Meet the owner of Tucson Massage CE Institute


Dianne ‘Mo’ Taith, MA, LMT

Since I was a young girl, I’ve felt drawn towards the service of others. Concocting ‘healing salves’ from plants and oils and, sometimes, mud. In my mind, I was creating potions that would help others with illnesses and sometimes sadness.

Having always been the “chubby girl”, I experienced bullying and ridicule from peers and strangers. At the time, I didn’t understand until I was a grown woman that those encounters were breaking open my heart and would eventually lead me to assist in building up the confidence, self-worth, repletion, joy, self-respect, and self-confidence of others.

Simply put, my love language is to be of service to others.

I created Tucson Massage CE Institute to share what I’ve learned as a wellness facilitator, massage therapist, and student of life and psychology with others. My desire, and focus, is in educating and assisting others who find themselves desiring to elevate their knowledge of this profound craft so that they may participate in the well-being of their clients.

Don’t be afraid to be great!
