I have noticed lately that people do not know about the term "Board Certified", thinking that it is the same designation for all certified massage therapists who are certified through the Board of Nursing in Virginia.
The NCBTMB in 2014, changed their requirements for certification and term length and introduced "Board Certification" for those with higher education. Meaning now, a certificant needs an additional 250 hours of education to be "Board Certified". For those who have achieved this designation, it is an accomplishment.
Whether you’re visiting a massage therapist or bodyworker for relaxation, rehabilitation or rejuvenation, you deserve to be treated by a practitioner who is skilled , knowledgeable, and committed to excellence in their chosen profession. That’s what the NCBTMB credential stands for a commitment to excellence.
Board Certified Therapists Meet Rigorous Qualifications
When you choose a Board Certified practitioner, you can be confident you’ve selected a dedicated professional.
To become Board Certified, a practitioner must demonstrate mastery of core skills and knowledge related to their profession, pass an NCBTMB exam, uphold the organization’s Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, and take part in continued education to ensure they remain at the top of their profession.
Today, there are thousands of Board Certified practitioners nationwide and you can find them throughout the country in physicians’ offices, private practices, spas, rehab facilities, health clubs and hospitals.
