I moved to Boulder in 1993. These days, if I’m not working, I’m probably outside challenging myself in the mountains. Currently, I spend most of my playtime trail running and introducing my son to these amazing Rocky Mountains. I also love rock climbing and yoga.
Receiving massage therapy has been critical to my success as an ultra-runner, rock climber and human being. Having benefited greatly from massage, I entered the field with the thought that I could help others enhance their lives. I have been practicing since 2004 and I still LOVE my work.
I understand what it takes to challenge yourself, the effort that it requires and how injuries affect your body and your mind. I know massage will benefit you whether you’re a weekend warrior, competitive athlete or self-proclaimed work-aholic.
I am an Honors Graduate from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy. I have over 1100 hours of training in

Therapeutic Massage is a powerful tool for both preventative and rehabilitative aspects of your health care routine. Increased states of relaxation improve the functioning of the mind and body; however, massage is about more than just feeling good.
Massage is about education. It is educating your muscles and connective tissue on proper function as well as educating you on how to use your body. Our postural and biomechanical patterns directly affect our musculature. If these patterns deviate from our intended design, muscle tension can lead to pain, decreased range of motion, nerve impingement and more.
I am fortunate to have the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and expertise so you can enhance your life and the lives of those around you. It is my goal to help you prevent and recover from injuries as well as educate you about your role in these processes so that you can get back to your routine quickly – be it early morning trail runs, tending to your garden or your desk job!
