“Massage and Bodywork resonates within me and has for as long as I can remember. I believe that there is a unique connection between all of us and I enjoy exploring this connection with the body in a therapeutic and relaxing setting. My goal is to become a great mind-body-spirit facilitator while also working with the athlete in all of us. There is no greater gift than to be able to help someone find health and wholeness and a relaxed body!”

She has advanced certifications in Neuromuscular Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Thai Yoga Massage, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy and Sports Massage.

"I consider myself caring, energetic, and a very personable therapist. In my sessions I like to pour fun, love and knowledge into each massage to help guide you into a safe and welcoming space that will allow your body to feel total acceptance, relaxation, and well-being. I love working with any level of athlete , whether that be the weekend warrior or professional cyclist.
I also really enjoy helping people feel completely relaxed after a long day, a tough week, or maybe just because I have always known that I wanted to help people in some way, and my thirst for knowledge of the human body has led me to a career in Massage Therapy. I feel it is an area of specialty where I will never stop learning about the amazing ability’s of our body’s and our hearts. My goal as a Massage Therapist is to share massage with the world, to find a way to make massage available for everybody.

Jane Keys - Massage Therapist
Jane received her 700-hour massage therapy certification from the Colorado School of Healing Arts in December of 2010. Her curiosity for cross-cultural alternative medicine developed prior to receiving her Bachelor of Arts in psychology from the University of Redlands (Southern California) in May of 2008. Recently certified in Thai For The Table, this course integrated Jane’s love for yoga into a new way of practicing bodywork. Jane intuitively incorporates breath work, stretching and a firmer touch to allow the body to really let go and relax to a deeper level. She specializes in deep tissue (trigger point therapy), sports massage, swedish, hot stone, and pre-natal. Jane is also interested in structural integration work and plans on getting her certification in myofascial release.
“I have the curiosity and wonder of a child…I question everything, and am always wanting to learn more. Touch has been my biggest form of communication throughout my life and making people feel better is an automatic reflex I naturally do well. Massage Therapy lets me do all of these things together—I feel so blessed to have turned what I know and love into a profession!”

Kelsey Luft - Massage Therapist
Kelsey graduated with an AOS in Massage Therapy in April of 2010. She comes from a family of medical professionals so, naturally gravitated towards the medical and therapeutic side of massage. Kelsey specializes in deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy and trigger point massage.
I am always eager to learn new information and hope to use this trait to gain further knowledge about massage. I love helping people with their problems and when someone comes in with pain and discomfort I listen to their concerns and work within their comfort level to release those issues. Nothing gives me greater joy than to see them walk out improved and feeling better, then I think to myself “Wow, I was a part of that. I helped someone lead a healthier and better lifestyle.”
I was born in a small town in central Kansas and was moved to Colorado by my parents when I was 6 months old. I spent my summers with my grandparents in north central Kansas so I like to consider myself a dual citizen. I love sports, especially college basketball (go Jayhawks!) and am happy to live in such a beautiful state that offers so many opportunities for outdoor activities.

"I strive to be a very caring and adaptable therapist. I believe in allowing the person I am working on to determine their own experience. Whether you need a time of quiet reflection or a constant exchange; slow and gentle or targeted and intense. What I love the most is delivering exactly the right experience and results for each massage I give. I have always loved helping people and even growing up I was fascinated by the play of muscles. I have a boundless appetite for information about our bodies and its many intricacies. I really enjoy sharing all the knowledge and wonder I've acquired, every person I touch teaches me more about the body and its amazing processes. I am Thankful to have found a career that fills my days with healing, beauty and constant connections with wonderful people. Every day I get to learn more and revel in the elegance of humanity. "

Abi Steiner - Massage Therapist
Graduated from the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado in 2009 and is certified in Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular therapy, Sports massage and Myofascial release. Before becoming a massage therapist, she was an EMT (emergency medical technician).
“I found that as an EMT, I enjoyed working with those who are in need of physical assistance. I felt, however, that it became too emotionally draining for me to pursue my career in that area. I found massage therapy to be a great fit, as I am able to help relieve pain, help people overcome physical ailments, and still keep myself healthy and happy. Treatments I administer often include stretches, focus on breathing and slow, deep pressure. I focus not just on the problem at hand, but outside influences that may be the root of the problem. My work is also usually very focused, I pay great attention to detail. Pressure tends to be very deep, but tender in nature. I approach each person with understanding. I know how it feels to be in pain, and how frustrating the healing process can be. I go into every session, open and willing, and put focus on your individual needs. Time with me, is your time. It is time for you to accept what your body, mind, and spirit needs.
A large part of my philosophy on healing includes self care. Sessions often end with observations (what I notice during the sessions) and if appropriate, stretches or suggestions to take home, so you can get to know your own body, and further your own healing.
