Eric’s nature-oriented background gives him a unique perspective on how to help people in need of pain relief and relaxation. He studied physics and earth sciences and even worked as a computer programmer in the business realm for several years, but left the corporate world and spent a year traveling in South America doing wildlife conservation volunteering. In 2015 he rededicated his life to connecting directly with people, understanding the mind and body and working to first improve his own health and then to share his knowledge with those around him so they can improve their own. Eric graduated from the Healing Spirits Massage Program in Boulder and then traveled shortly thereafter to Thailand and Bali to study Thai Yoga massage for nearly 3 months. There he developed an appreciation of the culture where the practice originated over 2000 years ago. Working the traditions of East and West, and even melding them when needed, he creates sessions with an easy relaxing flow alongside specific therapeutic focus. Eric offers integrative massage using deep-tissue, Swedish, neuromuscular, and myofascial techniques on the table, and of course traditional Thai Yoga massage in fully clothed sessions on a comfy floor mat. When not practicing massage, Eric enjoys being outdoors (especially birdwatching), playing and listening to music, reading, learning about cognitive science, and being an avid trail-runner here in the foothills of the Front Range of Colorado.
Emilia is a passionate massage therapist motivated to bring greater balance to every body she works with. Through her studies of thai massage in northern Thailand, her graduation from Denver Integrative Massage School, and her studies of yoga in India, she is equipped to offer complete body, mind, and energetic rejuvenation.
She combines Eastern and Western techniques with stretching and acupressure points, moving energy through the meridians. She takes an integrative approach, blending many different techniques to get whatever result that your body is asking for that day. Any given session could include myofascial release, hot stones, cupping, gua-sha, warm bamboo, thai massage, deep tissue, swedish, and trigger point therapy. You may request any concentration of modalities listed, or a session of traditional thai massage. For this, you would remain in clothing you can be comfortably stretched in, on a floor mat.
Emilia’s understanding of how the body holds on to stress, trauma, and stagnant emotions started with her own healing journey. This has led her to be deeply empathetic with every person she works with, and inspired to have her own story bring greater ease to those of others. Compassion, true listening, and genuine care are practices she brings into every session.
Receiving a good massage is one of the best things I’ve experienced! Knowing how amazing it feels, it gives me meaningful satisfaction to be able to offer this gift to others.
In 2013, I graduated from Healing Spirits massage training program in Boulder which provided me a well-rounded foundation in working with clients in a holistic way. Since then, I’ve continued my learning in varying bodywork and holistic healing modalities including nutrition, herbal medicine, yoga, dance, nature connection, and sound healing. I believe in a well lived life in which everyday is celebrated through artistic embodied expression.
As a massage therapist, I maintain a presence balanced in gentleness, calm, and firm rootedness. Typically, my touch is slow, fluid, and deep. I practice deep listening through hands-on work and also invite open communication with the client in order to facilitate the most appropriate and beneficial work.
My intention is to support a nurturing and safe space for my client in their innate ability to feel well. Some of my modalities include integrative massage (a mind-body-spirit approach to wellness), Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, Thai, prenatal and postnatal, Lomi Lomi, hot stones, and reflexology. I often combine modalities to create the desired experience, whether it’s relaxing, nurturing, invigorating, or therapeutic.
