5 Things Every Massage Therapist Needs:

(1) Quality Table

Every massage therapists need a sturdy, height-adjustable massage table that can hold the weight of the client and themself. We use and recommend Oakworks.

(2) Quality Lotions

All organic lotions with no additives are a must! This will provide moisture to the skin without causing irritation. We use and recommend Biotone and 12 Corners which also add the benefit of aromatherapy.

(3) Tools

Tools provide the therapist with assistance to prevent overuse injuries from occuring. These also allow you to provide self care. We recommend Pressure Positive Brand.

(4) Music

Music is a personal preference. It creates the tone and atmosphere for the body work. You can come into our location to shop or look online.

(5) Continued Education

There are always new studies and new information coming out of the massage therapy research world. It is very important to stay up to date with your education. Visit our website for more information on classes.

About Us

Cumberland Institute opened in 1987, making it the oldest school teaching holistic therapeutic massage in the state of Tennessee. With a reputation for excellent training in a broad spectrum of bodywork modalities, Cumberland graduates are avidly recruited by the top spas, medical and chiropractic clinics, and rehabilitation centers in the region, although most of our graduates choose to eventually establish a private practice.

Cumberland Institute has an excellent faculty, and its rigorous academic and technical massage therapy training has given our graduates a very high pass rate on the test administered by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and the exam of the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards, which both serve as the Tennessee state licensure exams. But more important is Cumberland’s 99% success rate, an indicator of how many graduates go on to establish a career in massage within one year of graduation.

Although academic excellence and diversified technical training are central to the educational mission, most students will probably tell you it is the caring emphasis on developing each individual student which really makes the Cumberland experience special. Starting with their first courses, and continuing throughout the training, students are encouraged to learn about themselves as they learn about massage therapy. They are guided to develop healthy balance in their work, financial, and personal lives. Students’ unique gifts and interests are nurtured, with the aim of helping them develop a specialized career focus, and their own unique niche in the marketplace. They are urged to stretch and grow beyond the limits of their fears, to build a solid foundation of ethical, professional behavior and values, and to feel the loving support of a community of mentors and peers, which will follow them into professional practice.

Massage therapy is rapidly growing in acceptance within the medical community as an effective healthcare option in wellness care, stress management, pain treatment, and the rehabilitation from a wide range of illnesses and injuries. The relaxation massage industry continues to grow in answer to the need for improved quality of life in a stressful, modern world. Cumberland Institute provides its students the knowledge, skill, and confidence to pursue whatever bodywork career they desire. It also helps them understand the fundamentals of business they will need to establish a practice which supports them financially, without burning them out physically or emotionally.

In its holistic emphasis, Cumberland training honors the sacred trust and intuition required by a vocation of “laying-on of hands”, which recognizes the multi-dimensional nature of the therapist-client interaction in bodywork. Cumberland prepares its students to bring the best of themselves to their work, with healthy and appropriate boundaries and professional behavior which remain within the scope of massage practice, but do not exclude the spiritual or the sacred from the experience. The curriculum builds a solid foundation of scientific knowledge of the body, how it works, and how Western massage therapy can be used to promote vibrant health. At the same time, it offers complementary therapeutic tools from Acupressure, Craniosacral Therapy or Neuromuscular Therapy, and a variety of other modalities, to help students address the chronic pain, tension, and dysfunction from which their clients seek relief. For us, the holistic approach offers the best of both worlds: to the therapist, it offers ease and efficacy in treatment, while simultaneously offering the client increased comfort and opportunity for healing.
