What is needed to start your own Business in Massage Therapy?!

Question: What is needed to start your own Business in Massage Therapy?
I know you need to be a licensed massage therapist of course. But do you need degree or diploma in massage therapy to start your own business? Or do you just need the license?
Someone please help me out. I want to go to a massage therapy school but I don't know which one to go to. Since most offer only a certificate or a diploma, along with the license. I would like to be able to start my own little business someday.


Licensing requirements are different for each state, but that doesn't really answer your question. You only need to have a massage therapy license to open your business. To get that license, you must get your diploma from an accredited school of massage. The school doesn't issue a license; they give you the diploma, then you'll apply for a license from your state licensing board. Google "massage therapy license [your state]" to find specific requirements for training, examinations, fees, liability insurance, and other statutes pertaining to the practice of massage in your state.
