I am a fairly new student currently attending Cortiva Institute for "Professional Massage Therapy" with Ms. Wendy. She is so sweet, you can tell she genuinely cares about her students and wants us to do great things. I have had things go on outside of school and she has been nothing but supportive and understanding. She doesn't even know all the great things her students say about her when she's not around. Ms. Wendy is SO loved there and she deserves all her flowers. I also really appreciate Randy for helping me get enrolled and the Campus Director for being available and understanding to your needs. Now with the cons....very fast pace. Its very overwhelming and a lot to take in and can likely deter someone who gets easily deterred or overwhelmed in school settings like i was in high school. Luckily the staff is understanding and they give you the time to make it up if need be. Overall great school that has its kinks like every other school out there. Would recommend to ANYONE. We would love to have you.

My experience at Cortiva was nothing less than amazing. it was my perfect little bubble and i wouldn’t have traded it for the world! My teacher Ms. Addy was so amazing, she was helpful and knew when to be a friend but also knew when to be a teacher. She was an amazing teacher and i hope she will continue to teach me forever as i grow in this career. Katie Gray was Ms. Addy’s TA and she was the bomb. She always made sure that everything was set up, that everything was stocked, she was the extra hand we needed. 10/10 experience!!
