Massage Practitioner Exam

The SF Department of Public Health will offer written examinations for massage practitioner applicants every Thursday, beginning July 15, 2004. For more information call DPH.

The written examination will include multiple choice questions and a section asking testers to match anatomical terms with a picture of the body.

The test will be available in English, Chinese, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese. If you would like DPH to consider other languages, please submit a request at DPH.

Applicants must acheive a minimum score of 70% on the exam. If the applicant fails the exam, it can be retaken after two weeks.

Current holders of permits from the Police Department will not be required to retake the exam.
