“I enjoyed my experience at the Massage Therapy Training Institute.  It was educational in more ways than I expected.  I learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of doing.  As expected, the class was challenging and very informative but it, and the program overall, was not impossible to complete.  The staff and faculty there were always extremely helpful and friendly.  They ensured that my environment always felt safe and comfortable while I was there both attending the class and performing my Internship in the clinic.  Attending MTTI was one of the best decisions of my life.”
