Owner / Licensed Massage Therapist

VIVIEN T.

Vivien was born & raised near Taipei, Taiwan.  She moved to Breckenridge, Colorado in 1996, where she met her future husband, Scott.  They have been married since 1997 and have two children. 

Vivien learned massage therapy through private instruction and has been associated with The Massage Store since 2006.  In 2008, Vivien and Scott decided to venture into the industry even more by purchasing The Massage Store from the previous owner.

Vivien's attitude, humor and personality are a major draw for many of the clients that come into the store on a regular basis.  She admits, though, that it is sometimes difficult overcoming stereotypes relating to her ethnicity and the massage profession.  But with a personal clientele of doctors, nurses, chiropractors, attorneys, law enforcement officers and others, anyone that knows Vivien knows how dedicated she is to her profession, her character and her integrity.

Vivien constantly strives to enhance her knowledge and skills by taking continuing education classes.  Recent classes include techniques on rotator cuff release, cranial sacral therapy, sciatica treatments and more.

Vivien says "Massage is not just a luxury, it is a necessity.  I encourage people to make the time for massage, not just to take care of their body, but also their mind.  Often people focus on other people's needs and not their own.  Relaxation and stress reduction through massage  lets you re-energize your mind, body and soul so you can maintain focus on other priorities in your life.  I enjoy being a part of that process for my clients.  No matter who they are, where they work or what they look like, the client that is on my table is my top priority."

LORA

Hi, I'm Lora, Professional Massage Therapist, Intuitive Healer and loving mother of 5 beautiful children. I was born in Missoula, Montana and raised in Delta County, Colorado.

I started my massage journey by attending the Utah College of Massage Therapy , graduating March 2004. I worked for myself for a few years in Delta. In June 2007 our family relocated to Nevada.  In 2009 I became Nationally Certified through the NCBTMB and became licensed in the state of Nevada where I continued my massage career at a prestigious spa at a local Resort. I found I really loved and thrived in the spa environments! Here I learned several new modalities including Rain Massage, Body Wraps, and Sugar/Salt Scrubs.

 

I moved back to Colorado, and in 2019, I decided to further my education and be what I am meant to be, a Massage Therapist .I enrolled into Intellitec College's Massage Program. I learned some exciting new techniques, including Hot Stone Massage, new discoveries in Anatomy, Pathology and Kinesiology. I graduated February 2020 after which I became licensed in the state of Colorado to practice massage therapy. I enjoy what I do, helping people feel more relaxed and less stressed is my goal.

JACKIE

Born in El Paso, Texas and raised in Mexico, I moved back to the USA in 2009 after I finished my Masters degree in the YMCA Mexico University. I am bilingual (Spanish and English).

 

I spent my first year in the USA living in Greeley, Colorado and that same year I got married to my boyfriend from Mexico. We then moved to Breckenridge, Colorado in 2010, where I worked for 5 years at a Resort in various hotels around the town in the mountain until my daughter was born. I loved the mountain life, the snow and the outdoors, but we were ready to experience another town and decided to move to Grand Junction.

 

While living in the valley I decided to go back to school and start my new journey as a Massage Therapist. I attended Essential Therapeutic Massage School in 2016, because ever since high school that was one of my interests. I wanted to pursue a career that I was passionate about and one where I could help people feel better. I believe in the energy and vibes we can transmit through our hands.

 

After I graduated and got my license I didn’t stop. I kept learning and adding more techniques to my practice. I learned WATSU, prenatal massage, Swedish massage, Hot stone, Craniosacral therapy in water, rapid tension relief or percussion therapy, medical massage, and K-Taping.

 

When I am massaging, I enjoy listening to my patient’s needs and I like to explain why I use certain techniques or movements. I like to help them to feel relaxed, pampered, and refreshed after their session.

MANDY

Hi, my name is Mandy. I’m a very proud Colorado native who grew up in Palisade attending kindergarten through my senior year there. I have very fond memories of my childhood and teen years there. I’ve spent the majority of my life in Grand Junction and love what it and the surrounding areas have to offer. I did spend spend some years away in Nevada where I was fortunate to become a licensed massage therapist which is now my life passion! I recently moved back home and want to replant my feet and share my love of massage.

 

I began receiving massage in my late 20’s which is when I discovered the healing powers of it. I suffered greatly from anxiety and panic attacks that caused a mile long list of other problems and ailments. I was referred to an amazing massage therapist here who changed my life one hour at a time. She taught me to breathe, live in the moment, relax and take control of the constant anxiety that lived in my mind and body. To this day I credit her for changing my life because she created a safe and nurturing space that allowed me to heal and grow.

 

To know that I am able to help people feel better, relax and reduce pain and anxiety is deeply fulfilling. I go home at night knowing what I provide makes a difference and I wake up each morning wanting to do that over and over. Hop on my schedule, I’d love to meet you!
