Integrative Massage

I started my journey with the healing arts with the study of plants and herbs at the Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies in 1997.  After practicing as an Herbalist and continuing my studies with a Clinical path I found that I was referring many of my clients for massage or a hands on modality of treating the body.  In 1999 I explored an Acupressure Intensive at the Acupressure Institute and fell in love with the Meridians and hands on healing.  I subsequently received Maya Abdominal Massage which introduced me to the beautiful contribution of herbalism with a hands on modality.  To become an Arvigo practitioner required a practitioner license to practice which led me to Healing Spirits Massage training Program in Boulder, CO in 2000-2001 which helped me focus on my quality of touch and energetic qualities of hands on healing work.  I received an amazing training here which continues to inform my work.  Some of the modalities studied were Shiatsu with Jeffery Dann, Phenomenal Touch with Leslie Bruder, Pre Natal, and Post Partum, Swedish, Watsu, Sports Massage, Reiki, Trager, and Polarity.  I currently describe my work as eclectic or integrative.  I am a deep intuitive listener of bodies and strive to meet each body with what is required in the present session at hand.  I absolutely love bodywork and the bodies that show up to receive. I have been very blessed to have worked on so many for the last 14 years.  With 10 years of experience working at the Health Center of Integrative Therapies, a department that is part of Longmont United Hospital, I was able to work in many settings and use many modalities.  As part of an integrative health team, I learned about the power of touch as an integral part of the healing path.  

Recently I have added Access Consciousness to the mix with Bars as well as Body Processes.  This is amazing dynamic energy work that can help the body, spirit, mind step into more freedom.  In addition I collaborate with Christina Turco for Phenomenal Four Hands Massage at Dancing Hands Massages.  This bodywork is very similar to Lomi Lomi, a Hawaiian style of massage that is deeply nourishing.  We love to weave our dancing backgrounds into these sessions and enjoy each and every massage we give.  

I see clients in my Boulder office and have many session lengths to choose from as well as packages.  I look forward to our time together.
