"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

What Can You Expect?
will receive the time you pay for in actual massage time, on the
table. Your first appointment will take about 15 minutes longer in
order to fill out paperwork, get acquainted, etc. It's always helpful
if you can arrive a few minutes early so that we can try to start your
massage on time. If you arrive late to your appointment, you will receive a shorter massage session, and are expected to pay for the full session time. This enables me to stay on-time and honor each person's appointment time.
will do my best to make sure you are comfortable throughout your
session, and I promote open communication so that I can best meet your
needs and address any concerns you may have. I give you the option of experiencing essential oils for aromatherapy relaxation as well as topically for muscle relief, have a heating pad and rice bags for added warmth, quench your thirst with refreshing peppermint water, and have additional tricks and tools to provide you with a high-quality massage therapy session.
Homework: I will provide you with ideas of stretches, exercises, and practices that you can incorporate regularly in your daily life in order to maximize the benefits of your massage therapy sessions to reach your health and wellness goals. If you do your homework, you feel better faster, and it is longer lasting!
Referrals: I will recommend combining massage therapy with other forms of treatment/care if that seems necessary for what you are experiencing. If it seems like I am not the therapist for you, I will refer you out to someone who seems more fitting to your needs as there are many high-quality practitioners in our valley.
If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, 24 hours advance
notice is much appreciated. Any appointment not canceled within this
time frame will be charged in full.
Payment: Cash and local checks preferred, and credit cards accepted.

"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 missed. ENJOY!" -Eliza Glenwood Springs, CO
