Massage Therapy Examinations
TDLR’s mission is to honor the trust of all Texans, safeguard the public, and provide a fair and efficient licensing and regulatory environment at the lowest possible cost. TDLR will continue to administer the Massage Therapist Jurisprudence Examination through third-party vendor eStrategy Solutions. Please note, the jurisprudence exam is no longer a requirement for Massage Therapy Continuing Education Providers or for Massage Therapy Establishments.
The Texas Massage Therapist Jurisprudence Examination content is based on the state rules and laws relating to the practice of massage therapy. All applicants for initial licensure must submit proof of completing the jurisprudence examination at the time they submit their Texas Massage Therapist License Application. Applicable fees are paid directly to the third-party vendor for the jurisprudence examination.
Please note, upon paying the jurisprudence exam registration fee, your exam must be completed within 30 days. After 30 days, your fee and registration will expire and your exam will be invalidated. To take the jurisprudence exam again, you will need to re-register and pay a new fee.
Massage Therapist National Licensing Exam
To obtain a Texas Massage Therapist license, TDLR requires a passing score on the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEX) administered by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB). Applicants for a Texas Massage Therapist license must submit their FSMTB exam results with their license application.
