Being nationally certified is a commitment to safe and ethical practice and to continuing education for personal and professional development. As the most respected credential in the field of massage and bodywork, national certification communicates that massage therapists possess the core skills, abilities and knowledge to practice ethically, safely and competently.
As massage therapy becomes more integrated in the business and healthcare arenas including hospitals, doctors’ offices, hospice, or wellness and health promotion settings, national certification gives practitioners a competitive edge. Both the public and employers prefer practitioners who are committed to the highest level of professionalism.
