Our Mission

The Muscular Therapy Institute is a community-based, holistic educational platform that delivers quality instruction through a multitude of courses, lectures, and workshops for the higher education and well-being of our beloved massage therapy professionals.

Our instructor community is a collaboration with professionals from athletic trainers, physical therapists, chiropractors, to massage therapists who honor scientific and critical thinking. Our instructors have the professional education, field experience, and ability to instruct. We promote all aspects of self-care, innovative applications, and intuitive technology and teach the understanding of the mechanisms of injury and therefore how to productively resolve musculoskeletal issues within the scope of practice within the massage therapy field.

MTI fosters a learning environment that engages, challenges, and inspires each and every participant, guiding their elevation of knowledge, experience, and technical skill. Together we successfully improve educational standards, expand qualifications, and increase our exposure and recognition as essential providers in the healthcare system.

We have been diligently working on the new material being presented by USMT - The Muscular Therapy Institute and look forward to rolling it out in the new year. However, we feel that we need to offer the basic course in the beginning of the new year to allow those therapists who have not taken it the opportunity to do so. All therapists are required to have successfully completed the basic introductory IASTM course before advancing to the next level.

  • Advanced IASTM Spine (Vertebral Column)
  • Advanced Calf & Foot
  • Advanced Shoulder
  • Advanced Hip
