Michigan massage licenses must be renewed every 3 years, by October 31. Your license expiration date is stated on your license. Also, you should receive a postcard from the state approximately 3 months before your expiration date reminding you to renew and providing the website which you must go to in order to renew online, which is http://www.michigan.gov/elicense (click on “Massage Therapy”). The renewal fee is $225.
At the present time, you do not have to have completed any CE to renew your license, since the rules addressing CE have not been issued yet. However, we anticipate that those rules will be issued soon. The draft rules propose requiring 18 hours of CE every 3 years and setting forth in detail what type of CE will be acceptable. The draft rules also state that once the CE rules are issued, those rules will only apply to license renewals that are filed for the renewal cycle beginning 1 year or more after the effective date of the rules.
