MBLEx Test Prep: Exam Coach for Schools

Want your students to pass the MBLEx exam? So do we! That’s why we created ABMP Exam Coach, the best MBLEx test prep in the profession!

“Tuesday, I passed my MBLEx exam with flying colors! I felt so confident going into the test, so sure that I would pass—I attribute that to the many hours of active studying that I did with Exam Coach. It was so easy to study because I always have an electronic device on me—it was the most convenient and effective way to study.”

New Massage Board Created in Alabama

On May 15, 2024, Governor Kay Ivey signed into law Senate Bill 137, terminating the Alabama Board of Massage Therapy and its functions to create the new Alabama Massage Therapy Licensing Board. Learn key takeaways from the bill and how its passage may affect you.

Tennessee Regulatory Update

Tennessee massage therapy education requirements increased from 500 hours to 650. ABMP would like to share an update to explain how that change came about and give some overdue credit to those who made it happen.

Alabama Board in Jeopardy of Dissolution

Without your support, the Alabama massage therapy profession is in danger of losing its regulatory board, which could result in inconsistent regulation or none at all. Call Governor Kay Ivey to encourage the passage of Senate Bill 137 to protect massage regulation.
