For state licensing, the State of Hawaii requires a total of 570 hours of instruction, split across two levels:

Level 1

The therapeutic massage technique focuses on identifying and manipulating individual muscles using a variety of techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, lomi lomi, and accupressure.

150 total hours – 100 hours theory and demonstration, and 50 hours of class instruction on anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology.

$2,300 plus tax.

Upon completion of Level 1, students may submit an application for apprenticeship to the State of Hawaii. After receiving state approval, students may start Level 2.

Level 2

The apprenticeship program is where a student develops into a professional therapist. Advanced training techniques fine-tune skills, add new approaches to specific conditions, and offer different modalities of massage. This level is driven by clinic massages. Many students build up a regular clientele during their apprenticeships, and carry these clients with them after licensing. This is a great way to kick start their practice!

420 total hours – 40 hours advanced techniques, 70 hours clinical operation (sanitation, record keeping, office procedures, etc.), and 310 hours hands-on supervised clinical massage.

Clinical massage time is determined by each student’s personal availability. Level 2 generally takes 6 – 12 months to complete, but must be completed within 12 months.

$1,200 plus tax for a 6 consecutive month apprenticeship. If the student is unable to complete the requirements within 6 months, additional months of apprenticeship are available for $225 per month, plus tax.

Upon completion of Level 2, students may submit a licensing application to the state. After passing the state board exam, students will be issued a State of Hawaii Massage Therapist License!
