Welcome to Chattanooga Massage Institute


At Chattanooga Massage Institute, we are dedicated to promoting excellence in the study and practice of massage therapy. We foster growth in a student focused learning environment, while instilling professionalism, compassion, confidence and respect in our graduates.

CMI intro

Why come to CMI?

Our philosophy is to provide excellent training in an inviting and more personal learning environment. We feel that massage is an extension of the therapist, as well as a form of communication and healing with the client. Our focus is to develop excellent communication, technical and clinical skills for our students to offer clients a professional massage experience. We look to enrich our students with well-rounded knowledge of the profession and seek to provide a rewarding experience for our new graduates as they prepare for a career in massage therapy.

We strive to bring about an awareness of the powerful impact of touch and encourage our students to embrace their individuality in the development of their professional practice of massage. By guiding our students to this awareness, we promote the growth and development of our students' own personal "art of touch."

The total cost of the Massage Therapy Program offered by Chattanooga Massage Institute is $6600.00
