Massage Therapist Renewal

License Renewal


Licenses issued effective 10/17/19 and thereafter will expire two years after the original date of issuance:

  • for existing license holders, the renewal deadline will continue to be on the same date as it is currently

  • for new license holders this means renewal will occur on the two-year anniversary of initial issuance and every two years thereafter

  • pro-rated CME applies only to initial licenses issued prior to 10/17/2019 with less than 18 months of licensure.

Ohio licenses may be renewed online at elicense.ohio.gov. You may view your renewal status online here.
