Lisa Helbig, LMT, is the Founder, Executive Director, and Owner of the Institute for Therapeutic Massage (ITM), which she founded in 1994. Her career as a massage therapist began in 1990, upon graduating from the Jacksonville School of Massage Therapy, Florida. While building her private practice, and working for Nordstrom Spa, Lisa's great success created the vision to combine her long standing background as a corporate trainer with her love of massage therapy to develop a school that provides students with the high level of education she felt necessary to the field. Lisa has also been instrumental in the development of other massage and aesthetician schools (both before and after opening ITM), massage based curriculums, hospital based massage programs, community / charity based outreach, CEU based videos, and a book on hot stone massage, which was published by Running Press, and continues to sell 10 years later.
What started out as a love for massage and a dream has taken ITM from 1 small room in a corporate building to 7 locations, 5 hospital affiliations, 5 core programs (including a dual certification program for Massage Therapy and Personal Training, and the first COMTA Accredited Oncology Massage Program), and over 30 continuing education classes. In the past 15 years she has spear headed her schools through the accreditation processes of both ACCSCT and COMTA. Lisa has also added several innovative programs and new locations all the while maintaining her Title IV Financial Aid status.
In 2007, Lisa was a volunteer with National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) for Job Task Analysis and attended their meetings in both Chicago and San Antonio. In 2009, she became a subject matter expert for the exam development committee, charged with ensuring that the national licensing exam for massage therapists fully, and fairly, test a students body of knowledge before entering the profession.
In 2008, Lisa was appointed Commissioner for the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA), which accredits both educational institutions and programs offering instruction in massage therapy and bodywork.

Student & Alumni Resources - School Resource Center - Careers That Offer 'Hands-On' Approach

Lisa Helbig, executive director of the Institute for Therapeutic Massage, said the facility offers five programs: Massage and Bodywork; Eastern Bodywork; Massage and Personal Training; Clinical Massage Therapy; and the Oncology Massage Certification. "We are one of very few schools in the country to have a dual certification in Massage and Personal Training, and our Oncology Massage Certification Program is the first in the U.S. to be accredited by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA)," she said.
The institute, which was founded in 1995, offers both full- and part-time programs and day, night and weekend classes. Students are required to pass both theory and practical classes, including completing at least 100 hours of hands-on experience in the student clinic.
Helbig said it may take between nine to 12 months to complete training, depending on the program. Upon successfully completing the program, graduates are employable. "They also are qualified to be certified by the state of New Jersey as a massage therapist," said Helbig. "They [also] qualify to sit for the National Certification Exam if they choose, but that is voluntary, not mandatory," said Helbig. The exam is administered by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB).
