The students of the National Massage Therapy Institute are known for their community interaction and recently went above and beyond their usual call of duty. On October 29, seventeen NMTI students and 2 instructors set up a booth for chair and table massages at the annual Marine Corps Marathon in Arlington, Virgina. Post-race stretching is a must for any marathoner, and after the event, runners received massages administered by the talented students of NMTI.

“NMTI students and staff were honored to be asked to participate in this year’s Marine Corps Marathon,” said Deborah Brent, Campus Director. “This is a testimony to the quality of work our students are performing that is being recognized in the community by various charitable organizations.”

Over 200 complimentary massages were performed on race participants. During the Marine Marathon week which leads up to the marathon, senior-level students also performed massages on Marines returning from Iraq on the National Massage Therapy Institute campus.
