2nd and 4th Wednesday.   See our Calendar here.

PMTI receives a large number of calls from local residents and organizations requesting student massage services for events, parties, and conferences, either for no cost or for a reduced rate. We are typically unable to accommodate such requests, as all student practice requirements are pre-planned and are carefully designed to support specific objectives throughout the course of study. Should you wish to list an event as a volunteer opportunity for a PMTI graduate, however, you may send information about the event to info@pmti.org, and we will post your notice for our graduates to view. Please note that PMTI plays no part in coordinating services for such events. If a graduate is interested in working with you, they will contact you directly. Due to the high volume of requests received, we cannot guarantee that any single event will garner a response. It is suggested that you submit your notice at least 4 weeks in advance.

Interested in the Professional Training Program?

Thank you for your interest in attending PMTI....

As a leader in massage therapy education, PMTI has been delivering an exceptional professional training program for over 38 years.  Our fall semester began on September 22nd with an exceptional group of 34 new students, and we look forward to continuing to build a vibrant community in our new Silver Spring location. 

PMTI is currently completing an accreditation process with the State of Maryland that will allow us to begin recruiting for our Spring semester, which is scheduled to begin in March 2015.  If you are interested in our training program, we encourage you to peruse our online catalog and become familiar with the details and scheduling aspects of PMTI’s course content.

Once approved by the state to do so, we will immediately begin offering open house information sessions to discuss the program in detail and to begin recruiting for the Spring semester.  If you are interested in the training program, we encourage you to send an e-mail with your current phone number and pertinent contact information.  Email should be addressed to reception@pmti.org.  We will be delighted to contact you just as soon as recruitment is permitted in our new location.

In the interim, you are cordially invited and encouraged to join us for our ongoing free Friday community lecture series and community workshop offerings.  Our community workshop calendar on this website.  We’d be delighted to have the opportunity to meet you.

With sincere appreciation for your interest,

The Staff and Faculty of PMTI
