About Us and the Practitioners
GROUNDED MASSAGE Plus
A former fire department volunteer, EMT student, family caregiver, and nurse’s aide, Angela has followed her calling to ease the pain of others. With a keen interest in physical therapy and the desire to engage with clients, massage therapy became her perfect pursuit. As the owner of Grounded Massage Plus, Angela has built a team that shares her vision of achieving transformative healing.
Angela’s philosophy is simple: focus on the root cause of the problem to address its physical manifestations. Rather than taking the more traditional approach to managing pain, Angela believes in the body’s potential to overcome pain and to heal. Her methodology includes movement, nutrition and changing the pervasive mindset of relying on medication to treat aches and pains.
Angela’s specialties include Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, Functional Neurology, Structural Integration, Intra Oral Massage and Swedish Massage. Her goal is to improve her clients’ quality of life by applying modalities that facilitate changes in their bodies and promote awareness of the integral body/mind connection.
Angela’s professional credentials include being a Licensed Massage Therapist, and Diplomate of the American Functional Neurology Society. She also enjoyed six years of teaching student therapists at the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado.
“We’re re-teaching people about what massage can do. It’s not a luxury, not just to relax. Massage is regenerative and healing. We want to help people move around the world, get reconnected to their bodies, and enjoy life!”
