“To anyone looking to experience an enlightening process through the power of the healing arts, I recommend this school tenfold. I have grown tremendously. This program provided me all the tools and love I needed to push forward to become a better human and future therapist. Couldn’t be more grateful. ”

Christos Dimopoulos, July 2021 Graduate

“My success story would say – only fear the steps you don’t take. Trust the process. I feel amazing as a result of my training. It exceeded far beyond my expectations as to what I originally thought. This program helped me understand that I was made for the healing profession. It also allowed me to be poured into spiritually by the most amazing teachers. What I would say to someone who is considering enrolling in this training program is – JUST DO IT. If you thought about it, then it’s in you – you won’t regret it. ”

Latoya Baynard, July 2021 Graduate

“Going into Body in Mind’s massage therapy program, I had never taken an anatomy class and only had ever received one professional massage from an LMT out of her home. I knew little to nothing about muscles, how they work, and what the effects of massage was on them or how massage helped them heal. I did not fully understand massage as a therapeutic treatment – only as a “fluff and buff” sort of thing.. I now know much much more. I have a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of massage massage therapy that will carry me confidently into this field of work. Body in Mind has prepared me phenomenally to do this work. I feel grateful to have chosen this school as my place of study and feel excited to begin working.Everything has been really amazing. This program was the most personalized, thoughtful, student-centered education I have ever received. For that, I am grateful. I feel that I have a forever second home here at BIMMI. ”

Lillian Bill, February 2021 Graduate

“Before enrolling in the program, I was a lost 20-something with no direction and passions. But it wasn’t until I became a part of the BIMMI family that I felt like I had found the path to fulfill my purpose. This program has given me the knowledge and confidence to to pursue my dream in being a part of the medical, healing community. Not only has the training provided me with a vast amount of knowledge on the human body and how it works so that I can confidently heal others, but it has also connected me to my body and has taught me what it is to be alive and how to keep my temple healthy. ”

Giselle Contreras, February 2021 Graduate

“I feel extremely prepared to start my career and it’s reflected by the professionals I’ve encountered. I’m entering the world of massage with a leg up on people who went to other schools. I’m entering a local spa with a higher wage then their usual entry wage due to the skills I’ve learned at BIMMI being recognized and appreciated and I feel very confident about my abilities to succeed post-graduation. ”

Ross Mogerly, February 2021 Graduate

“I would tell someone that the program is a lot at first but it is totally worth it in the end. No matter what your goals are with massage, this program is a crash course that can prepare you for anything and open up many opportunities. ”

Giovanna Foglia, February 2021 Graduate

“I feel that my skills have evolved greatly over the last 10 months. I gained a tremendous amount of confidence in myself and my ability to be an awesome LMT. It is surreal how much of what I learned is present in my everyday activities. I look forward to going out into the job field and making a name for myself. Most of all, I am glad I even enrolled in the first place as my life was going through a big change at the time. I have really learned to not let fear control my decisions. ”

Daniel Fleming, June 2021 Graduate

“The heart and soul of BIMMI is an eyeopener. It will show you who you are and how you want to benefit the world.”

Jo Anna Fleming, June 2021 Graduate

Megan Lange, June 2021 Graduate

Allison Johnsen, June 2021 Graduate

You will learn so much more than you ever thought you would – or could.”

Caitlyn Wright, July 2020 Graduate

“Prior to enrolling in BIMMI, I was a bit lost in life and which direction I wanted to go in. I knew I wanted to help others. After coming to an open house meeting with Mary, feeling her amazing positive energy, I knew then that this was my calling. After enrolling and going through the process, I have become better in all aspects toward myself and especially in my work toward others. I will always be thankful to Mary and BIMMI for allowing me to answer my calling. I am eternally grateful for this program. 100% necessary to trust the process! Overall, I was incredibly satisfied by all knowledge gained.”

Ali Hager, July 2020 Graduate

“If you have the slightest bit of interest in this field, just go for it. I joined knowing nothing about massage. I had never had one and never intended to. I fell in love with it and now know why massage is so important. You owe it to yourself to at least give it a try. It will change your life forever. As for my experiences with my education here at BIMMI, I can see why everyone wants your students!”

Brandon Reyes, July 2020 Graduate

“It was apparent why Body in Mind found me as I found it in the past few months. During Covid-19, I would have wanted no one other than Mary Adams leading us in the preparation of the MBLEX while consistently advocating for us as a class to get back into school, and as a profession, to be recognized for our necessity amongst the medical community. Strength and love live behind the doors of Body in Mind Massage Institute. The experience was one I’d recommend to anyone. I feel Body in Mind aptly prepared me for my future with the training they provide. I was seeking a sense of connection through this course. I grew as a person and received more knowledge and applicable skills then I could have ever thought possible. Thank you, Mary and staff, for all you continue to do to provide quality and assurance to those seeking studies in massage therapy.”

Ryan Doyle, July 2020 Graduate

“What a life-changing program – I’m not sure my experience could have been improved – Covid and all releasing the outcome of what this was “supposed” to look like, BIMMI continued to deliver everything we sought after in this program, despite the uncertain circumstances. While the hands-on portion was not carried out as anticipated, I am confident that weathering out a pandemic together may be the preparation we did not ask for but need for the future of our careers. Thank you to BIMMI for the flexibility and perseverance through it all. We all see and appreciate your advocacy and efforts. We were able to witness firsthand what it means to be a “leader in the profession” and I am blessed to have been a student here during 2019-2020. I chose Body in Mind’s massage therapy program for the robust adaptation for preparation into the profession. The training undoubtedly prepares and instills the utmost confidence. But more importantly, the teaching and culture of this program are what stand out. I grew immensely in ways I could not have anticipated due to the environment that Mary cultivates here at BIMMI! Massage is a holistic modality and this journey will catalyze growth in all aspects of your life — body, mind, and soul. If you are open to it, investing in this program is investing in the human experience – for yourself and every life you come in contact with.”

Malcolm Wagner, July 2020 Graduate

“This program was definitely more than I expected — overall really awesome experience. I thought it was all fluff and buff but love what I got out of it. I would say to others joining, to go for it and give it your best.”

Jessica Torres, July 2020 Graduate

“Over the last 11 months, the knowledge we learned was great! There were many great memories, laughs and things taught! We had great teachers. For someone enrolling, I’d say try your best and the best will come! Never give up.”

Lindsay Rotsma, July 2020 Graduate

“For anyone that is considering joining the program, I would highly recommend it. You will learn a vast knowledge of the human body and numerous in-depth massage methods. Let Mary guide you on your journey and trust in the process.”

Vincent Abramo, July 2020 Graduate

“I feel like a better version of myself as a result of my training. I am more confident and believe wholeheartedly in my own abilities as a healer because of BIMMI. Walking into class on the first day, I remember feeling unsure of my path. After completion of this program, I know in my soul I have truly found my life’s calling. This program has exceeded all expectations that I had. I never thought I could learn so much in such a short period of time. The skills gained are invaluable and it has set us all up on the path for success in this industry. I learned so much about myself and my capabilities that will allow one to further expand as a therapist for years to come. Mary – the drive and heart you have is so admirable and the reason you deliver the best therapists around! I’ve never had a teacher in my life who advocates and cares so deeply for her students. You are paving the way in this industry and I am forever grateful. Despite Covid-19, we were able to persevere and get through it together and come out stronger because of it. That’s all thanks to the amazing culture that’s been created at BIMMI. Thank you being the best school, teacher, friend, mentor, and leader EVER. 😊”

Alexandra VonBriel, July 2020 Graduate

“Truly Mary did everything she could to make the uncontrollable burden of the worldwide pandemic easier for us. The course is excellent, and I learned so much about the industry, what it means to rally be a massage therapist and myself.”

Kristina Marrufo-Goforth, July 2020 Graduate

“I was very nervous about going back to school. So glad I stuck it out. This is the best decision of my life to date! Now I feel prepared and ready to head into the field. Loved the class, lots of fun being here. Going to miss this, but what an excellent experience. For someone considering enrolling in this training program: DO IT!”

Matt Iaccarino, July 2020 Graduate

“This program is so much more than meets the eyes. I found more than techniques and textbooks, I found myself. Incredibly graspable, warm atmosphere, Mary encourages and empowers you. This is definitely a one out of a hundred place and I’m so glad I said yes.”

Max Sobhani, July 2020 Graduate

“I think if you’re already considering joining a massage therapy program, then BIMMI is the best choice. I’m not being biased when I say that BIMMI is the best. It is the trust. The number of modalities that you learn in the program is amazing. Also, clinic (student) really gives you a chance to have hands-on experiences with real clients with real pathologies while still studying as a student. I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s a great program.”

Shakira Bell, July 2020 Graduate

“I was feeling lost and tired of feeling like I was wasting my time at jobs that were not making a difference. After this program, I am not feeling lost any more. I have found my purpose and slowly I will use my training to make the world a better place.”

Rebecca Esposito, July 2020 Graduate

“My experience here at BIMMI has been great. My confidence has improved dramatically from the first time I walked through the classroom door. I had no confidence (in the beginning) but with Mary’s help, I can honestly say it has improved.”

Iris Scarlata, July 2020 Graduate

– Nicole Pilon, December 2019 Graduate

“The program is wonderful 😊 – I’ve learned so much more than I thought possible in such a short amount of time (six months). I loved all of the hands-on practice we were provided with. I think it truly made a difference in how we gained our confidence and palpation skills! I wouldn’t change a thing about the past 6 months!”

– Sarah Strauss, December 2019 Graduate

Excellent care given after surgery of knee replacement and compassion and good student concern to give me assistance with sore muscles.

Since I am new to massage, all I can say it was a great experience. Professional. I don’t recall the last time I felt so relaxed.

– Brooke Z. 11/10/19

Excellent place to enjoy the passion of new students honing their craft.

– Joyce C. 11/10/19

It’s always a pleasure visiting Body in Mind for student clinics. It’s nice to be able to be part of a new MT’s practice. Very warm, compassionate atmosphere.

– Joan B. 11/10/19

I am seriously blown away at how professional my experience was. Kristina was wonderful. Communicative and gave me a great massage. Will totally recommend Body in Mind to peers as a school and as a Spa.

– Siera B. 11/9/19

It was nothing short of awesome to be paired with a young woman in pursuit of her goals. Hardworking, compassionate and easy to talk to are attributes I know Ashley to have and am excited to see her GO FOR THE GOLD at a school I know will only add to her already positive-oriented nature. Ashley and Body in Mind – a match made in heaven! I feel so totally blessed!


– Shary G. 11/10/19

Body in Mind has a wonderful program to bring the benefits of massage to the wellness of the community. Mary works hard to bring all she can to assist others to understand how the program works. This is not just Mary’s business, it is her mission. I was honored to experience some cranial sacral therapy incorporated into my massage today. It has been a few years since I have had this practice in my sessions, and I forgot its importance. Once again Mary seeks out all she can for her students and her clients.


– Helga B. 11/10/19

After my first session with Malcolm, I left feeling light on my feet. Was a great experience with no side effects of pain later, which is great because I suffer from myofascial pain. Malcolm is a great therapist and understands how to treat this sort of pain. Can’t wait for my next session.


– Joanne C. 11/9/19

“My time at BIMMI was a great one. I learned so much, including things about myself. I never realized BIMMI has brought me to Massage Envy, where I have worked for 2 years now and could not be happier. I am so grateful to have a career that I love.”


– Becca Carrer, LMT

“My experience was nothing short of life changing. Being with Mary and Body in Mind Massage Institute change my entire perspective in life and what I have to offer to the world. Mary always believed in us, even when we didn’t believe in ourselves. Mary has given me the confidence in myself as a massage therapist and as a person to know I can help change the world. When you believe in yourself, anything is possible. And when Mary is behind you, pushing every step of the way, you can achieve it all. I wake up with a grateful heart everyday knowing BIMMI was the start of the best of my life.”


– Catherine Facciolli, LMT

“I just want to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU for giving me the push I needed to get back into the field that I love! My license will be arriving in the mail any day now. I have a license # assigned to me (I checked the online database)!!! It’s been a long long road lol but it was well worth the time and energy. I appreciate your encouragement so much! It’s wonderful people like you who make the our world and community a better place.”


~ Melissa MacDonald, RYT, CPT, LMT

“My experiences with some of the recent graduates have been extremely positive. I have had some of the most passionate, dedicated, nurturing and prepared employees coming from Body in Mind more recently. They are understanding in the business and that it is not immediately working after graduating. They know to pay attention to their body mechanics and not overworking themselves right out of school. They are realistic in the process in which they will build their book, if they are brought to our team. 😊


I’ve had several who came as Oncology Trained because Mary encouraged them to take this additional training, which was amazing! One in particular has moved up the tiers immediately and continues to blow our minds each day with her performance- might I add that she is TINY- size wise- and many clients feel that she will not be FIRM but she is DEEP pressure, and this has helped us with making our clients believe it does NOT matter about their size, it is all about positioning and technique!

Overall though, there is a sense of genuine caring and compassion from the graduates from Body in Mind. It is difficult to put into words, but I can sense a difference from where someone goes to school, and I think those who attend Body in Mind have the upmost best interest for the clients in their minds, at all times, never about the “great schedule” or flexibility you’re able to have as an MT. I couldn’t be happier with the recent graduates of Body in Mind School of Massage. Keep them coming!!!!”

~ Amanda, General Spa Manager, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Spring Lake

“I have known Mary for a few years and her dedication to her school and each student both during their education and after graduation is truly amazing. For Mary, it’s about the people and the profession, not the numbers. She has a passion for this that words cannot describe. We have hired many graduates from Body in Mind at our Hand and Stone in Manahawkin and Lacey locations. All have been exceptionally well prepared in treatment skills, have a team-oriented philosophy and are able jump right in at our Hand and Stone in Manahawkin and Lacey locations. We know when we hire a new graduate or former graduate from Body in Mind to join our team, we have a well-educated, well rounded team oriented person that is going to be successful.”


~ Gregg, Owner, Hand and Stone, Manahawkin & Lacey Twp.

“Coming up on two weeks of massaging! Absolutely loving it! Thank you so much for being such an amazing teacher and mentor! I already have clients requesting me and rescheduling with me and I didn’t even get my business cards yet!”


~ Shawnee Riehl, Graduate

“A life-changing journey. Learned a lot more than massage. I feel very lucky to have found this school. Everyone has so much passion for this work. I’m truly inspired. I liked the clinics being in a real spa – not a big classroom- “acting out” giving a massage. I’m very proud to say I graduated from BIMMI.”


~ Sally Holden, Dec 2018 Graduate

“I graduated Body In Mind Massage Institute in May of 2016 after attending the 6 month day class. The education I received during my time there was thorough and intimate. I received one on one training with educated and compassionate instructors. I was not only educated academically, but I was stimulated emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I received an entire life-changing experience at Body In Mind Massage Institute.


It was not until I graduated and started working in the industry that I realized the reputation Body In Mind has for producing quality, compassionate and knowledgeable therapists. Most importantly, I found that my education had greatly prepared me for the successful career that I have lead thus far. I was prepared for my first job at Mysha Day Spa in Ocean, and had a great understanding of how to navigate the spa setting as a therapist. I was prepared when I took my career in the direction of Medical Massage and worked alongside an Acupuncturist at Traditional Acupuncture at The Jersey Shore. Lastly, I was prepared when I accepted the position of Service Manager at the Hand and Stone in Howell, NJ. My education has served as a foundation upon which I have been able to reach great heights in two short years, and I am not the minority! I regularly cross paths with other Body In Mind alumni who are also highly successful and flourishing!

If you believe in the art of healing and believe that you are called to it, then invest in yourself by choosing a school that can provide you with an extensive, quality education. Body In Mind Massage Institute is that school.”

~ Kiannah W.

“My hiring experience with Body in Mind has been Excellent to say the least. Mary fully prepares her students for both “hands on” as well as State testing requirements! I look forward to meeting her future students and providing them with a future workplace where they can thrive and grow their careers!!”


~ Kim, Monmouth County Spa Owner

“I have been the Hiring Manager for 2 local Ocean County Massage Franchise Locations for the last 6 years and have interviewed many Licensed Therapists that have graduated from Body In Mind. The greatest thing I’ve seen out of the graduates is how well rounded and educated they are. The curriculum certainly sets them up for success right out of school.”


~ Tom, LMT and Hiring Manager

“Body in Mind has given me so much more than I thought I signed up for.

By signing up for school I thought I’d just be educated in the massage therapy career, however, I learned how to be better in so many more ways, a better citizen, worker, neighbor and friend.

I was hoping to be equipped with the tools and skills to find a job in the field after graduation, but after talking with current licensed professionals I’ve found that our class has more then what is required to succeed. Between the experience gained inside and outside of the classroom and the prevalent medical treatments, our class has the hands on experience to exceed the standards of what’s expected of a newly licensed massage therapist. We have been given the skills, confidence and knowledge to succeed and thrive. I thought I’d graduate and be ready to work in the field, but what’s more is that I’m confident my class and I have the skills to help evolve and advance the humbling art that is massage therapy.”

Adam Huff, 6/8/17

“My experience at body in mind was definitely one that I will not soon forget. Mary is a wonderful and very knowledgeable teacher. Even after a log tiring day of work, I would come into class and feel happy and at peace and excited to learn. The atmosphere is so comfortable and Mary’s approach to teaching is one that is so easy to grasp. She really cares about her students and wants the best for them. I can confidently say that body and mind institute has shaped me to become the skilled and educated therapist I have become today.”


– Lauren Schweizer June 2017 Graduate

“Mary made learning easy and clear. I loved that the fact that we were becoming healers was ingrained in us. Learning hands on techniques from the start of the training was such a benefit, and being able to have lots of practice In a real massage therapy setting was really beneficial. I feel more confident and ready to embark on my new career as a Massage Therapist.”


-Joan Brenner June 2017 Graduate

“As a recent graduate of the BIM Massage Institute (June, 2017), I can attest to the excellent training received, and the care in which Mary, our instructor, carried out the classes. If you are taking the time to read this, chances are you, yourself, may be interested in becoming a massage therapist. There are a lot of schools out there to choose from, so it is important you choose wisely. At Body In Mind, you’re not just another number. Dare I say it; it’s personal! You count as an individual. Mary knows everyone’s name, their background, addresses all your questions and comments, and constantly monitors technique and gives feedback one-on- one. It’s like having your own personal trainer! My background prior to taking this program was in Information Technologies, and I had been doing that for years (I am currently 62 years of age). So, when it came time to reinvent myself career wise, I had some reservations such as; could I really do this? Well, because of the instructor’s caring and expert guidance, along with the camaraderie and willingness to share amongst the other future therapists in our group, happy to say, I found out, “Hell yeah, I can do this!” And what’s more, by the time we graduated, I found out that not only could I do it, but that I, and all the others in our class, could do it better than what many of the other schools are churning out! So, if you are interested in a career in massage therapy, I can think of no better school anywhere and no instructor better to teach you, than Mary at the Body In Mind Institute. Namaste”


– Joe Glazewski June 2017 Graduate

“The massage program at BIMMI exceeded my expectations by delivering a rare combination of self care techniques, hands on clinic hours, theory, personal stories, off-site events, and the receiving and giving of a weekly therapeutic massage! Mary was our fearless leader/inspiring mentor/wise spiritual guru and a neat lady to be around. She will prepare you before, during and after graduation to assist you in starting a career. If you are looking for a well rounded education in therapeutic massage where you will meet like minded friends for life, it’s right here in Toms River! Don’t hesitate just sign up”


-Laura Porcaro June 2017, Graduate

-Dora December 2016 Graduate

-Tina December 2016 Graduate

“BIMMI is a truly wonderful school. Once I realized how badly I wanted to become a massage therapist, I started my research and saw all of the amazing things past students and current clients had to say. When I came to meet Mary, I immediately knew this was the place for me. With such a relaxing, upbeat atmosphere I knew this is where I wanted my journey to begin. Now that it is over, I have gained many lifelong friendships. Never in a million years did I think I would meet such an amazing group of like minded people, and I have found a second family. There will always be a special place in my heart for this school and the amazing memories we created here together.”

-Brie, December 2016 Graduate

I could not be more grateful for my experience at BIMMI! It was truly a one of a kind experience– from the education I received to the amazing friendships I’ve gained. We walked in as complete strangers and finished feeling like family. I would also like to give a big shout out and more importantly THANK YOU to Mary! Mary is not only an incredible instructor, but also an incredible person– always pushing you to your highest potential! She went above and beyond to make sure we had the tools and knowledge needed to become amazing massage therapists. The early hands-on approach in addition to the outside sources she brings in, made all the difference in further enhancing my knowledge of the profession. Mary/ BIMMI helped me gain the confidence to help people in a way I never could have imagined. More importantly, she opened my eyes to the fact that it’s not about what you do, but why you do it. Thank you Mary and BIMMI, from the bottom of my heart! I would not be the massage therapist I am today if it wasn’t for you!


–Ashley, Dec ember 2016 Graduate

“These past 6 months have been an incredible experience filled with knowledge and individual attention. The instructors not only are about your education but also support and help you as you enter the career world of massage. I’m very thankful that I chose a school that cares about its students and the quality of education given.”


– Lauren K, May 2016 Graduate

Alumni/Graduate /Licensed Massage Therapist

“I would highly recommend Body In Mind Massage Institute to anyone not only looking for a massage school, but to learn about what it is like to be selfless and give back. What it is like to be patient with yourself and others. In the beginning, I was a little overwhelmed with the work, but within a couple of weeks, Mary had shown us a number of ideas and tricks to help us learn all of the information. Mary is a wonderful, patient leader who I am very proud to call my instructor. I have such a passion for holistic medicine and coming to this school every week motivates me more and more. Mary is by far one of the most inspirational women to me because she is so dedicated to her job, her students, health and knowledge. She is always smiling and giving hugs and will always to do her best with whatever she does. I had two other schools I was looking at and Bianca Rossi recommended BIMMI and honestly it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Thank you to every one of my fellow classmates for giving me this opportunity to open a new chapter in my life!”

“At Body in Mind Massage Institute, I gained all of the tools I needed to succeed in the competitive massage market. The smaller class size allowed ample 1 on 1 time with the instructor and helped me develop a style all my own.


I would suggest anyone interested in pursuing massage as a career to come and check this place out. The staff is very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and with the curriculum they use when you graduate you will have knowledge and tools to succeed.”
