Massage therapy license requirements vary from state to state and the laws are constantly changing. It's our current understanding that Washington, D.C. requires massage therapists to complete 12 CE hours every two years. Of the 12 CE hours, 3 CE hours must be in ethics and 9 CE hours must massage-related course work.
