MTI – The massage training institute

The Massage Training Institute was created by a group of dedicated and inspirational massage tutors in 1988, as no accrediting bodies at the time offered a holistic approach.

By following its key values of integrity, sensitivity and creativity, MTI quickly became a highly esteemed organisation.The model of training and practice created by MTI now forms part of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) standards for holistic massage in the UK.

The essential and critical difference has always been to teach students a wide variety of techniques that could be adapted to an individual client rather than applying a set routine to treat all.

MTI began accrediting training schools that were able to demonstrate a similar ethos and understanding. To maintain those high standards, on diploma courses an MTI examiner assesses every student’s practical and theoretical skills individually. Our diploma course is also externally verified every year.

MTI registered practitioners maintain their skills through a programme of continuing professional development and participation in regional support groups.
