If you live in Hawaii and are considering a career in massage, or a mainland massage therapist wanting to work in Hawaii, chances are you have looked over the requirements to get a Hawaii massage license to work in the Aloha state.
Now, you are not only confused but overwhelmed with the requirements. Laws and rules, although in English, are written by lawmakers in “Legalese.” Government board websites are not user-friendly and often difficult to navigate. You may find yourself still asking which steps you need to complete to meet the requirements.
I have assisted hundreds of massage therapists through the process of obtaining a massage license and moving to another state.
Before making the move or jump into the profession, some planning is required to make sure you meet all of the requirements. By the time we are done here, you should know everything you need to do to be licensed in paradise.
The three basic requirements for obtaining a Hawaii Massage License
- Complete and show proof of acceptable massage training
- Complete CPR Certification
- Pass the Hawaii State Massage Exam
I am going to break down each one of these requirements, because each step is slightly more complex than indicated above.
