Larken’s main goal is to provide therapeutic relaxation by developing a customized plan for each client. She will work with individual needs and her knowledge of an assortment of therapeutic techniques to bring about a state of physical, mental and social well-being.

Larken’s passion for full body wellness started while in high school. Because of a repetition injury from competitive swimming she started seeing a chiropractor weekly. When this did not improve her problem, she found and fell in love with massage therapy, which helped her continue her swimming. An interest in the human body and wellness continued at the University of Connecticut where she graduated in 2011 with studies in kinesiology, psychology, and health science.

After college, Larken moved to Colorado to enjoy the mountains and be outside daily with her puppy. During this time she found her previous experience, health focused education plus a passion to work with people was pointing her to massage therapy. She graduated from the Colorado School of Healing Arts in 2015 with an AOS in Massage Therapy with certification in lymphatic drainage, sports massage and reflexology. Since that time Larken has become a Reiki 3 practitioner and studied Thai massage therapy with Rob Martin. Recently she also became a certified ashiatsu therapist with DeepFeet Therapy. 

While starting a successful massage career Larken was having trouble putting her face out there. Having bad skin was a bit of a confidence hit. She really started to learn more about skin hair from the inside out. While working as a massage instructor she found out about the School of Botanical and Medical Aesthetics and fell in love with the skin care industry. Larken graduated and was licensed in aesthetics in 2019. She is very excited to share her passion with others.

I have been a regular client of Larken’s for over 4 years. She is the best. I’m super picky and I demand a very strong therapist with lots of bells and whistles. She checks all the boxes and always exceeds my expectations. She recently started doing my facials and my skin looks better than it has in years.

I’ve known Larken for a few years now and all I can say is that she is amazing at what she does! She listens to client’s requests and is catering to what the client needs. I had been dealing with a pain in my upper back for weeks, after her massage the pain was completely gone. I would recommend Larken to anyone who loves getting quality bodywork!

This massage was just what I needed after having a baby a month ago. Larken listens to your concerns and focuses on problem areas to give you relief.

I've been getting massages for over 25 years, and this one was, by far, the best massage I've ever had. Larken was a pro with her hands and found different areas in my body that needed to be worked on. She was thorough with great pressure. I felt safe and the room was super clean. I will definitely be back!

Larken is so attentive, kind and simply fun! I would recommend her to anyone. I have titanium rods in my back from a scoliosis surgery and massage therapy is the only thing that helps with the pain. Larken is very open to feedback and has helped me tremendously. Book with her NOW!
