Why We Teach

Changing Lives for the Better

There are so many reasons why we teach! At Midwest Massage Therapy Training Center, we are passionate about changing lives through barefoot massage or "FasciAshi." We want to inspire growth, positivity, and better health in the lives of licensed massage therapists. We want to provide our LMTs' clients with relief and results they will not get from any other type of massage. And we want to create a renewed excitement and joy surrounding our profession that seems to be lacking.


A Better Practice, A More Centered Life

Many LMTs are afraid to try barefoot massage. We assure you – it is not hard, it is not scary. It is fun and rewarding and freeing. It inspires a deeper meaning to what we do, like a beautiful dance that can be done by anyone willing to try. We are here to teach you how to have everything you dream of and help you get there.

There is so much potential and opportunity to grow physically, emotionally, and spiritually when given the right encouragement and tools. By switching from hands-on deep tissue massage that wreaks havoc on your hands, wrists, and back to our version of FasciAshi, you can have a long, profitable career and a more centered life. And you get the added bonus of mentors who care and are here for you long after class is over.

More Than Just a Class

Our classes don't just involve technique and then we send you on your way and say, "Good luck." Our experience has taught us that knowing barefoot massage and living barefoot massage are two different things.

When you take classes at MMTTC (or our affiliate CBM), you learn the science and philosophy behind everything we teach, what's hype and what's true, what works in real life and what doesn't, and most importantly – how to fit barefoot massage and our other specialty massages into your existing practice. We help you with best marketing practices for your new skills and even help with employment and with business coaching. Most of our students find barefoot massage transformative on a personal level as well as in business.

Our Dream for You

We want to see more LMTs have long, happy, pain-free careers helping their clients heal and live better lives through barefoot massage. We know you don't feel like you have the time or the money to invest in yourself, but we know first hand, if you keep using your hands for deep tissue massage, you will have a shortened career and chronic pain that can stay with you for life.

We can't stress enough how important it is to take care of yourself so you can continue to take care of others. As an LMT, that's most likely why you got into this business in the first place. To help others. That is why we do what we do too. We perform FasciAshi, Pillossage™, and pregnancy massage to help our clients; we teach them to help our fellow LMTs.


Our mission is to provide you with the tools that cultivate confidence in business, technique, and personal development, and to propel your practice from good to exceptional. Our team at Midwest Massage Therapy Training Center can give you options and change your world – it’s time to invest in yourself and save the career you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
