Cortiva Institute - Scottsdale Reviews
I will never forget the first time I toured the campus. I was initially unimpressed with the facilities until they showed me around and interviewed ME! They made it clear that they aren't about the money students bring to the institution, they care about whether or not you will succeed and if you will contribute in a positive manner to the school. It was the first time I'd found a school that was more about the students and learning than the money and that's what convinced me to choose Cortiva.
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.
My school has only one program but it is an excellent one. You learn all your basic techniques for performing an effective and enjoyable massage while also preparing to enter the work force right out of school. Outside of the classroom you get working experience while working in the school's Massage Clinic as well as working at various events around town such as Expos, Races, etc. Upon graduation you are assisted by expert career services in finding not just work but work in the area of YOUR interest; they are always telling us, "You perform best in the environment that makes you the happiest." After graduating and beginning to work Cortiva still continues to support you with Continuing Education Courses, which are needed to keep you licensed, and the courses are taught by both instructors at the institute and world renown experts in their moralities. Cortiva is a phenomenal institution and I would recommend it to anyone looking to become a Massage Therapist.
