MTTI’s 6-month Program totals 750 hours of instruction, and is split into 3 classes.

Class 2 - Hands-On
Class 3 - Clinical Residency Internship
Students attend all 3 classes each week. Class 1 & 2 are Monday-Friday, from 8:00am -1:15pm. Class 3 offers flexible hours, fitting this class around job and family commitments.
Class 1: Anatomy & Physiology. This class consists of in-depth anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, body systems, pathology, pharmacology, applied psychology, ethics, business planning & marketing for workforce readiness, and more. Students learn how and why massage affects the mind and body.
Class 2: Hands-On. Students learn how, where, and when to touch the body in a safe and therapeutic way to relieve pain and promote healing. The Swedish Massage is the foundational modality and the first of 19 modalities students learn. Students develop an understanding of what their hands feel such as where muscle attaches to bone, the placement of arteries, nerves and organs, how pain can travel, the changes taking place in the body because of touch, and why. Students also learn self-care.
Class 3: Clinical Residency Internship. Students receive real job experience in MTTI’s Professional Massage Clinic, interacting with Licensed Massage Therapists. Everything comes together as students apply what they learn by practicing their skills on clients from the public. Students complete 150 massages under the supervision and support of instructors. Students practice assessment and treatment skills, learning to modify each massage based on the client’s history and needs. Students practice medical notation & charting to document the therapy session.
