Becoming a massage therapist in Bridgeport is no easy task. Graduation from an accredited school of massage includes over 750 hours of in-class training as well as at least 60 hours of clinical experience, as well as successful completion of the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Examination. Only then can you apply to become a licensed massage therapist.
It Could Be Taken Away
Once you receive your license though, you still have to be sure you are able to maintain it in order to practice. The Department of Public Health is responsible for issuing and monitoring licenses. If they believe you have violated the terms of your license, you could be in jeopardy of losing your license and your ability to work as a massage therapist. Some reasons a license may be revoked are:
Public complaint. If a client feels uncomfortable or like they have been mistreated they may report it to the department.
Failure to comply with health code. Standards are in place for a massage therapy establishment and its amenities. It is important to keep up to code in order to maintain your license.
Failure to keep proper records. Records are required for most if not all businesses. These records need to be accurate and up to date.
