Hi there! I'm Tina Tongen LMT, AOS, CYT, Licensed Massage Therapist in Florida (MA97820) and Colorado (MT.11470) with an Associate Degree in Occupational Studies and Certified Yoga Teacher. (Click on the "Reviews" tab on the right to see reviews from Boulder and Denver.) 
...
I offer advanced massage therapy with yoga and self-care education through my practice, Tongen Touch™. I specialize in treating neck and shoulder pain while helping you to Breath Well + Feel Good so you can do the things that matter to you!
...
I enjoy supporting business owners, health practitioners, athletes, and high-performers who know that valuing your health helps you to be your best! 
...
A holistic approach recognizes health as a function of how well mind-body-spirit work together. Tongen Touch™ treatments begin with listening to your whole system. So that we may better support what you need that day, first sessions are at least 60 minutes to allow time to work in this way. 
...
About me? I love the process of healing... I moved to Colorado in 2008 to live in a yoga ashram for 7 months, where I learned the value of working within community, singing, and meditating everyday. Ayurvedic health practices were my introduction to working with people 1-1 and I was hooked! I earned my 200-hr Certification as a Yoga Teacher at the Shambhava School Yoga.
...
I officially moved to Boulder to study at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy for 2 years, where I earned my 1000-hr Certification in Massage Therapy and 500-hr Associate Degree in Occupational Studies. Manual Therapy Sessions are based on this work. 
...
After studying Orthopedic Massage, I entered a community intent on healing not just the body, but the spirit. I studied with the Institute for Phenomenal Touch for 4 years, earning a Master Practitioner Certification in Phenomenal Touch Massage. Within this community I was blessed to experience the kind of compassion that is truly rare, and I am a much happier person for it! The Ocean Session is inspired by this work. 
...
I'm grateful also to the Ridhwan School in Boulder, where I practiced embodied meditation for 6 years. The ability to slow down, breathe, and sense the body supports me to heal mind-body-spirit. Embodied Meditation Sessions are based on this work. 
...
Tongen Touch™ is a blend of all of these and more, from my studies over the past 13 years. 
...
Being in a community of massage therapists, yoga practitioners, acupuncturists, talk therapists, and meditation teachers has allowed me to experience the real joy of being connected to a caring environment focused on building skills to be present with ourselves and others, and more fully enjoy life.  
...
I'm grateful to offer healing work from this place.

The total massage experience was awesome! Before the massage was started, Ms. Tongen asked about trouble spots and other areas to address. During the session, there was a Himalayan salt light on in one corner, with soft, relaxing music playing in the background. I Iistened/responded appropriately to the breathing technique instructions given by Ms. Tongen throughout the session. I found that I was able to breathe better when lying down and slept very well. I will definitely go back for another session. Ms. Tongen has many types of services to offer, and I highly recommend trying one of her sessions.

Tina is a great communicator, something I really appreciate; provide feedback it in the moment and you will both have a better experience.
by Megan on Mar 23
Tina listened to my concerns and she focused on my tightest areas. That might sound simple, but I've had a lot of full body massages that seem rushed and are just OK all over. I preferred Tina's method of really focusing and working out my areas of concern (and doing a fantastic job!). I liked that she guided some breathing exercises as well which allowed me to relax into the space and just enjoy the massage!

She is my favorite massage therapist ever!
by Tyler on Nov 03
She took the time to get my body into a state of reception so that I could benefit from the bodywork without resistant. Calming the nervous system is everything in this process and Tina does it with ease and grace.
