My name is Erin and I’ve been a Licensed Massage Therapist for the past 17 years. I’m from Iowa originally and graduated from Carlson College of Massage Therapy in Anamosa, IA in 2003. I have a degree in Physical Education with an emphasis in personal training from the University of Northern Iowa and I’m a former ACSM Personal Trainer.
I’ve practiced in a variety of environments from the medical side (Chiropractic and Acupuncture), to the more pampering spa-type facilities, and have enjoyed the challenges that each environment brings. I specialize in Massage Cupping, which targets the fascia of the body and helps to realign posture, and Hot Bamboo Fusion, which I generally incorporate into each massage session. I’m also a former Thai Yoga Bodyworker so I’m well versed in stretch therapy and often include this where applicable as well. Lastly, I have recently certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage, which aids in detoxifying the body, recovering from workouts and illness, etc., and I feel with this addition that I can truly tailor each massage to the needs of my clients.
I love the challenge that Massage Therapy brings; finding the source of tension/pain and manipulating the body’s tissues to improve clients’ quality of life and promote relaxation.
Outside of work, I love to hike, trail run, do yoga, snowboard and relax at home with my husband, Chris, and our two crazy cats. My motto is “never waste a sunny day” so I’m generally outside basking in the beauty of Colorado whenever I have the chance. I look forward to helping you achieve your body’s “best”!
Yours in Health,
Erin Mader, B.A., L.M.T., C.M.L.D.T
