You have made the commitment to a career in massage therapy, and as the end of school nears a new hurdle is on the horizon: studying for and passing your state licensing exam.
Until you clear that hurdle, your career in massage is just a dream. But you are not alone. For more than 32 years, MASSAGE Magazine’s mission has been to provide massage students the tools, information and resources to help them succeed in the classroom and their careers. With that in mind, we have worked with the leading educational minds in massage therapy to create Massage Study Buddy, a one-of-a-kind tool to help students pass their licensing exams.
Licensing Exam: Simple & Fun
Massage Study Buddy makes exam preparation simple and fun. The platform is free, fun and functional, and covers a broad spectrum of common questions and answers you’ll find on your test. Students can study their way, in their time, on any device. The program offers both flash cards and practice tests that can be retaken multiple times until you feel you’re ready for the exam. Massage Study Buddy also offers tips on studying for and taking your exam. These tips have been created by seasoned massage professionals who understand what it takes to be properly prepared for a licensing test. Topics covered include understanding which studying methods work best for you to what to expect after you’re licensed.
8 Essential Areas
While licensing exams vary from state to state, most cover eight essential areas:
- Anatomy and physiology
- Soft tissue manipulation
- Client treatment and planning
- Modalities and history
- Ethics and legal regulations
- Guidelines for professional practice
With an easy-to-follow program, Massage Study Buddy guides you through each of these areas, giving you a thorough review and understanding of what you can expect on the test.
