Massage Therapy Training Institute Opens Wellness Center

By Editorial Staff

Earlier this summer, the Massage Therapy Training Institute (MTTI) in Kansas City, MO., announced the opening of the Well-Spring Center for Natural Health and Wellness, an on-campus holistic clinic specializing in integrative health services, including massage therapy; wellness workshops; movement classes; and body treatments.

Like the educational programs of MTTI, the Well-Spring Center models its programs on the art and science of natural health, and tailors its services to meet the needs of individual clients.

Massage Therapy Profession Strengthens in Numbers

Despite the country's continuing economic malaise, an Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP) survey revealed enrollment at massage therapy institutions remains strong. The 2002 survey found that of the 930 participating schools, 48 percent reported enrollment was up, while 37 percent stated enrollment remains steady, a strong indication that the massage therapy profession is continuing to grow.
