Many people do not realize that it is no longer necessary to get a Baccalaureate degree (BA) in order to have a rewarding and successful career in healthcare. In fact, according to the Department of Labor's February 2005 Labor Statistics Report, 7 of the 10 fastest growing occupations in states requiring training below the BA level. Therapeutic massage therapy is one such discipline.

While attending the National Massage Therapy Institute, students have many practical opportunities to gain a better understanding of the massage therapy field. An active job placement program, following graduation, is another benefit of the school. Day, evening, and weekend classes are taught by an experienced and engaging staff. NMTI offers the equipment, experienced teachers and educational materials necessary for a student’s success - in a comfortable, professional and conveniently located setting.

A recent NMTI graduate had this to say about her experience:

“Since my first visit to the school, I have been impressed with its professionalism and the depth of their curriculum. The instructors and staff are impressive, caring and helpful. They emphasize that their goal is to help you achieve a complete understanding of the theories and hands on practices associated with massage therapy. My friend who works in the health care field is in awe of the content of the program. Did you know that NMTI is nationally accredited by COMTA?

In addition to learning theory in our classrooms, body mechanics are taught and practiced each day. This is extremely valuable because it is necessary to apply what I study so that I am constantly fine tuning my hands-on expertise. This is the key to having longevity and success as a practitioner. If you are seriously considering massage therapy as a possible career, you should visit NMTI. I am sure you will agree that it is a lively, interactive and supportive environment where people are highly skilled and helpful. The relationship that is cultivated with the school is one of genuine interest that focuses on helping the student succeed.”
