I moved to Durango in March of 2019. I had been residing in Telluride and Norwood Colorado for 42 years. Six of those years were spent massaging at two different chiropractic clinics, freelancing, and working in my private studio as well as 3 spas. A temporary three year move to Boulder and Longmont Colorado involved my developing two thriving private massage studios.
The Connecting Point School of Massage, a state-certified school in Telluride, is where I obtained my certificate (April 8th, 2004). The teachings focused on Swedish massage, anatomy, physiology, and several different modalities.
Swedish massage is the basis of my treatment. It begins with effleurage, petrissage, friction, vibration, tapotemont, and passive rotations. Advanced techniques are incorporated and include trigger-point release, forearm and elbow methods, connective-tissue work, reflexology on feet and hands (specific points that are reflective to related parts of the body), Reiki (ancient healing art that incorporates with the energy flow throughout the body), sports massage, deep tissue work when required in a few areas, Lomi-Lomi, and hot towel applications. The use of hot stones for warming and relaxation of the body’s tissue and over all deep tissue can be requested when making your appointment.
For over 45 years I have been receiving massage to enhance my wellbeing.
My intention as a massage therapist at Durango Hot Springs is to give a massage to YOU that will benefit your overall health and leave you feeling relaxed, renewed, and guided towards a more vibrant life!
