Kayla (Kay), LMT

Kay Grayson graduated from Emily Griffith Technical College and is currently a licensed massage therapist in Colorado. Kayla found her passion in massage therapy to provide comfort and relief for her sister, who is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Her enthusiasm for massage shows through her focused style. She specializes in working on the neck and shoulders, and is determined to help relieve tension headaches and poor posture. She prioritizes mental health and wellbeing through naturalistic means, providing a different option for a person’s health. She also specializes in integrative massage, hot stones, and deep Swedish.

On her free time, Kayla enjoys drawing and graphic design, going to concerts, watching movies, and spending time with friends and family.


 

Aleeta, LMT

Aleeta graduated from the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage and has been practicing full time since 2008. Her philosophy is that the more bodywork you receive, the better you are able to detect when you need attention on specific areas. This also helps the body and mind connect so we can truly appreciate how they affect one another. This can then empower us to more proactive in learning how to take care of ourselves.

She believes that everything we do in our lives has the potential to create repetitive stress on our bodies and minds, and just the act of allowing time for self-care can help people figure out the puzzles of their daily actions and the postures it creates. Part of her treatment process is listening to what a client requests and intuitively working out the patterns by using her knowledge and experience to see how the body responds. Her specialty is the neck, shoulder, jaw, upper back, and arms, but looks forward to the opportunity with whatever is presented to try and bring healing and relief.

Aleeta believes in helping people find their path to wellness one massage at a time.

 


 

Emily (Em), LMT

Emily graduated from the Emily Griffith Technical College Massage Therapy Program in 2019. She excelled as a student and worked on clients in the school clinic, practicing a variety of techniques and modalities including deep tissue, prenatal, cupping, hydrotherapy, and hot stones. Emily also has a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy from Fort Lewis College where she discovered her interest in ethics. She believes that we cannot be our best without taking care of ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally, and believes that massage can play a significant role in bettering all of these areas of our lives.

A typical massage with Emily includes a mixture of slow, relaxing techniques combined with deeper, more specific work on focus areas. If you’re looking for an overall feeling of deep relaxation but still want that knot that’s been bothering you worked out, Emily is the therapist for you. She allows her intuition and compassion for her clients to guide her through each session and makes informed and thorough treatment plans unique to each client’s specific needs.

When Emily is not giving a massage, you can find her on a mountain or lounging in one of her many flower or vegetable gardens.

Ali, LMT, LAc, Dipl Ac

Ali grew up in a family that had a strong belief in natural health. Her grandfather was an herbalist and organic grain farmer (retired) and had instilled the foundations of seeking natural cures first; as someone who had spent a lot of time meditating with the Earth, he always reminded me that we have been provided everything we need to have optimal health.

Upon graduating 15 years ago, Ali started her career as a therapist working in Germany at an R&R program for active-duty military stationed overseas. After a couple of years out of the country, she felt strongly pulled to come home to pursue an acupuncture education and completed studies at the American Institute of Alternative Medicine in 2011. Since then she has been practicing both modalities.

Ali likes to support and empower people to listen to their own intuition and to assess their personal healing needs through education and getting in tune with the body. She believes through a little education and outside help, you can tap into powerful self-care. As a provider, she deeply understands anxiety, moods, addiction, and pain. Her massage focuses on identifying trouble areas in the muscles, postural holding patterns, emotional stresses and work-related muscular usage using various techniques including acupuncture, gua sha, deep tissue massage, acupressure, hot stones, and cupping. She loves working with people, and gets excited about helping them achieve their optimal health.

Ali has helped a lot of athletic clients, has worked with a lot of clients recovering from hip surgeries, and has developed a passion for working on hips and legs. Even in clients without noticeable issues in these areas, she has noticed that the legs don’t complain much, but they always say “thank you.”


 

Adrianne, LMT

Adrianne began her journey in bodywork when she was just 18. At the time, She wasn’t sure 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 she had the ability to be extremely present with her clients, attune her touch with above-average intuition, and facilitate a deeply peaceful environment. 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 exceptional 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.

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


 

Anna, LMT

As a native of Colorado and the Front Range, Anna has been inspired by the natural beauty of our state to achieve a life of wellness for herself and those around her. After earning her undergraduate degree at CU Boulder, building a successful career in the organic produce industry, and living abroad for five years while earning a graduate degree, she decided to pursue a hands-on skill. Massage therapy enabled her to be creative and active while continuing to focus on her own health, the health of her community, and the health of the planet. Anna is constantly expanding her toolbox of massage therapy skills but specializes in Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, lymphatic drainage, neuromuscular therapy, and range of motion. She also integrates modalities such as myofascial release, motion palpation, hot stone, sports massage, body scrubs and has experience working with children and seniors.
