MASSAGE PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
250 Hour Program
This certification course includes instruction in basic Swedish style massage, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Polarity, Sports Massage, Range of Motion, Self-Care and Movement Awareness, Business & Professional Ethics, as well as Anatomy and Physiology for a combined total of 220 classroom hours. An additional 30 hours of internship sessions, actual hands-on experience, is required of all students prior to certification. Instruction is in residence with class sizes limited to 20 students to maximize educational opportunities.
Massage internship sessions provide students with practical experience and documented evaluations that enable the student and their instructor to observe their progress, as well as note areas where additional instruction is necessary. The variety of training includes work with other students, with graduates, and with persons with special needs. The student learns how to properly document each massage session using a client intake form. Students emerge with a solid foundation of training.
The purpose of the core program is to provide students with viable techniques to use in community health care by encouraging self-confidence and an integrated understanding of life and health. The directors of the institute hold that education at its best should allow students to draw from within themselves in order to manifest their own potential. This is accomplished by teaching both the technology of bodywork and an introduction to knowledge of the life force.
Course approval was originally granted by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education. The Bureau's approval meant the Institute and its operation complied with the minimum standards established under law for occupational instruction by private postsecondary educational institutions. MIT has approval to grant a Certificate of Completion at courses end.
The massage profession has been increasingly receiving national recognition for its healing value. Massage Therapists provide a uniquely healing service for the community.
