At our massage school we believe in the transformational power of therapeutic massage and caring professional relationships. We respect the human body in all sizes, shapes, colors, and conditions. With reverence we recognize its power to work, to play, and to heal. We value careful science and cultivated intuition as essential to developing both the skill and the art of massage. We know that when compassion and acceptance guide skilled technique, our work supports the healing process.
Our vision honors the power of body, mind and spirit. Our mission to train high-quality massage therapists in a culture that encourages the growth of each member of the school community requires both distinguished professional standards and a commitment to the success of each student. Beginning with attention to self-care and personal development, Cortiva prepares students to make a healthy difference in the lives of people they touch.
