About Texas Massage Institute

Texas Massage Institute (TMI), formerly known as Wellness Skills, Inc. and as Dallas Professional Massage Studies, was originally founded and registered in Texas in 1985 as a school for professional massage training. Our curriculum is endorsed by the ABMP (Associated Bodyworks and Massage Professionals), and the school is approved to accept candidates from the Texas Commission for the Blind, the Texas Rehabilitation Commission and the Private Industry Council.

TMI has three conveniently located DFW Metroplex campuses: Dallas, Fort Worth and Plano. TMI is now offering courses at the new El Paso campus as well. Each campus provides a clean and well-equipped facility staffed by highly experienced instructors, and is fully able to meet your training needs. The campuses also provide massage clinics in which the public may receive low-cost, basic therapeutic massage from graduate interns. Our headquarters and main offices are located at the Dallas campus.

TMI provides high quality, professional therapeutic massage training throughout its entire curriculum. The 300-hour Basic Program prepares you for Texas certification as a registered massage therapist. 100-hour Advanced Programs provide in-depth training in core areas of practice as well as in specialized techniques. 6-Hour CE Courses and Advanced CE Workshops of varying duration enhance your knowledge and skills while satisfying Texas' annual continuing education requirements. Training involves both classroom and clinical, hands-on experience. A wide variety of flexible class schedules is available.

TMI provides an interest-free, pay-as-you-go payment plan, and several work-study positions. The school has convenient on-campus shops that provide you with the books and supplies you need in your studies—many at discounted prices, plus the full line of Oakworks® massage tables and accessories.
