Owner / Licensed Massage Therapist
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."
Licensed Massage Therapist
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.
Licensed Massage Therapist
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I am a recent transplant to Grand Junction by way of Las Vegas.
I originally attended school at the Aveda Institute to become an Esthetician. I enjoyed learning the holistic side of skincare and worked in the field for two years before deciding that I needed to learn more.
I went back to back to school, attending the Massage Therapy course at Northwest Career College, graduating in 2019. During school I had trouble with chronic pain and chronic fatigue which influenced how I worked on clients.
Today, I love to work with people, especially those who have similar afflictions. I understand how bad pain can be and how much massage can work to help those experiencing similar things.
