Derek Rudolph CMT.

Derek Rudolph is a manual therapist who specializes in Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular (Trigger Point), and Deep Tissue massage. Whether you need help with chronic aches and pains or you just need to relax, Derek strives to provide the best quality service tailored to each client and patient's needs and wants.

In 2011, Derek suffered a shoulder injury while working at a large natural grocery chain. Deciding to pursue manual therapy to help find relief and recovery from the injury, Derek discovered for himself various modalities of manual therapy including Rolfing, myofascial release, deep tissue massage, and neuromuscular therapy which were instrumental for him finding quality and lasting improvement. In early 2013 Derek Rudolph graduated from the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado, which specializes in a advanced form of massage tailored toward injuries, poor posture, and chronic pain. Derek's journey for self healing has engendered a passion for helping resolve musculoskeletal and myofascial pain patterns for all his clients who find themselves with a reduced quality of life due to aches, pains, and stress.

Derek is continuously researching to further his advance his understanding and approach toward soft tissue therapies and has an long term goal of writing a book to help make a small contribution to the field of manual therapy.

Raised in Richmond, VA, it was there that Derek and Lorraine Glenn met, while she was working on her bachelors degree. Later the two relocated to Denver, CO to attend school. In 2015, Lorraine and Derek returned to Virginia and to Lorraine's home town of Floyd, VA.

Derek's knowledge and skill level are top notch. As a massage therapist myself, he is my go-to for regular bodywork to keep me pain free and in good working order.

The music Derek used was pleasant, as well as the aromatherapy oil I chose from his selection. He's skilled at what he does and I'm hurting less because of it. And will definitely be going back!
