COVID-19 Reopening Update:
Our Governor is allowing non-essential personal services to re-open soon, with strict precautions. Massage Therapists are sometimes included in this category, but we also saw in the same press release that spas will remain closed. We are waiting to hear from the Health Department and our professional associations as to when it will be safe to re-open and what precautions we need to take.
While Amber, Stephanie and I greatly miss working with all of you, we have decided that it is unsafe to come back to work right now. We are looking at re-opening in June at the soonest, but we will be re-evaluating closer to that time.
We will have to invest in protective supplies and create new safety protocols. And many items that we need are currently out of stock.
Thank you for your patience. We would love for all of this to end soon so that we can go back to normal, but it seems like we will have to get used to a new normal to keep everyone safe.
We wish all the best to you and your loved ones during this time.

Meet Our Licensed Massage Therapists
Jessika Mankin, LMT
I have 14 years of experience as a licensed massage therapist. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help people feel better every day.
My bodywork style is different from other massage therapists in the area. I have over 1000 hours of massage therapy training from the Texas Healing Arts Institute in Austin and the International Professional School of Bodywork in San Diego.
I completed yoga teacher training in 2014 and I've taken many additional holistic health classes locally. This continuing education helps me to create therapeutic massages that relieve pain, reduce stress and help to enhance your overall body awareness.
My sessions blend a relaxing circulatory massage with deep tissue massage, Asian bodywork, gentle stretching and many additional massage techniques. I often include energy work during massage sessions to assist in healing on all levels. And the massage cream I use is organic and locally made.
Amber MacDonald, LMT
I am an Practitioner of Arvigo Maya Abdominal Therapy and a Licensed Massage Therapist. I received training in Swedish, neuromuscular, deep tissue and hot stone massage.
Before receiving Maya Abdominal Therapy I had medical conditions that were preventing me from having a normal life. Arvigo Therapy improved my life in so many wonderful ways that I knew I had share this form of healing with the world. After receiving Mayan Abdominal Therapy myself for five years, I decided to obtain a certification for this incredible modality.
Arvigo Therapy is an external, non-invasive, abdominally focused form of massage that repositions internal organs to achieve unrestricted flow of blood, lymph, nerve, and chi. Arvigo is great for helping with digestive and reproductive health in both men and women.
I like to use multiple modalities in my massage sessions to help my clients feeling deeply relaxed and balanced. I feel blessed to be given the opportunity to have learned these techniques and to be able to share them with as many people as I can. I am a native to Colorado and enjoy all things outdoors! My favorite thing to do though is spending time with my husband and my two dogs.
Stephanie Herndon, LMT
Raised on the front range, I have a deep love and respect for the outdoors and the active lifestyle that Colorado brings. It was this passion for life and wellness that brought me to massage. I have been a practicing massage therapist for 6 years. My unique touch is a blend of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial, Asian Bodywork, and Energy Work.
I have worked with a variety of orthopedic issues including replacements, herniated discs, pre/post op management, etc. Your pain and discomfort motivates me to help you to live your fullest life. I have a passion for helping all walks of life and massage is a truly unique way to heal the mind, body, and spirit; allowing for a deeper embrace of this world.
When I’m not healing, I spend my time enjoying the outdoors with my son and numerous dogs, going to live music, and getting my feet soaked in the earth.
Come in and relax on a generously padded, heated massage table with comfortable sheets and relaxing music.
After your massage, we may provide additional information on stretching, nutrition or pain prevention to help empower you in your healing process.
