“I attended the full-time program at MTTI and it was one of the happiest times of my life. My instructors were amazingly gifted and intelligent people. The program is designed well; I felt challenged by the material but reassured by the competence of my mentors. I graduated fully prepared to take (and pass!) the National Exam and enter the massage therapy profession. Every time I start a massage, I think to myself, ‘I love doing this!'” ~Cheryl Frank
