Licensed massage therapist and founder Janine Cormier Fleming designed Holistic Massage Training Institute's 600-hour program in an effort to educate aspiring massage therapists.

Supplementing the standard program, community seminars show pupils how to administer couples' massages along with specialized techniques such as acupressure and reflexology.
