Our Program

Our Therapeutic Massage Program is designed for those individuals who wish to make a meaningful change in their lives and the lives of those around them.

We attract responsible, committed individuals interested in personal transformation through the healing arts.  People are drawn to us for our small, intimate learning environment; our holistic massage education; and our highly focused hands-on personal care and attention.

Our well-rounded program gives our graduates the ability to tailor their therapeutic massage and bodywork careers and follow their own passion.  We encourage students to blend their knowledge of anatomy with their kinesthetic intuition, creating a nurturing, therapeutic, and sacred experience for themselves and their clients.

We are not a big, corporate massage school.  We emphasize relationship, mentorship, connection, community, and excellence in instruction.

ITMB is licensed by the Pennsylvania State Board of Private Licensed Schools.

Our 650-hour Therapeutic Massage diploma can be used to obtain a license in Pennsylvania and Delaware.

We ready our graduates for long-lived careers in massage therapy and prepare them to sit for the MBLEx Exam for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork State Licensure. ITMB graduates have a 100% success rate on the National Board Exam.

We have designed a comprehensive and balanced 650 hour educational program that explores the scientific foundations of massage therapy, practical techniques, the larger realm of the healing arts, and intentional self-care.
