Abbreviated Program

By attending massage therapy school you will expand your scope of practice, enhance your skills and open your doors to a broader variety of clientele. 


The Boulder Massage Therapy Institute offers an abbreviated program for people enrolled in, or currently licensed and practicing in another health field. Students and licensees of acupuncture, nursing, physical therapy, etc., can transfer their science classes to BMTI and be exempt from attending and paying for those courses.

Available in the Full-time 5-month or Part-time 10-month options.


  • Most commonly, credit is given for the theory part of the science courses. This reduces the 625-hour course load by 165 hours. This reduction is reflected in a lower tuition payment.
  • Official transcripts and/or copy of active license must be provided for evaluation during the application process. Proof of current practice hours for licensees also required. Please contact us for more information. Early enrollment discounts do not apply toward the abbreviated tuition.
