Welcome 2015! This New Year, California massage therapists see our profession becoming more formalized. As of January 1, 2015, the California Massage Therapy Council [camtc.org] requires new criteria for state certification. State certified massage therapists must complete 500 hours of training from an approved massage therapy school, and pass the massage therapy exam administered by MBLx. Healing Hands School is proud to say that our pass rate for the standardized national exam is 100%! We are ready to help our students pass the state exam and enter the profession well trained in their hands-on skills as well as well versed in the body of terminology utilized in our profession. Paula Curtiss’ course, Standardized Test Practice Review, is designed to help students design and practice their study plan to be perfectly prepared for this new state requirement.
