Alina Bals : LMT/OWNER
A glimpse at the soul behind the hands:
A 2011 graduate with an associate of occupational studies degree in therapeutic massage; I eagerly set out to heal one client at a time. Early on I noticed that my gift was not only in releasing tension in muscles but in releasing tension in the spirit. An energy within me that allowed my hands to heat with a magnetic force. Later to learn this was Qi. Qi literally translates as "breath", and "life force" or sometimes in pop culture as "the force". With Qi, i am able to use the power i have pooled into my hands to re-energize damaged muscles and areas of the body that feel weak or stressed.
Each client is unique and I take time to listen to everyone's individual needs to give them the best massage possible. I work with your specific requests with all of my energy/qi concentrated on bestowing harmony and therapeutic healing to the mind, body, and soul.

Zalina Montoya-Baca: LMT
Upon graduating Green Mountain High School, I decided to explore before going to school. After a few years of traveling, as cliche as its sounds, I "found myself" while traveling in Central America. I realized that my personal success was going to be gained by doing what I love and and following my passions. This is when I dove into bodywork in Boulder. I received an education at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy, and became a certified massage therapist.
Although I graduated the certificate program, I needed more so I decided to further my education with a degree in Occupational Studies. This granted me the opportunity to advance into Quantum Cranial, Clinical Massage, Lymphatic Draining, Visceral Manipulation, and Spa Therapy.
After a few years in the spa industry, I gained experience working with aromatherapy, herbs, skin care, wraps, scrubs, and relaxation therapies, although my passion lies in deep clinical work. I have also worked with many age-group athletes, and have been granted the opportunity to work with many professional athletes and their traveling teams.
Coming from an athletic background, I have gained the importance of a well-rounded life from a young age. My roots are planted in ancient medicine, philosophy and therapy. I am invested in the health of my patients by implementing a variety of treatments into one session. By integrating modern healthcare with ancient treatments, I practice both Eastern and Western modalities.
Each session can be combined to custom fit what's best for each patient. Designing every session individually, as to what is best for their long-term health is my first priority. I believe that with self-awareness and self-care, along with a healthy support system, wellness can be achieved on all levels----physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
I love being a licensed massage therapist because, I get to help people feel better internally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Marilyn Loudon LMT:
Hello! My name is Marilyn and I've been helping others through massage for a little over six years. I went into the practice to help others feel amazing about themselves and I fell in love after my first step into alternative therapy.
I have a range of techniques I have learned that I have slowly incorporated into my routines as a Therapeutic Therapist. I have a medium to firm approach that ensures comfort for my patients. The modalities I enjoy are Reflexology and Sports, but I do enjoy bringing over all relaxation and pain relief to those in need.
Lequicha Wilder LMT:
Jessica Martin LMT:
I've been a licensed massage therapist for over 5 years now with experience with all different body types and personalities. The reason I massage is because there are things wrong with people that can't be fixed by any other means. I am able to provide a calming swedish massage, deep tissue and sports massages... but in all actuality i combine those to what each of my clients need since everyone is different. You'll find i'm an honest and relaxing person who just really wants to help everyone I can.
Shannon McNamee LMT
"Hi! My name is Shannon. Although I am fairly new to massage, I bring a tremendous amount of passion and energy to my work. After being in the insurance industry for almost 10 years, I was ready for a change. I wanted to work in a field that allowed me to help others and continue to grow as an individual. Massage allows me to do that and so much more. When I first started to see the positive impact I was having on my earliest clients I knew that I was in the right field. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the immediate results of your work whether they are physical, emotional, spiritual or otherwise. Massage touches us on so many levels, and to be part of a person’s healing experience is a true honor.
I graduated in 2017 from the European Massage Therapy School in Las Vegas, NV. I was trained in many different modalities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Hot Stone, Aromatherapy, Body Mobilization, PNF Stretching, Trigger Point, Reflexology, etc. I also have extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and certain pathologies which aids in assessing my clients’ individual needs. My aim is to help you relax, ease your tension, relieve your pain, and help you escape from the daily grind!"

Khalilah Shabazz LMT:
I love being a massage therapist because I like to be in a relaxed state as often as life allows me to be; I love when I give a massage to transfer that good positive relaxing energy from me to my client I am always in a relaxed state when I give a massage. Even if I wasn't in a relaxed state before I began just getting into the flow of the relaxing music and oils while giving the massage helps me relax along with my client.
