About Us

Massage Therapy Institute open its clinic in August of 1993, and the school in April of 1994. Our goal is to provide quality alternatives to medical treatment through massage therapy. We believe that mind, body and environment are interconnected and contribute the body's experience of well-being. MTI's approach to massage combines the healing properties of touch with applied therapies to unlock the body's ability to relax and recover.
We offer services from licensed massage therapist as well as students. 
We are also available for on site massage for local businesses, small and large.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Never a delay- my appointments always begin on time if not as soon as I arrive. Atmosphere is excellent mix of professional and relaxing.

    Awesome, my first time at Massage Therapy and my back and neck was so much better when I left and even the morning after. I will definitely be going back. Breanna Glass was very professional and helped my pain level to go down a lot.

  • She was very professional.

    outside I was thinking about the older building but once inside, I noticed how very clean and neat it was.

  • Relaxing and pain relief. And new knowledge to use for at home relief. Thanks so much!

    YES! I already have!! Heather was great!

  • Great massage!

    I love the massage I get from Anita and the prices certainly can’t be beat. My only issue is the dirty chairs in the waiting room. Replace those and everything would be 100% perfect.

  • Nice, clean, mostly relaxing environment. However, I will say that the room is a bit brighter (even with blinds) than would be optimal.

Heather did a great job of putting me at ease and explaining massage therapy to me. Since it was my first experience, that was important.

Lala is amazing! She’s very knowledgeable on her field. She gave me tips about stretching and knew exactly which muscles needed the most care. I felt 10xs better after my session with her. Now I come back almost every week. No more knots or aches!!!
