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.

Professional n nice ppl

Tina is a knowledgeable and intuitive massage therapist. She worked on my neck, shoulders, and face, and I walked out feeling as thought my head was 10 lbs lighter. I could also rotate my neck more easily. Highly recommended.

Tina, who is very knowledgable about all aspects of a body puts you in a comfortable setting, easing the pain your feeling to a hypnotic state of relaxation. Thank you so much for the energy you put into your healing hands to remove any negative feelings or pain from my body, my body feels free.

Went in for a relaxing massage and got so much more. I’m usually not a talker but she has such an open inviting personality it’s hard not to talk.
