapy students and graduates preparing to take a licensure examination.  In addition We have compiled a collection of review guides that provide excellent review materials.

The Application Procedure for the MBLEx

First we would like to offer some more specific information on the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards and applying for the MBLEx (Massage and Bodywork Licensure Examination).   The examination fee is $195.  The examination is comprised of 100 multiple choice questions, with a time limit of two hours.  The massage therapy student does not need to wait until graduation to apply for or take this examination.  It is highly recommended that you be prepared to take the examination before you apply to sit for the Massage and Bodywork Licensure Exam.  The licensure process requires an application through a state massage therapy board, each state has its own application procedure for licensure.
