Learn to be a Massage Therapist

We have locations in Red Deer and Cold Lake – become a RMT today!

Alberta’s Top Massage School: Northern Institute of Massage Therapy Inc

Northern Institute of Massage Therapy offers the most current training and experienced staff in the industry, giving you the skills and confidence needed to become a registered massage therapist. Our massage school and locations in Alberta are completely focused on teaching massage therapy, therefore you will receive training and support from an environment completely centered on this chosen career path. Our school does not utilize classroom instruction for the majority of the program content. This allows students to be able to continue working or to raise their families while achieving a higher level of education.


Our Programs

Within both of our Basic Relaxation Massage and Advanced Therapeutic Massage therapy programs, we have seen great success amongst our students. Our massage school currently has a graduation rate of 91%, and 100% of our graduates have secured employment in the massage industry after finishing the programs!

We are now accepting applications for our January programs in Red Deer and February programs in Cold Lake, and soon we will have Ayurvedic programs and workshops – stay tuned for more details.

Attending NORTHERN INSTITUTE OF MASSAGE THERAPY was one of the best career decisions I have made. The faculty encouraged me to start my own practice and because of the unique Lensen training I received at NORTHERN INSTITUTE OF MASSAGE THERAPY, I have been able to successfully build and retain a clientele of over 250 clients. Within one month of graduating, I became the most sought after RMT in my community. I am currently booking up to 5 weeks in advance and am loving being self employed.

-Michelle S., Integrity Massage Therapy

Attending NORTHERN INSTITUTE OF MASSAGE THERAPY has been the best decision I've made. Lensen™ is a great form of therapy that is unique to NORTHERN INSTITUTE OF MASSAGE THERAPY and has made my practice stand out from the rest. Len and Lori are amazing teachers and gave me the knowledge and confidence to do what I love.

-Alex A., Goodsense Healthcare

Being a Massage Therapist has been the most rewarding job, working your own hours and helping people feel better makes you feel good at the end of the day! Northern Institute of Massage is a wonderful place to learn, a relaxed environment and they work around your schedule! I am very happy with the education I have received from the Northern Institute!
