Whether you are looking for a new career, interested in continuing your education to expand your knowledge as a massage therapist, or drawn to take an introductory class on massage and bodywork for yourself, family and friends - come join our circle. During more than four decades of service in Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, and Maryland, we have developed a strong legacy of training excellent massage therapists who practice their art and skill with expertise, integrity and heart.
PMTI's curriculum and teaching methods blend scientific study of anatomy with the artful practice of massage therapy techniques that develop the sensitivite use of touch. Through our program students learn to be aware of the entire body and to engage each client in the process of holistic healing. Students learn to interact with other health care professionals, while at the same time maintaining their focus on working with their clients as integrated and multi-faceted individuals.
Furthermore, our system of teaching bodywork supports our students’ unique inner health and growth processes by recognizing and encouraging the unity of the body, mind and spirit. We believe that massage and bodywork are vital to body awareness and healing, and our programs are designed to reflect the unity of the art and science in massage therapy. While classes at PMTI are serious and structured, we also encourage personal development in our students…and, we believe in the spirit that learning is fun.
