Massage Therapy Licensure in Nebraska
Nebraska massage therapists are regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services under the advisement of the Board of Massage Therapy. Nebraska requires massage therapists to be at least 19 years of age, to display evidence of good character, and to meet education and examination requirements. Educational requirements are set higher than they are in most states, at least for massage therapists seeking first-time licensure. However, massage therapists who are licensed in other states can use alternative methods to show that they have met education and training requirements.
Massage Therapist Educational Requirements
First-time massage therapists must complete programs of at least 1,000 hours.
The massage therapy student will need 100 hours in each of the following areas:
- Hygiene and Practical demonstration
- Health service management
