Abi S. - 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.

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.
