Tonya Mason, LMBT, is our teaching assistant for Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, and Kinesiology in the evening program. She came to the field of massage therapy after years of constant “how” and “why” questions to her own chiropractor and massage therapist. One day they suggested that she look into massage as a career. After graduating from Body Therapy Institute, she worked for that same chiropractor two years while also focusing on medical massage continuing education courses, before leaving to focus on private practice.
Tonya is a self-proclaimed anatomy nerd, and enjoys working with anatomy students, with the goal of bringing them new insights into all the amazing ways that our bodies work, and all of the ways that bodywork can support wellness.
She practices myofascial, and medical massage, Neural Reset Therapy, and Reiki, often all in the same session. She loves the blend of science and art, technical and creative, physical and energetic, analytical and empathetic that help her find creative ways to help her clients.
