Maria Gonzalez Massage Therapy Student's Class testimonialI felt the quality of my [massage therapy] education was top notch. Celebrating one’s talent is brought out by the expertise Christine Tinner has – that is her gift.” — Maria Gonzalez

 

Maria Gonzalez’s story

Maria was one of Christine’s first students in 1999 at Mountain Heart School of Bodywork in Crested Butte, Colorado, a school Christine co-founded. Maria has been a professional massage therapist for fifteen years in Aspen, Colorado, her only profession and job during all those years. Maria attributes her success as a massage therapist to her excellent training. According to Maria, the courses she took solidly prepared her to make ethical decisions, develop her character, learn effective body mechanics, massage therapy expertise, and create her “professionalism, poise, and polish.”

Maria originally thought that being a massage therapist would be luxurious. However, she cautions that the profession demands you wear sweat pants, deal with demanding clients, be a team player, hustle, accept repetitive work, and work hours that may take up your whole day, even evenings, and weekends. Maria stays in shape by hiking, and doing Pilates. She says that doing massage is her exercise some days. She has never been hurt as a massage therapist because of her excellent body mechanics. Maria has also never advertised. She uses her power of intention for each treatment, creating an excellent experience for each client and sustaining her excellent reputation and massage therapy practice.

Maria suggests students looking for a massage therapy school look for diversity of content, training in ethical boundaries, character development, and development of proper body mechanics.

Felicia Marcus Massage Therapist Training StudentChristine taught me not only technical information, which she taught in a fun way that helped my brain learn, but she also taught me presence. Christine is really calm, nurturing, and helps people relax, which she taught me just by example. I felt Christine’s nurturing come out through her hands and her heart.

Christine taught me anatomy in a way I appreciated. She made it easy to learn, not so technical. She can take things apart and make everything slow and clear and understandable.”

 

Felicia Marcus’ story

Felicia Marcus has been a massage therapist for 16 years. She has a Masters in Psychology. She attributes her longevity as a therapist and her health to yoga, exercise, and a healthy diet. Massage therapy has been Felicia’s primary profession. Felicia says her keys to success as a therapist are her ability to nurture and her ability to be professional having learned both qualities through her initial massage therapy training with Christine. Felicia is also grateful that Christine helped her to develop a solid business plan, her business name, logo, and business cards, so when she graduated she was ready to open a massage therapy practice. Felicia felt that she was apart of something during her massage therapy training and is proud of her massage therapy education.
