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.
Rick Steele has an MA in Counseling Psychology and an LPC, but his best qualification for being a counselor may just be his compassion. Using this combination of empathy and social-science expertise, he helps individuals overcome personal obstacles and teaches couples and families how to resolve issues in their relationships. During his sessions, he leans heavily on the approach known as "depth psychology," which emphasizes the unconscious motivations that lead to our behavior.

In order to tailor your massage to your needs, the experienced staff at Helping Hands Chiropractic—which includes two Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Heather Meinke and Dr. Nicholas Smith—will begin by examining your posture from front to back and side to side. As they do, they'll seek out structural imbalances by comparing the body's landmarks, then take pictures of themselves jumping in front of those landmarks before making the necessary adjustments. They'll also analyze and interpret your responses to a detailed health questionnaire, breaking down the cause of your symptoms into easily understood layman lingo. Once they've pinpointed your pain points, you'll be free to choose between a restorative, stress-freeing massage or a reflexology session—an alternative practice that involves applying pressure to particular parts of the feet that correlate with other specific body parts. Reflexology can be used to help heal internal organs, muscles, and heads that have overdosed on ice cream. Both treatments take 30 minutes and are administered by a licensed massage therapist. The postural exam and questionnaire analysis take about an hour. All services must be redeemed in one visit.
