Benefits and Physiological Effects
This content area of the massage licensing exam tests the student’s understanding of the benefits and physiological effects of massage and bodywork techniques. MBLEx candidates need a strong understanding of the effects of massage therapy and bodywork techniques in order to provide safe treatments that progress their clients towards their treatment goals. The FSMTB Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam tests entry-level competency, so candidates should focus on the physiological effects of massage that come from applying basic massage techniques. Be sure to check out our flashcards in other massage exam content areas on our main MBLEx flashcard page. Members get access to our Muscle Flashcards.
