And so, she provides rehabilitating bodywork that addresses these concerns in a natural and holistically balanced way. In addition to employing deep-tissue pressure, trigger point therapy, and neuromuscular techniques to help correct specific injuries, she also uses reiki to promote relaxation and self-healing. This combined focus on her clients' physical and emotional well-being—complete with nutritional and fitness guidance—allows Stacey to relieve the stress that can otherwise leave them feeling as drained as the AAA battery that powers the sun.

At Rocky Mountain Roots Community Health, the staff fully embraces the philosophy that improving well-being requires a holistic approach to address mental, physical, and emotional concerns. As such, they offer a wide range of traditional as well as alternative therapy options so that clients can select a treatment path that corresponds with their needs. For example, acupuncture sessions in a semi-private community room attempt to jump-start the body's natural healing processes by correcting imbalances in the flow of a person's natural energies. Massage therapists focus on the tightly knotted muscles that can cause chronic aches and pains, employing flowing Swedish strokes, focused deep-tissue pressure, and neuromuscular therapy. Additionally, Rocky Mountain Roots Community Health enlists the help of modern medspa technology designed to help people feel more confident in their appearances. These systems include body-contouring ultrasonic cavitation technology as well as a device that uses radio-frequency energy to stimulate collagen production, improve skin tone and texture, and entertain lymph nodes with Top 40 hits.
Tanya Hauck is a licensed massage therapist, master Reiki practitioner, and certified Reiki master teacher. At Therapeutic Healing Massage, Tanya strives to provide each client with healing treatments tailored to meet their needs, which she assesses in two ways. The first is by conducting an initial interview to gain insight into her clients’ histories, needs, and goals. Tanya specializes in intuitive massage, an approach that entails reading musculature and posture in order to discover the roots of discomfort and figure out which funny bone is stealing jokes. Tanya offers Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, and hot stone massages. Hydrating and detoxifying body wraps are also available, as are spa packages inspired by the earthly elements: earth, wind, water, and firemen.
