 Adrianne Tamar Arachne, LMT

Adrianne began her 11-year-long journey in bodywork when she was just 18. She wasn’t entirely sure, at the time, why she was being led to the healing arts.. but a constellation of fates seemed to guide her in that direction. As it turned out, Adrianne discovered that she had the ability to be extremely present with her clients, attune her touch with above-average intuition, and facilitate a deeply peaceful environment. And above all, she fell in love with the work! Adrianne received her certification from Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in Southern California, and has worked in a variety of top clinics across Southern California, the Bay Area, and Colorado. She’s been blessed with the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients, and prides herself on her ability to help any person feel comfortable in their own skin. “You make people feel like their energy can just plop down comfortably!” her client Natascha says.

Adrianne is well-practiced in many modalities, including Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Neuromuscular, Swedish, Sports, but finds that those who like a slow, deep, connected massage are often her most consistent clientele. Adrianne continues to believe in massage because of the obvious healing power that she witnesses in her clients, and also because of its irreplaceable role as the oldest healing modality in the world. She feels blessed to continue to offer space, time, and talents to the world of hands-on healing.

Ali Nolan, LMT, LAc, Dipl Ac

Julz White, LMT

julz@renewmassagestudio.com

renewheadshot12Julz has practiced her gift here in the Rockies for ten years strong and has absolutely loved every second of it. Her unique mix of deep tissue, structural integration, and sports is relaxing and results are lasting. Her professional eye is keen to postural indifference and she strongly feels the need to manipulate it.
She has always been very intuitive and believes that there’s a light energy in us all. And, if you can learn to harness that energy and use it for health, then you absolutely should!

Julz grew up on a commune in Gainesville, Florida and had an assortment of experiences at her fingertips. Her mother had scoliosis so badly that she needed traction every night just for minor pain relief. Julz would casually work on her and could see and feel the impact it had on her quality of life. She knew there was something powerful to it, so she made the best decision of her life and went to the Denver School of Massage Therapy in Westminster, Colorado.

Colorado’s active lifestyles almost requires a good massage every month. With the amazing hiking & cycling to the four- wheeling & snow sports, there’s always a reason to be sore. Julz strongly urges everyone to get routine bodywork to enhance their lives as well as ease the pain, tension, or stress the body holds onto. Julz’ one wish is to heal the world, one person at a time.
