Licensed Massage Therapist
Yves's interests in the healing arts and the mind-body relationship were sparked after several years of devoted Yoga study. The exploration of movement with breath, meditation, and wellness allowed for a discovery of self-love and satisfaction that had previously seemed beyond reach. With a desire to further understand natural healing and compassionate self-care Yves began studies in Massage Therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Yves's studies at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City led her to refine her interests and develop the techniques she currently applies to her therapeutic approach. As a licensed practitioner Yves integrates modalities such as Thai Yoga massage, sports massage, & myofascial deep tissue.
Yves's additional training includes pre & post-natal massage, yoga therapy and is trained to instruct parents in infant massage. Shortly after becoming an LMT, Yves began training to become a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher. She continues to explore the profound and infinite rewards of natural wellness through the practices of Yoga and meditation, running, hiking, rock climbing and receiving massage and bodywork treatments regularly. Her favorite movement practice is Yin Yoga, and her favorite massage treatment is myofascial release.

Amy has been a massage therapist since 1993 and an esthetician since 2009. Through both modern and holistic massage and skin care, she lives her passion by helping her clients find true health and well-being. Her intuitive therapeutic massage is both deeply relaxing and healing.
Amy grew up in Florida and moved to Colorado in 1993, searching for adventure. She called Steamboat Springs home for nearly 25 years and recently returned to Florida to be closer to the beaches and family. Amy’s specialties include:
Ashiatsu Deepfeet Bar Therapy – www.deepfeet.com A barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight. Working with gravity instead of against it, Ashiatsu therapists are able to provide an effective therapeutic massage without causing pain or discomfort to themselves or the receiving client.
Mayan Abdominal Therapy – www.ArvigoTherapy.com Founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage which is an external non-invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted, thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® address position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. The work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus and almost every other uterine condition and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men, and for relief of many common digestive disorders.
Pre and Perinatal Massage - Expecting a baby is usually joyful, but- to be honest- it is also stressful and can be uncomfortable. Prenatal massage therapy uses techniques designed specifically to address pregnancy’s challenges. Several research studies suggest that pregnancy massage may help to:
After giving birth, massage therapy can help abdominal recovery; reduce the strain of baby care on mom’s body; support satisfying breastfeeding; and nurture mom and her family. Moms who are massaged tend to more quickly and fully touch their babies in loving, nurturing ways, and that leads to a more peaceful world for us all.
Aromatherapy - Also referred to as Essential Oil therapy, aromatherapy is the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process.

massage | Yoga
John Allen's integrally-informed wellness practice combines treatment protocols from Thai yoga massage, neuromuscular and myofascial therapies, Amazonian herbalism, and ayurveda. He specializes in the shamanic applications of bodywork and manual therapies as tools for the release of trauma, conditioning, and the transformation of emotional and behavioral patterns.
John-Allen grew up in rural Pennsylvania where began his study of yoga and mysticism at the age of 11. He was initially inspired after observing his neighbor and childhood friend’s elderly Indian grandfather practicing hathayoga exercise every morning. The same neighbor introduced him to the rich folklore and mythology of South Asia through illustrated english-language children’s editions of the Ramayana and Mahabharata. At age 18 John-Allen moved to Pittsburgh were he began his study of filmmaking, as well as the formal study of Ashtanga yoga. In Pittsburgh he met his first mentor, Ani Drubgyudma, a forest-hermit yogini in the Tibetan tradition, and formed a lifelong bond. Under her tutelage he first engendered an appreciation for a life of contemplation and the value of periods of solitude in the wilderness. Through Ani, he was also introduced to his root teacher Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoche, who is a renowned Tibetan scholar and yogi in the Drikung Kagyu lineage.
After pursuing a lively career in the fine arts, John-Allen returned to his primary interests and dedicated himself to teaching yoga, while pursuing his studies under the guidance of his teachers. At this time he became a licensed bodyworker and also began organizing pilgrimages and trekking expeditions to Nepal. Realizing that he had an intellectual grasp of the traditions, but still had little experiential understanding, he sought to deepen his study and practice through encountering new teachers and techniques that could penetrate to the core of spiritual meaning. He is currently an apprentice and assistant to Dionisio Santos and Aubrey Bamdad, the founders of Yacumaman Sanctuary for Integral Shamanism in Tarapoto, Peru. John-Allen believes that yoga is a evolutionary technology for cultivating greater authenticity through a deeper understanding our own humanity. It is his mission to share the practices of yoga, shamanism, and bodywork as an integral path to open our hearts to our highest potential as compassionate wisdom-beings in the world. John Allen has recently returned from a two year shamanic apprenticeship in Tarapoto, Peru and is integrating his studies of yoga and bodywork with the practices and techniques of Integral Shamanism, Amazonian vegetalismo, and Ayurveda under the tutelage of Dionisio Santos and Aubrey Bamdad.
