No you do not. What you need is to go to a private school. About half of the states in the US require a license to practice massage therapy (check which ones at the American M…assage Therapy Association Website: www.amtamassage.org or with www.massagetherapy.com ). There are lots of schools offering massage education. Hands-on teaching is one of the most important aspects. A solid understanding of proper hand and body mechanics as well as anatomy and physiology are also key. Ask local therapists what school they went to and what they liked about it. Most reputable schools have been in business 10 years or more. Be careful, some schools use questionable or unethical tactics to get your money. I had lots of referrals to the school I finally chose and it has been the best choice I've ever made. I am now teaching at the school as an assistant instructor five years later. The Cortiva Institute is the largest in the nation with over 8 separate schools and campuses, while the Swedish Institute in NY is the oldest. There are also good schools in North Carolina, such as Natural Touch in Greensboro and Hickory, www.naturaltouchschools.com. There are now more 2 year college massage programs available which make it more affordable. Figure out what you need in your state, what your personal need are as far as how you learn best and find a school that can fulfill your needs. Yes, you have to go to collage to be a massage therapist but only for four years

The following is written by and according to the U.S. Department of Labor and particular to the education and training required for Occupational Therapists. Occupational ther…apists are regulated in all 50 States. Individuals pursuing a career as an occupational therapist usually need to earn a post-baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university or education deemed equivalent. Education and training. A master's degree or higher in occupational therapy is the minimum requirement for entry into the field. In 2007, 124 master's degree programs offered entry-level education, 66 programs offered a combined bachelor's and master's degree, and 5 offered an entry-level doctoral degree. Most schools have full-time programs, although a growing number are offering weekend or part-time programs as well. Coursework in occupational therapy programs include the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences as well as the application of occupational therapy theory and skills. Programs also require the completion of 6 months of supervised fieldwork. People considering this profession should take high school courses in biology, chemistry, physics, health, art, and the social sciences. College admissions offices also look favorably on paid or volunteer experience in the health care field. Relevant undergraduate majors include biology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, liberal arts, and anatomy. Licensure. All States regulate the practice of occupational therapy. To obtain a license, applicants must graduate from an accredited educational program and pass a national certification examination. Those who pass the exam are awarded the title "Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR)." Specific eligibility requirements for licensure vary by State. Other qualifications. Occupational therapists need patience and strong interpersonal skills to inspire trust and respect in their clients. Patience is necessary because many clients may not show rapid improvement. Ingenuity and imagination in adapting activities to individual needs are assets. Those working in home health care services also must be able to adapt to a variety of settings. Advancement. Occupational therapists are expected to continue their professional development by participating in continuing education courses and workshops. In fact, a number of States require continuing education as a condition of maintaining licensure. Therapists are increasingly taking on supervisory roles. Because of rising health care costs, third-party payers are beginning to encourage occupational therapist assistants and aides to take more hands-on responsibility for clients. Occupational therapists can choose to advance their careers by taking on administrative duties and supervising assistants and aides. Occupational therapists also can advance by specializing in a clinical area and gaining expertise in treating a certain type of patient or ailment. Therapists have specialized in gerontology, mental health, pediatrics, and physical rehabilitation. In addition, some occupational therapists choose to teach classes in accredited occupational therapy educational programs.
