A Massage therapist license is required of any person performing massage therapy, who has received a massage degree or certificate from an accredited institution. An accredited institution is an educational institution holding accredited status with the United States Department of Education or Minnesota Office of Higher Education. Proof that 500 hours of certified therapeutic massage training has been obtained - in the form of a certified transcript - must be submitted at the time of application
Exempt from licensure are massage therapists that works for, or is an employee of, a licensed medical (or dental) professional.
The City Council approved the ordinance relating to Massage Centers on September 26, 2016. All license holders are required to be familiar with the provisions of this chapter and with applicable Minnesota Statutes and federal regulations.
