Massage Therapist Programs
MTI offers Massage Therapist Programs, with certificates given at 250 and 500 hours. Your training usually begins with the 100 hour Massage Therapy Fundamentals class. This comprehensive training provides you with the skills and technique to begin working immediately as a massage therapist. We offer this class in the day (9am – 6pm), on the weekends and as a 12 day intensive (9am – 6pm). Once you have completed your Massage Therapy Fundamentals, you can work as a Massage Therapist as long as you are in compliance with any local massage ordinance, allowing you to get a business license.
