At Belmont College, a one-year Massage Therapy certificate program is offered. This program prepares students to take the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx) in the State of Ohio. A passing MBLEx score allows individuals to apply for a license to practice massage therapy in the State of Ohio via the State Medical Board of Ohio (SMBO). Licensure from the SMBO is required for massage therapy employment in Ohio.
Students must complete a clinical experience within the on-site massage therapy lab, performing 75 massages before graduation.
The Massage Therapy program at Belmont College is the only approved massage therapy program in this area for the State of Ohio.
