Shawn Hadley is an awareness based manual therapist. He graduated from the Colorado School of Healing Arts in 2006 and studied for his yoga teaching credentials abroad in India later that year. Shortly after, in 2008, he studied for his meditation teaching credentials in Kriya Yoga Meditation at the Expanding Light Institute in California. In 2010 Shawn moved to Aspen, Colorado where he began his study of Active Release Techniques® and focused on working with athletes, repetitive motion injuries, and rehabilitation. Most recently Shawn has relocated to Sedona, Arizona and redefining his manual therapy approach in treating strain patterns and trauma using Myofascial Release studying extensively the last few years with John Barnes. He is also redefining his approach in treating clients through awareness-based mindfulness and movement practices to better serve his clients ability to find ease and flow in everyday life and simply living. 


Shawn has been actively involved in athletics for more than 40 years, for which bodywork has had a profound impact on. He was originally introduced to massage as a tool for athletic recovery as a cyclist when he competed as a professional mountain bike and road athlete for Cannondale and Trek while living in Lake Tahoe, California and Aspen, Colorado.  During that time, he had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented massage therapists in the nation’s cycling community, which left a lasting impression on his work. In addition to the role bodywork has played in his athletic endeavors, it has played an equally profound role in his spiritual and emotional transformation and growth, all of which has inspired and led him to pursue his bliss and share his practice with his clients.


Shawn uses a variety of modalities, integrating his expertise in Myofascial Release, Active Release Techniques, Neuromuscular Therapy, Muscle Energy Techniques, Yoga, Meditation, Movement and other bodywork modalities to best suit his client’s needs. He enjoys being a part of, and is dedicated to, the optimal wellness, healing and human potential of each and every client. If you are looking to improve your sense well-being, optimize your performance, discover ease in your daily grind, find relief from your active lifestyle, overcome a nagging injury, or simply looking for some great bodywork, Shawn is your ticket.


Shawn continues to avidly enjoy cycling, surfing, telemark skiing, snowboarding, golf, hiking, climbing, photography, meditation, yoga, traveling, cooking, art, music and movement.
