(formerly General Council for Massage Therapy)

MTI is a member of the GCMT. GCMT is the lead body in the UK for massage and soft tissue therapies, and is made up of several member Professional Associations.

It provides a forum for member organisations to discuss and resolve industry issues, sets the standards in massage training, and represents the views of the bodywork professions.

GCMT was established in 1999 and had a large influence on the National Occupational Standards for Massage in the UK and established a National Core Curriculum for massage.

MTI was instrumental in the setting of these standards and through membership of GCMT we continue to influence national developments in the industry.

MTI abides by the GCMT Code of Practice and Ethics.

Further details can be found on the GCMT website.
