Philosophy and Comments
MTIM seeks to nurture the student's intuitive and individualized approach into her/his unique style. No cookie-cutter massages. The student becomes the client, formulating a treatment plan addressing his/her own limitations and desired outcomes. Functional goals are set and each student embarks upon a year-long journey of self-discovery, assessment, and treatment. Rotating lab partners and an equal number of massages received to those given (two per week per person) create an environment of growth and change.
