Holistic Massage Training Institute
Licensed massage therapist and founder Janine C. Fleming designed Holistic Massage Training Institute's 810-hour program in an effort to educate aspiring massage therapists. After 11 or 17 months, the program qualifies students to sit for the MBLEx licensing exam, which can open the door to an occupation such as licensed massage therapist or registered massage practitioner. Supplementing the standard program, community seminars show pupils how to administer couples' massages along with specialized techniques such as acupressure and reflexology. Yoga classes unwind student tensions in unison, and continuing-education courses illustrate bodywork techniques from India, Thailand, Hawaii, and Narnia.
