To become a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Texas you must meet the minimum 500 hours of education required by The Department of Licensing and Regulation. (https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/mas/mas.htm)
A massage program is allowed to set the schedule and cost of the program, but TDLR and state law mandates everything else including the curriculum. (https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/mas/forms/curriculumoutline500.pdf)
What this means to the prospective student is all schools must teach the same subjects and follow the same regulations required by TDLR. Some schools that offer government loans (financial aid) teach more than the required hours costing the student more money yet after school is completed the student receives the same license to practice massage therapy in the state of Texas.
No matter how many hours a school teaches, the required 450 classroom hours and 50 hour of clinical services must be included in order for the student to be eligible to become licensed in Texas. Once you’re licensed, TDLR regulates how you are going to advertise, your continuing education, how you prepare consultation documents, and scope of practice, TDLR does not regulate those additional hours nor do they count any differently than the required 500 hour minimum. (https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/mas/masrules.htm)

Our system is about taking the required curriculum and being sure the student is prepared for a successful transition from the classroom to employment the day they obtain their license so they can begin to earn a living as a massage therapist.

About Massage Therapy
Massage therapy dates back thousands of years, yet was only introduced to the United States by two American physicians in the 1850’s. With scientific and technological advances in the medical treatments during the 1930s and 1940s, massage fell out of favor in the United States. Interest in massage revived in the 1970s, especially among athletes.
Massage therapy starts by soothing the nervous system which controls and coordinates the whole body. As the stress level is reduced the circulation and lymph systems flows better, blood flow provides the rich nutrients and oxygen the body need to repair and remove waste from all the cells of the body. The best benefit is the release of higher levels of the hormones dopamine and serotonin which make you feel better and reduce pain while reducing cortisol which causes stress levels to rise. High stress levels interfere with all the functions of the body and can lead to more serious conditions. Another benefit of the massage is muscles become less tense and with the arteries and veins winding though the muscular system the circulatory system flows even better.
What is the Goal of Massage Therapy?
But be aware, there are side effect from receiving a massage. Besides feeling happier, respiration, digestion, coordination, and body-mind connection improves. Less stress and relaxed muscles could improve sleep and improved sleep could result in better decision making. Better decision making could lead to more production in your home and work life. Improved home and work life could lead to better relationships and better relationships could lead to becoming a happier person.
What Does Massage Cure?
Massage also benefits the everyday back, shoulder, and neck pain associated with our daily routines and helps athletes and weekend warriors recover quicker. Massage increases range of motion, joint flexibility and reduces muscle cramps and spasms.
