Southeastern Institute, formerly know as "The Southeastern School of Neuromuscular Massage" of Charlotte was founded in 1994. Upon approval by the North Carolina Board of Massage & Bodywork Therapy, the school was established to provide a clinically based curriculum in the Professional Massage Therapy training program.
