Become a Massage Therapist: 

Lock Haven University now offers Massage Therapy Certificate Program

Massage therapy is an exciting and growing field.  In order to become a massage therapist, you must get licensed in the state in which you would like to practice.  Each state has specific requirements for licensure that include:

  • Educational program that has a specific hour requirement
  • Pass a background check
  • Pass the national exam - the MBLEx

Our Enrollment Counselors will walk you through what your state's requirements are.  Let us know in which state you are seeking licensure in the form to the left, and we will tailor your learning plan to that state.

How the Program Works:


The online classes can be taken from any device, including your smartphone. This allows you to jump in and work on your coursework any time. These classes cover business, theory, and science, and are designed to be completed at your own pace.  Finally, there is no semester system and no start or end date for the online courses. The instructors are all licensed massage therapists who will guide you throughout your massage therapy education.


Hands-on training is the essential part of becoming a skilled massage therapist. Licensed Massage Therapist instructors will offer structure learning, supervision, and mentorship at a nearby clinic working in a small group of students.

I have been thinking about starting my education to become a massage therapist but I couldn't justify taking all the time off from work and away from my kids. This program allows me to start the process with less money and time committed. I honestly don't know when I would have been able to start on this new career path without this program.

Job Outlook for Massage Therapists

Employment of massage therapists is projected to grow 22 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand will likely increase as more healthcare providers understand the benefits of massage and these services become part of treatment plans.

As an increasing number of states adopt licensing requirements and standards for therapists, the practice of massage is likely to be respected and accepted by more people as a way to treat pain and to improve overall wellness. Similarly, as more healthcare providers understand the benefits of massage, demand will increase as these services become part of treatment plans.
