CTA, A Massage Therapy School in Pittsburgh, Explains Why Licensing Matters in Massage…
Thanks Upmc East Hospital for the invitation to participate in National Nurses Week! It was our pleasure to provide complementary massages to your nursing staff. This was also a great opportunity for our Massage Therapy students gain clinical, hands-on training and experience.
Career Training Academy provides unique classroom instruction, student clinics, community events and off campus activities that support the hands-on learning and instruction to prepare students with the skills and confidence to sit for the MBLeX (Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination) and gain licensure.
Why Licensing Matters
Licensure is a regulatory process that ensures practitioners are appropriately qualified and trained to practice on the public. The Pennsylvania State Board of Massage Therapy regulates and licenses persons providing massage therapy services to the general public in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Board’s purpose is to safeguard the public from harm caused by unqualified persons; to ensure the highest degree of professional care and conduct on the part of massage therapists; and to ensure the availability of massage therapy services of the highest quality to persons need of services.
