Massage therapy is a valuable and important way to take care of yourself on a regular basis. I notice the best results from clients who decide to prioritize pro-active self-care, and who come in for regular massage therapy treatments 1-2 times per month (or more frequently depending on their individual needs and circumstance). Massage therapy helps not only with releasing muscle pain and tension, but with injury prevention and recovery, and as a support prior to and post surgery. Massage therapy is huge for helping with stress relief, calming the nervous system, and taking time out to nourish yourself. You can be more present, grounded, and a better support to those around you when you are taking care of yourself and doing so regularly. (This is why I offer punchcards and a Loyalty Membership Program at Skin to Soul...to make it easier for you to prioritize regular self-care). I also have the ability to bill for work-comp and auto accident claims when massage therapy is a part of the treatment plan so keep that in mind.
"There are a lot of qualities I think are important in a massage therapist. Alana has them all - technical skill enhanced by intuitive technique; clean, calming,and restorative personal demeanor and professional space; and a genuine interest in your well being. I love thinking about seeing her almost as much as actually seeing her." -Susan Rhea, Glenwood Springs, CO
Self-Care and Wellness Coaching
(It's Life. One is not separate from the other. It's all connected).
Self-care and wellness coaching is something you receive in small doses when you come in for a massage therapy treatment, or when you come to a yoga class. I take the extra time to make sure you are aware of simple, do-able steps that you can implement in your regular life to take care of yourself, decrease stress, and create healthy habits. They can make a huge difference when you actually do them! If you are ready to more deeply explore what it's like to create positive changes in your life and to establish healthy habits of self-care and wellness, please contact 970-618-8334 to schedule a free 15 minute clarity call. Once we know that this is something you would like to pursue, I can develop a customized coaching package to best meet your individual needs.
If your workplace is interested in incorporating yoga into an on-site employee benefit (and there is a space for a class) or if you would like to create a personal yoga party or gathering, or to schedule a private yoga session, call 970-618-8334 to explore what's possible as I would be psyched to create a class, workshop, etc. to meet your needs and desires. I have been a dedicated yogi for 20 years and have a 200 hour Integrative Yoga Therapy Certification through True Nature Healing Arts in Carbondale, Colorado.
"After several years away from yoga, I decided to take advantage of a class that Alana was offering at the library. I feel so fortunate to have experienced her expertise and skill. Alana’s instruction and guidance, focusing on breath and mindfulness, presented a new level of understanding of the body-mind connection. Apparent was her kindness and patience as she demonstrated moves and stressed the importance of honoring where our bodies were at the time. I am so thankful to her for sharing her time and talent. She is amazing!" -Carol Schreiner, Glenwood Springs, CO
Self-Care and Wellness Retreats, Workshops, and Empowerment Programs
If your workplace, a group you are involved in, or if you individually would like to offer a workshop or retreat centered around yoga, massage, self-care, wellness, connection to self and others, and/or creative empowerment, please call 970-618-8334 to explore this further. I have much to offer in this way and am skilled at identifying what's possible in creating a high-value program to meet your needs. I have over 15 years of experience in leadership, group dynamics, team building, and facilitation, and have a passion for developing opportunities to create community and connection. I co-created, led, and facilitated a women’s empowerment circle for 3 years, and have created and led successful, empowering, and fun day-long and weekend retreats.
“Alana is a wonderful and fearless leader, and comes up with creative, fun, and meaningful activities that encourage us to explore who we are and what we want out of life, and whether or not we are on the right path to manifest what we desire. I look forward to the group each month, and feel more joyful, empowered, and passionate about life at the end of each session." -M. Cruz-Herrera, GWS, CO

"In 2016 I went on my first trip to Africa. I was hesitant and excited about doing a trip that I had never dreamed that I would feel comfortable taking and planning on my own. Alana was a great source of knowledge and made me feel confidant about traveling for nearly 2 weeks along Kenya's coast. Her zeal for discovering a place for what it really is and connecting with local people along the way made the trip. On all trips that I have taken with Alana, she is wonderful at creating that fine balance between exploration and relaxing that is so hard to do on your own when you want to see everything! Thinking that you want to do something awesome, but need help making it a reality? Alana is your lady." -V. Gilbert, Carbondale, CO

"I have had the great pleasure of
seeing Alana regularly for massage for several years and her careful
attention to my needs and her healing touch have helped to keep my back
and shoulders healthy. Her massage technique provides a truly relaxing
and also very therapeutic experience. I gave my daughter one of Alana’s
massages as a gift and she agreed with me; it was the very best and
most wonderful massage she had ever had!!! Definitely, not to be
-Eliza F., Glenwood Springs, CO
"I have gained from my therapeutic experiences with Alana M. For over a year, I have received regular massages from Alana and more recently I have taken yoga classes with her. Her expertise as a massage therapist brings a unique and refreshing perspective to her yoga instruction. She offers a comforting, encouraging atmosphere and a commanding presence. As a life-long yoga practitioner, I found her yoga classes to be very relaxing, healing and helpful. I always look forward to enjoying her services!" -A. Mathesius, Carbondale, CO
"I was having upper back and posture issues from years of sitting at a computer. By attending Alana's wonderful yoga classes, I found great physical relief as well as stress reduction. My posture seemed to improve naturally and I felt like the tight back muscles were being gently stretched & oxygenated with every pose. Alana has developed a gentle, calming approach in her classes coupled with strengthening poses. As she eases me into every pose, I hardly realize I'm getting stronger too. I really appreciate her nurturing touch along with the essential oils that she incorporates into her classes. As a holistic practitioner, I highly encourage anyone to indulge in Alana's remarkable yoga classes."-Donna Lee Humble, Glenwood Springs, CO, International Lifestyle & Wellness Coach, BioEnergetic Technician
"In 2016 I traveled with Alana Monge to Kenya, Africa. She inspired the trip and encouraged me to travel with her. As we began planning the trip it was clear that she is very organized and has had many travel experiences around the world that allow her to anticipate what we might have encountered while in Kenya. She did an excellent job setting up contacts in Kenya, which allowed us to have an incredible trip. Alana knows the ins and outs of travel, and I would recommend her to plan a trip for anyone. Your trip/vacation will surely be a well thought out itinerary with special attention to detail." -M. Kasper, Carbondale, CO
