The Arizona Board of Massage Therapy requires a massage therapist to be licensed. To obtain a license, a massage therapist must pass the MBLEx. There will be 100 massage questions on this exam ranging from legal and ethical issues to anatomy and massage application questions. Exams are administered by Pearson VUE testing centers through a computer testing system that delivers one multiple-choice massage question at a time.

As of January 1, 2008, 700 clock hours of massage education are required. Check the Arizona state application instruction form.

In order to review for the MBLEx we recommend using our database of over 3500 massage questions that cover all topics of the MBLEx. Grade and track your massage practice test scores online. Every answered massage question is accompanied by a rationale that explains the information in the questions and answers.
