Massage Therapist in Parker Colorado

Shirley has gained an excellent reputation in Parker, is referred to by chiropractors and health care professionals and after being located in Olde Town Parker for over fifteen years, has now moved into the beautiful iThrive Yoga facility conveniently located on ground level on Parker Road.

Her reputation for being able to work deeply and specifically has enabled her to help athletes and those suffering from pain due to injury or repetitive motion, but she also loves working with those who prefer a light touch and are purely seeking stress reduction.  She blends techniques striving to create a fluid experience that is healing and relaxing.

She continues to study massage techniques and also study in areas that may help her clients become more aware of how they can develop habits to improve their overall sense of well being.   This may include posture,  increased range of motion and decreased stress.  Massage therapy  is very individual.  While many people just want a good massage without any information or interaction,  others are willing to be active participants by doing isometric contractions, stretching and welcome exercises and information that will benefit them.

Because understanding relaxation and awareness has always been so important for her to be able to be present for her clients and in life, meditation is a big part of her life.  She facilitates two “sitting groups” weekly at the iThrive Yoga Studio that are free to the community.  Please feel free to join us, also as a meet up group called  iThrive Yoga Meditation.  Please read my newsletters if this interests you.
