Do something every day that your future self will thank you for.

Originally from Portland, Oregon, I moved to Fort Collins in 1995. When I'm not in the studio, I'm often knitting, reading, hiking/trail running, happily playing bad guitar, working in my mountain garden, or spending time with my almost grown kids.

Originally from Portland, Oregon, I moved to Fort Collins in 1995. When I'm not in the studio, I'm often knitting, reading, hiking/trail running, happily playing bad guitar, working in my mountain garden, or spending time with my almost grown kids.

Having benefited greatly from massage myself, I entered the field in 2005 with a Neuromuscular Massage certification, with the goal of helping others improve the way their bodies function. I've since helped people successfully recover from auto accidents, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder, knee, hip, and foot surgeries, and overcome anxiety and other stress-related symptoms.
In 2008 I received certification as a Yoga teacher with a therapeutic Viniyoga focus, which changed my work to include more movement. In 2016 I completed a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, which brought more presence to my practice and enabled me to lead Mindfulness trainings (usually yearly). In 2020 I became certified in Ayurveda and also began study with local PT Gil Wette, both of which have further shifted my work.
My bodywork sessions typically include a combination of nervous system balancing, neuromuscular movement work, and myofascial release, with a little craniosacral thrown in on occasion. 
During my Ayurvedic consults, we work together to find your native constitution, determine where you're out of balance, and find diet and lifestyle choices that will both help bring you back to balance and support a healthy body, mind, and spirit for life.
I look forward to working with you!

She's just great, all around! I would say this every time, so I won't be reviewing her on this site more than this one. Hi, Shannon!

Shannon tailors the massage specific to my needs. In addition to being the BEST at her work, she has given me many tips for exercises that help me with my problem areas. Thank you Shannon!

Shannon knows my body and my goals. While she sometimes suggests a relaxing massage (because she can tell when that's what I need), she's always looking to get me more comfortable through very targeted massages. I always come out feeling better. I've been seeing Shannon for over 15 years and hope to continue for a long, long time!
