Why Choose MTTI?
“The training I received at MTTI has been invaluable. My “toolbox” is full of so many tools that I can’t go wrong. It has been so encouraging at my new job. There are other therapists who have been there for years and I am able to explain things to them that they hadn’t been trained on. My confidence is sky high. I am loving what I do every day I get to do it. You guys rock. Thank you everybody at MTTI. You helped me get to my dream, the career I was made to do.”Lauren Machuga

Medical Massage Program
Medical massage is the usage of massage to treat a medical condition. MTTI views the student as a true health care professional, and our program is rigorous and medically-based. A medical massage program prepares students to work not only in spas and resorts, and with people with all kinds of physical issues, but also prepares students to treat injuries or medical conditions. This allows graduates to work in the health care industry, such as in hospitals, with chiropractors or physical therapists, with athletes or trainers, and more. MTTI’s massage program qualifies students to work in most states and over 40 countries.
Because of the wide variety of exposure to different styles of massage, and to real-world job experiences, students graduate from MTTI’s Medical Massage Program confident and prepared to step into a career as a professional massage therapist. MTTI’s Clinical Residency Internship Class takes place in MTTI’s Professional Massage Clinic, where MTTI student therapists massage clients along with Licensed Massage Therapists. Our students graduate confident in their experience and abilities to meet the individual needs their clients may have and trained for a wide variety of job opportunities.
Our Instructors are experienced, passionate, and caring people with thriving practices and many years of experience in the massage and the natural health field. At MTTI, students are able to grow and learn from a diverse group of teachers who prepare them to confidently work in many different professional environments. Our Instructors support and encourage students to discover their own unique interests and specialties.
