     A native of Saint Paul, Minnesota, Bridget was attracted to foreign language learning as a way to expand her cultural horizons. While completing her Bachelor of Arts, she studied Spanish, Math, and numerous electives in Sports Science, earning honors as a collegiate athlete in soccer and track & field. During her final undergraduate years, she studied abroad in Segovia, Spain, where she met her husband, Elías, now a local mountain guide.



     Before becoming a licensed massage therapist, Bridget earned a Master's degree in the field of Education and spent over 15 years teaching, coordinating and leading international travel programs, translating, coaching, and working in the outdoor recreation and hospitality industries. She has traveled extensively throughout four different continents in pursuit of mountaineering objectives, social service opportunities, and immersion experiences.


     After struggling to find adequate healthcare as a beat-up female athlete living in a rural mountain town, Bridget became interested in bodywork out of the necessity to address her own physical needs in sustainable, non-invasive, non-toxic ways. In addition to her Western-Eastern bicultural massage program, she is trained in the practice of YogAlign, Reiki, Ashiatsu barefoot massage, Visceral Manipulation, Neural Manipulation, and Craniosacral techniques.


     All work that Bridget performs is very fluid and intended to reduce any anxiety to the greatest degree possible. Your unique session may blend any number of healing modalities, including Swedish style massage, myofascial release, Thai massage, deep tissue work, reflexology... But no need to anguish over choosing the right technique; Bridget is eager to educate her clients about their bodies and treatment options, customizing each session to achieve optimal results.


     Bridget's primary practice location is at the Ouray Hot Springs Pool. To schedule an appointment, visit The Colorado Kur's online booking link, the preferred method for checking the most up-to-date availability and reserving your session. You can also call Bridget's reservation request line at (970) 325-3255 or email bridget.bodywork@gmail.com. ¿Es usted hispanohablante? No se preocupe. ¡Ella es bilingüe!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Myra on Oct 17
Initially I got just a massage for my wife's birthday. After she finished her massage she talked me into get a quick 30 min massage. Bridget was incredibly professional and helpful towards troubled spots during massage for me. I remember the first 5 min and then felt so relaxed and comfortable that I fell asleep for the next 20 min. I woke up to the sounds of kids running outside the pool and she was still working on my back. Overall Bridget was incredible and we will come back to get a massage from her when we come back to Ouray.

Bridget’s knowledge of the human body and her insights on the mind - body connection are exceptional. I’ve had a lot of massages over the last 20+ years but this was the most amazing and helpful massage I’ve ever had. I would gladly use Bridget again at every opportunity.

Loved the location at the vase of towering San Juan mountains nestled into Ouray Hot Springs. Was planning to jump in the warm water afterward but they suddenly closed because of lightning.
