Lansing local massage therapist, Bilky Joda-Miller, wanted to give back to her community using the healing art of massage therapy. She envisioned creating a sanctuary facility where holistic care could be provided on a donation basis to those who need it. Through community support and the help of her board members, Mid-Michigan Massage Therapy Institute was born.
The mission of MMMTI is to provide awareness to the public about massage, teach continuing education to local professionals, and give information about the different ways massage can benefit the community.
Our goals include providing massage therapy research services at a reduced rate, or free to those who need it. We also plan to retain the services of massage therapists as volunteers for various fundraising events. We aim to work with vendors to offer massage therapy supplies at a discounted rate, and internships will a be available to graduating student therapists.
Mid-Michigan Massage Therapy Institute is a new Lansing local 501(c)(3) non-profit. MMMTI depends on donations coming in so our therapists can extend that love and wellness through bodywork, and back out into the community. Funds from this campaign will help us easily reach our goals and encourage an overall health and wellness mindset for our greater Lansing area, and beyond.
Professional massage therapy treatments have been proven to help alleviate stress, lower blood pressure and encourage circulation throughout the body.
Massage therapy can also provide relief from the following conditions and traumas:
-Anxiety and stress
-Domestic /Sexual Violence
-Insomnia related to stress
-Soft tissue strains/ injuries
These resources are not meant to replace conventional medicine but to enhance an overall holistic approach to the needs of all people. MMMTI is dedicated to making evidence-based and holistic resources and care available to ALL, regardless of race, ethnicity, belief system, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status. MMMTI is a sanctuary and will make decisions guided by the wisdom, strength and serenity attributed to massage for centuries.
With your donation to MMMTI, our community will improve in energy and heart. When we feel better, we respond better in our every day interactions. When we are free from pain in our bodies, no matter how minor the relief, we are that much more able to feel the goodness and warmth of being alive. Through massage therapy, MMMTI hopes to spread healing and kindness to anyone who needs it.
Thank you for your time and donations!
