Meet the Renew Team:
Maura’s love for massage started while she was working as an esthetician. When she would give her client’s face massages, they would often fall asleep. It was then she discovered the calming effects of massage. In 2016 Maura completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training, her shift in consciousness changed and started to understand the deeper connection between the body and the mind. In January 2019, Maura graduated from Cortiva Institute, where she was introduced to over 12 different modalities. Combining yoga and energy work with massage has strengthened her intuition and allows her to become fully present with her client.
Maura strongly believes that when we become disconnected with ourselves, we become more susceptible to being at dis-ease and manifesting physical discomfort. Maura uses her training and skills to invite her clients to tune into their bodies and heal within.

Julz White, LMT
Julz is celebrating her 3rd year here at Renew, and over 13 years of massage experience!
Julz ignited her passion for massage therapy at a young age after her mother was diagnosed with scoliosis. She watched her mother struggle with barbaric treatments that didn’t really help with her pain, and in her quest to help her mother with pain relief, she started massaging. She would give her mother massages on the floor, and Julz naturally found all the areas that needed attention. Using her passion for massage and the experience of helping her mother, Juliann White graduated from the Denver School of Massage Therapy in 2005, at the top of her class.
Julz has training in over 12 modalities, and some of her favorite to perform are Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Structural Integration, Injury, Russian Sports, Cranial Sacral, Reflexology, Hot Stone, and Prenatal, except during the 1st trimester. She has an impeccable intuition and a way of feeling and listening to the body and what it needs, and fine-tuning as she sees fit. Julz has a wide range of pressure and will communicate with you to find the best level for your body.
A practical intake with Julz involves postural assessment, which you may or may not even notice. She asks questions about what your body does on a daily basis, and if you have hobbies or sports that you perform regularly. She is known for being completely present for clients before, during and after the session; asking what your massage goals are and creating a therapeutic plan, while always paying special attention requested areas.
Julz massage sessions are masterful and integrative, blending a variety of techniques together. Stretching is usually included in her massages and is happy to work with clients on body mechanics so stretches can be performed safely at home. Homework is never pressured but recommended for a better, all around, therapeutic experience.
Julz has a passion to heal the world, one hour at a time. She integrates her personally crafted essential oil blends and has mastered the CBD infused massage. Check out her reviews and come to see for yourself what it’s like to receive bodywork from a skilled professional with over 13 years experience.
Emily Kolb, LMT
Emily is a well-rounded massage therapist who specializes in Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Sports massage. She earned her massage therapy license from Lauterstein-Conway Massage School in Austin, TX in 2015. Over the course of her practice, Emily’s curiosity in structural work intensified as she found herself searching for the root cause of each symptom and grew tired of simply “chasing pain.” This curiosity led her to the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, CO, and she is now able to offer clients Rolfing services in addition to massage therapy. Rolfing is a method of bodywork that addresses the root cause of structural concerns, not just the symptoms.
The foundation of Emily’s work is rooted in the principle of wholism. When working with clients, she strives to meet one’s body where it is while also seeking to understand where it has been. At her core, she appreciates the power of interconnectedness and believes that one’s individual parts cannot be fully understood without understanding the entire whole. Emily’s philosophy is that every client is unique and that optimal results are only achieved when she and her client work together collaboratively while supporting each client in reaching his/her desired goals. She finds bodywork profoundly rewarding as she gets a front-row seat to witnessing others grow, transform their minds and bodies, and become the best versions of themselves.
When Emily is not working as a Rolfer or Massage Therapist, you can find her outdoors being physically active. She enjoys climbing mountains or trail running with her two dogs, Sambo and Zeyda. She loves to travel, explore local restaurants, and connect with new people.

Natalie Vimont, LMT
Natalie started paying attention to massage techniques when she was about five years old, hanging around college-students and hearing them ooh and aah over the back rubs they were trading. In 2001 she apprenticed in Japanese pressure-point therapy but didn’t pursue licensure until 2013 when she began attending Colorado School of Healing Arts in Lakewood, Colorado. She knew that massage could help people physically feel and function better, but she didn’t anticipate how encompassing massage can be, supporting mental and emotional health along with multiple body systems. The revelation fueled her to obtain certifications in Reflexology, Sports Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, and Cranio-Sacral Massage in addition to the standard Deep Tissue Swedish program. She also augmented her training with classes in Hydrotherapy (hot stone), Applied Kinesiology, Trauma Touch Therapy, and Raindrop Essential Oil Massage Treatment, among others.
Natalie uses all of her training and skills to invite her clients into a collaborative relationship with their body to alleviate physical discomfort, effectively respond to body signals, and develop a relationship of trust with their body. So many of us get caught up anticipating where our bodies might limit our daily experience. “Our attention tends to gravitate to how tired we are, where we feel a headache coming on, how scattered our thoughts are, and where we are experiencing pain. While all of these sensations are part of the human experience, our approach to them leads us to mistrust our bodies, always watching for where and how they will limit our abilities to fully function at a given moment.” Through her individually tailored, integrative massage sessions, Natalie seeks to enable a relationship with the body that honors the amazing work our bodies do for us every second of our lives, to translate the sensations of the body into healthy recognition of what the body is communicating and to effectively respond using massage techniques so the body becomes a facilitator for a full and engaged life. She uses massage, not just for momentary relaxation, but to support whole being health that endures beyond the time her clients spend on her table.
Kayla Murray, LMT

She has a strong passion for art and nature and often will suggest these to her clients as continued work for their healing outside of the treatment room. She is constantly expanding her knowledge of holistic health, and new modalities of healing for herself and her clients. If you like deep, therapeutic work, then she is the therapist for you.

Adrianne Tamar Arachne, LMT

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.
