The Massage Training Institute (MTI) was founded in 1988 by a group of dedicated massage tutors. It was created due to a lack of accrediting bodies, at that time, offering a holistic approach to massage. MTI rapidly became a highly esteemed organisation built on a foundation of core values including integrity, sensitivity and creativity.
MTI prides itself on establishing an educational and practice philosophy based on teaching students a diverse range of skills and techniques that can readily be applied and adapted to individual needs, as opposed to teaching a set routine.
MTI currently has 14 accredited schools operating throughout the UK, teaching the Level 4 Diploma Course.
To maintain the MTI’s high standards in professional practice, every student on the Diploma Course is assessed individually on practical & theoretical skills, and knowledge. Registered MTI practitioners are expected to maintain their professional training by attending a programme of continuing Professional Development (CPD). To assist practitioners with CPD training, the MTI has established regional support groups. Each year the MTI holds an Annual Conference, an event filled with learning, application of knowledge, networking, and personal/professional development opportunities.
MTI professional practice diplomas are considered by the complementary therapy world as the gold standard in massage training.
