National Board Certified

Licensure (LMT) is a mandatory, entry level credential that allows a massage therapist to practice legally within his/her state. Board Certification is a voluntary, higher level credential that extends beyond the basic requirements to show a deeper commitment to both the profession and the public – including more education, hands-on experience, and requires a background check. Board Certification was created to mirror other medical professions and to tier the massage therapy profession. By maintaining this credential, NCBTMB Certificants can speak to achieving higher credentials than an entry level massage therapist. Simply put, National Board Certified therapists have obtained and hold the highest credential in the massage therapy and bodywork profession.
