Cortiva's academics are some of the best. While earning your initial certification for liscensure you learn Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofacial Release, and Prenatal massage techniques; all of your basic modalities. With these you have the potential to work anywhere. On top of the basic curriculum you are also eligible for Continuing Education Courses in subjects such as Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage, Thai Massage, Russian Sports Massage, extended studies in Prenatal and Deep Tissue, and many others. These courses are taught by experts in their fields but are not simply about the physical aspect of the massage but also the deeper feeling, energy, and culture behind the types of massage, which are all important for proper execution. Registering for classes is a breeze because your curriculum is set for you in a logical order so the classes tie into each other. As for the teachers, they are all working Massage Therapists, even the front office personnel are, which gives them an inside knowledge of what they are teaching.
