Massage Establishment


Click on the appropriate tab below to see the Renewal Requirements, Process, Fees and Continuing Education (CE) for a Massage Establishment.

Current licenses expire at midnight, Eastern Time, on August 31, 2017.

Failure to renew an active license by the expiration date will result in the license being placed in delinquent status. Failure by a delinquent licensee to renew within six months of the license becoming delinquent renders the license Null & Void without any further action by the board or the Department.

To ensure you receive your renewal notification from the Department, your current mailing address must be on file.

The Department will renew your license upon receipt of a completed renewal application and fees.
