The massage therapists of Boulder Massage & NeuroMuscular Therapy possess different skills and backgrounds, but work toward a single goal: to relieve stress and chronic pain. Jason Summers specializes in treatment-oriented massage, while Zeona McIntyre excels in combining orthopedic work and Swedish massage. Lauren McWilliams also has a knack for rooting out pain, exercising her talents with myoskeletal therapy to gently realign the spine.
The practitioners respect each client's investment by devoting the entire session to massage, with time only deducted for undressing or sharing knock-knock jokes. Additionally, they support the community by volunteering at nonprofit organizations and hosting interns from local schools.
