Hi Randa...welcome to Albuquerque! I hope you enjoy everything the Southwest has to offer. Placitas is a beautiful place...good choice. I am the Director of Education at UTMI, a massage therapy school located in the midtown area of Albuquerque. If I can help you in any way, please let me know. Universal Therapeutic Massage Institute also has a facebook page. I update alumni info, new job postings, chair massage requests as frequently as possible. If I can recommend anything (restaurants, destinations, MT job info, etc), please let me know or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy this wonderful place we call home and Happy 2010!
