Simplifying the Florida Application Process
If you are transferring your license from another state, or seeking your first massage license in the state of Florida, you may have found the application process is not quick and easy.
Having gone through the process myself, I can testify firsthand about the confusion and frustration that can accompany the process.
The good news is you don’t have to suffer as I did.
I’ve helped over 700 massage therapists make their professional move to the Sunshine State a little easier, and I want to help you too!
There is a question on the Florida application that seems simple, but unfortunately is not.
“Are you applying for licensure as a Massage Therapist by Endorsement or as a Massage Therapist by Examination?”
What does that question mean, and how are you supposed to know the answer?
To help eliminate confusion and unexpected surprises, I have created a flow chart to help you quickly identify which method of licensure you qualify for.
Do You Have a Special Situation?
Were you grandfathered into licensure in your state or practice in a state that does not require a licensing exam?
Unfortunately, completion of the NCETMB, NCETM, NESL, or MBLEx is mandatory for licensure in Florida.
I have contacted the Florida Board of Massage on several occasions regarding special situations for therapists who haven’t taken a licensing exam.
I have yet to learn of an exception to this requirement.
While is not fun for me to tell you this, I would rather you be informed and prepared upfront than to receive an unpleasant surprise in the middle of the process.
I am sure you think you have forgotten everything you learned in school, but you haven’t. No one likes exams. You can do this.
Can I have more than one massage therapy license?
Luckily massage licenses are not like citizenship; you do not have to relinquish one for another. You can hold a license in all fifty states if you want to.
Getting a license in Florida does not negate the current massage license you hold. If you keep both licenses current, you will just be dually licensed.
I hold both Iowa and Florida massage licenses. I just follow the laws in the state that I am practicing.
Here is a quick list of some other frequently asked questions.

“You have been awesome and amazing! I assumed these courses would take weeks of reviewing and study, yet I did it all in a few days!
For you to have simplified and streamlined the process, AND include the courses for $79 is just refreshing and tribute to your profession.

Let’s Do This!
Florida allows one year from your application date to complete all the necessary steps in the licensing process.
When everything goes smoothly, it typically takes about six (6) weeks to complete the application process.
However, I have found the longer I give myself to complete a project, the less likely I am to finish it.
If becoming a Florida massage therapist is your goal, dream or passion, the earlier you start, the sooner (and more likely) you will achieve success!
So grab your 10 hour Florida Laws course and step-by-step licensing checklist, and let’s get you working in Florida!
Remember, I love to help people accomplish their goals, so if you have further questions or run into any snags along the way, I want to hear from you.
