New Mexico is often thought of as an alternative haven, a place where seekers come to find a different kind of life amongst the high desert and beautiful mountain vistas. It's no wonder, then, the state has over 3000 licensed massage therapists, who serve New Mexicans from the artsy town of Taos to the oil-rich fields of Hobbs. The state has several massage schools catering to students of many different persuasions, but all of them focus on strong preparation for a profession of healing.

Lymphatic massage, in which a massage therapist treats lymphedema and other issues of the lymphatic system, is one such specialization. Below, MTTI's Clinical Residency Instructor Tara Castle appears on a 2011 episode of local TV show "Staying Well With Sunnie Bell." Sunnie Bell, RN, Certified Diabetes Health Educator, and Tara discuss the lymphatic system.

Dec 21, 2015 9:00:00 AM by MTTI
The holidays are hard. Yes, they're often filled with joy, love and light, but just as often people struggle with stress and over-scheduling at this time. From Thanksgiving to New Year's, it's so important to carve out time for yourself, to recharge and recalibrate. One way to do this? Get a massage, of course!
Massage can be one of the best ways to practice self-care during the busy time of the holidays. It's calming, rejuvenating and can help your body recover from both physical and mental stress.  You probably know that getting a massage will help you feel more relaxed, but did you know there's actually a wealth of research that backs up the use of massage therapy for various ailments, too? Some of the newest evidence says massage can boost your immune system, as well as your mood - so it's a perfect way to deal with both the doldrums and the germs that can come around the holiday season.

Massage School Graduate Stories: "I Wanted More"

Nov 3, 2015 1:00:00 PM by MTTI

I have always wanted to own my own business - a business that helps people relax, enjoy and revisit who they are. When I was younger, I decided to go to cosmetology school. At that time I had two kids. It was great, but there was still something missing from my career. 

Years later it came to me. I was driving my car and listening to music and I heard a voice. It simply told me "massage school." I thought to myself, "ok!! Where and how much?" I searched online for Las Cruces massage schools and found MTTI. It felt like destiny.

Oct 22, 2015 9:00:00 AM by MTTI

For recently graduated massage therapists, the task of finding your first job can be intimidating. How is a new massage therapist, fresh out of massage school, supposed to compete with those who have more experience and knowledge? New massage therapists entering the job market often want to know:

  • How can I set myself apart from the competition?
  • What qualities are employers looking for?
  • How can I demonstrate during an interview that I am the best person for the job?

For many of the visitors to our student massage clinic, it is their first experience receiving a student massage. For some, it may even be their first time receiving massage of any kind. We love and value our clinic clients, and we want you to have a positive experience. Because it is a unique experience, it is especially important that our clients are well prepared with knowledge and information about what makes a student massage different than a regular massage, and what responsibilities you as the client have during your appointment. In this post, MTTI Owner and school President Timothy Gay explains what you need to know.

Breaking it Down: How to Decipher the Language of Anatomy and Physiology

Mar 31, 2014 8:27:00 PM by MTTI

By Robin Faux, MTTI Anatomy & Physiology Instructor

They say the best way to learn a foreign language is to completely submerse yourself in it. Going to massage school can certainly satisfy that experience, but when you’re trying to absorb information from lectures and textbooks, it can sometimes be overwhelming to wade through words that are 4 to 5 syllables or longer. Craniosacral… sacrotuberous… neuromuscular… adrenocorticotropic… huh!? On top of that, you’re expected to learn directional terms such as “superior…proximal…lateral…superficial,” and you’re probably thinking to yourself, “if I wanted to learn a foreign language at break-neck speed, I would have become a barista at the coffee shop down the street!”
