School History - Tucson
Cortiva Institute – Tucson was co-founded by Margaret Avery Moon and incorporated in the State of Arizona in September 1982 as The Desert Institute of the Healing Arts.
We are proud to bring our Tucson heritage to the Cortiva family of massage therapy schools. Together we have grown, embracing the changing needs of our students, employers, community, and the profession.
Over 2,500 students have graduated from the Tucson campus since our beginning in 1982, and they proudly represent the massage therapy and bodywork profession around the world.
