PMTI takes to the AIR!  Click here to listen to our own Aja Hartman's podcast about the Power of Touch and the role massage can play in a loving, coupled relationship (podcast date = 10/29/12). 

This just in (October 4, 2012)….PMTI students first time pass rate on the National Certification Exam climbed to 100%. This matches our 100% on the MBLEx. That’s right, our students score 100% on both National Licensing Exams.  The National Averages are in the low 70s. 

Our friends at the ABMP (Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals) told us recently that our success rate numbers are extremely rare. It is virtually unprecedented that a school of our size produces such a quality product time and time again.   

Let’s hear it for our brilliant students who work so hard to make their dreams come true.  Let’s hear it for the wonderful faculty that year in and year out works tirelessly, giving their all and sharing what they love. Students, you made the right choice to be a part of our circle.  Graduates, you always make us proud!

PMTI Alum Ginger Ingalls to Publish Article in Industry Journal

Congratulations to Ginger Ingalls! Ginger was invited to publish an article in Cranial Wave, a journal of the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America. Ginger expains, "This piece integrates what I have been taught and a sense of pioneering and following my heart. It comes out of my daily practice of contemplating my S.O.A.P. notes that I write, and then writing in my diary about what feels new, interesting, or refreshing."

Ginger has graciously given us permission to reprint her article. You can read the full text of the article here.

PMTI Awards Scholarships for Massage and Cancer Work

Thanks to the generosity of Peg Buzy’s family, PMTI is able to offer scholarships for advance coursework in Massage Therapy and Cancer Training. Peg served PMTI and our students for many years in our Fieldwork program, and spearheaded the nursing home project that is the first field project for Level 1 students. The Peg Buzy scholarships are meant to help defray the costs of special training in working with clients living with cancer in order to encourage more work in this area. Recipients are expected to come back and share the information with PMTI students, in addition to contributing their skills to those living with cancer.
