As a Massage Therapist, it is always best to have Continuing Education Credits or Units (CEUs) and Liability Insurance to protect your clients and yourself. It is also advisable to obtain a license from your neighboring state to maintain Rules and Regulations placed for consumer protection, thereby enhancing the awareness and necessity for a Minnesota State Licensing Board. Then when Minnesota does begin a State Board, if you have an Association with your Liability Insurance and have maintained your CEUs you can be grandafathered in very easily with a recorded history to back up your experience.
