After meeting the requirements for graduation from Body in Mind Massage Institute, the School issues a Certificate of Completion. Throughout the final semester of the program, you will be prepped for the MLBEx, State of New Jersey massage therapy licensing exam, which starts the process of becoming licensed by the State of NJ. Our program exceeds the State of New Jersey’s 500-hour massage therapy licensing requirement. We offer coaching so you may confidently take and pass the MBLEx. We’ll also assist with navigating through the State’s licensing process, career placement and continuing education courses for maintaining licensure.


Earnings potential for a Licensed Massage Therapist is $30 – $50 (or more) per hour massage (including tips.) Full-time LMTs work 25-30 massage-hours per week, and part-time therapists even less. All shifts are IN DEMAND. You could be earning $750-$1,000, or more, each week, once you are licensed. Many massage therapy employers offer their full-time therapists added benefits such as paid time off, health benefits, and signing bonuses. Our Graduates usually recoup their tuition investment in about three months of working full time as a massage therapist!

Read this successful student’s story…

I am more confident & believe wholeheartedly in my abilities as a healer

“I feel like a better version of myself as a result of my training. I am more confident and believe wholeheartedly in my own abilities as a healer because of BIMMI. Walking into class on the first day, I remember feeling unsure of my path. After completion of this program, I know in my soul I have truly found my life’s calling. This program has exceeded all expectations that I had. I never thought I could learn so much in such a short period of time. The skills gained are invaluable and it has set us all up on the path for success in this industry. I learned so much about myself and my capabilities that will allow one to further expand as a therapist for years to come.

Mary – the drive and heart you have is so admirable and the reason you deliver the best therapists around! I’ve never had a teacher in my life who advocates and cares so deeply for her students. You are paving the way in this industry and I am forever grateful. Despite Covid-19, we were able to persevere and get through it together and come out stronger because of it. That’s all thanks to the amazing culture that’s been created at BIMMI. Thank you for being the best school, teacher, friend, mentor, and leader EVER.”
