The Mississippi State Board of Massage Therapy is now accepting the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam (MBLEx) offered by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB: www.fsmtb.org) as a qualification for licensure. House Bill 426, signed into law by Governor Barbour, changes the state credential from registration to a license and stipulates that no member of the state board of massage therapy can be an owner or partner in a massage therapy school. HB 426 went into effect on July 1, 2008.
