Irene's complimentary Alumni Association is an exclusive organization providing fun and informative gatherings to graduates. Our alumni services present enriching experiences following graduation such as massage shares, career development classes and reunion parties. Participating in Irene’s Alumni Association provides an abundance of benefits in addition to networking opportunities. Graduates enjoy continuing education classes at reduced rates and information on the latest trends in massage and regulations governing their career. They receive assistance with state licensing, professional guidance, and a thriving alumni community.
All massage therapists are required to obtain a license from the State of Michigan. It is a criminal violation of the law to practice massage therapy without a board-issued license.
For our students, the school pays for their Massage Board Licensing Exam and their initial State Licensing fee. Our students receive guidance in completing their Michigan licensing application, and we submit their forms to the State upon completion of the student's program.
The following information is based on input from Michigan’s Bureau of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), AMBP, AMTA and our Lobbyists.
