District of Columbia Massage Therapy

Continuing Education Requirements

Massage therapy continuing education requirements for license renewal 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.

What We Can Do For You!

  • You may take a maximum of 6 CE hours through home study programs IF 3 of the 6 hours are in ethics. (Note: if you have already completed your ethics requirement, then a maximum of 3 hours can be completed through our massage-related home study courses.
  • You may take up to 3 hours of continuing education through any of our massage-related courses, with the exception of courses related to animal massage.
  • You can fulfill the Washington D.C. 3 hour ethics requirement through our various ethics continuing education courses.

Because the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies is approved by the NCBTMB as a continuing education Approved Provider, the Washington D.C.Board of Massage will accept our courses.
