Want to Learn Reiki?
Reiki is easy to learn, anyone can do it. Once you have it, its with you for life. Most people use it to heal themselves, family, friends, pets, and clients. Reiki can be channeled for any situation, making the benefits and uses endless. Receiving Reiki is extremely relaxing, promotes a sense of peace, calm and overall wellbeing. It can help those with anxiety, insomnia, stress, pain, depression, grief, and over thinking. Brings in happiness, inspiration, joy and comfort. It also works well with conventional medicine 
Become a Level 1 & 2 Reiki Practitioner:
Embark on a two day intensive workshop to enhance your personal and spiritual development with Reiki Healing. On the first day you will learn Level I; the history of Reiki, hand positions, techniques, how to detect what areas need Reiki healing, clearing ones energy field, and hands on practice. On the second day you will learn the Level II symbols- what they are and how to use them, how to send distance healing, techniques to heal unwanted habits as well as more hands on practice through both giving and receiving! Each day will include it’s respective attunement. After the full two days you will be a Certified Level II Reiki Practitioner! 

What is a Reiki attunement? 
Receiving an attunement, is a simple yet sacred process. The attunement activates the Universal energy source that is Reiki, prepares you as a conduit for sending Reiki and allows its energy to flow. Once this energy is activated it is an invaluable tool for you to carry with you through the rest of your life. 
Each level of Reiki (I, II, advanced and Master Teacher)  has its own attunement which deepens and strengthens the Universal energy that has been activated in your Crown chakra, palm chakras and aura (energy field). The symbols learned in level II and beyond may be used for targeted purposes: such as mental/emotional healing, distance healing, abundance, creativity and “power” charged energy. As you become more connected to your Reiki practice you may experience a deeper understanding of yourself personally and spiritually.

Level I: $175
Level II: $325
Stay for both: $425

Therapeutically Relaxing Massage

60 minutes: $85
90 minutes: $120

A Therapeutically Relaxing massage is just that, a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. Typically a medium/firm pressure is used with this style of massage, although like any session it is custom tailored to fit each individuals need. By using an unique combination of techniques you will melt into the table as pain and stress fade away from your tension areas. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels, enhanced mental clarity, improved sleep and greater flexibility.

Deep Tissue with TPT

60 minutes: $85
90 minutes: $120

Deep Tissue Massage with Trigger Point Therapy aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. This is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Trigger Points, also known as "knots" are the tender areas of tension which occur in the belly of the muscle. These knots are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to release your trigger points. The effects of this technique can be profoundly transformative. This process can be painful at times, so remembering to take deep breathes while releasing this tension is important.  Clear communication is crucial while receiving deep tissue and TPT, pushing through pain that is more than a "good hurt" is actually counter productive.  Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and plenty of water should be consumed to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from this session. 

For an added benefit I like to use Mountain Sage Wellness' Muscle and Joint Pain Relief essential oil blend which aids in recovery of muscle aches, bruising and stiff joints. increases circulation and flexibiliy. Provides in anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic muscle relief. 


60 minutes: $75
90 minutes: $105

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, I work directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.

Reiki can be combined with traditional massage for even deeper relaxation, calming the mind and easing tension.

Active Coloradan Massage

60 minutes: $85
90 minutes: $120

Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function. As a mountain biker, downhiller, former ski racer and active Coloradan I understand what athletes put their bodies through. 


Get Stoned

60 minutes minutes: $90.00
90 minutes minutes: $125.00

No not like that, you can hit the dispensary later! Heated stones are used a massage tool and placed at specific areas on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating. 

Please mention you would like hot stones at the time of booking your massage, so Carissa has them prepped and ready for when you come in. 


30 minutes: $40

Reflexology can be added onto a 60 minute massage. Relfexology focuses on applying pressure to specific areas of the hands and feet to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression and more. Enjoy your reflexology session with relaxing lavender and reviving peppermint essential oils. 

Face & Scalp Massage Add-On

20 minutes: $25.00

Do you realize how much stress is stored in your face and scalp? Using skin soothing and ultra moisturizing Jojoba and Lavender essential oil enjoy an extra 20 minutes of heaven. Add on to any 60 minute session.

About the oils I use

Jojoba (hÅˈhÅbÉ™) oil is used in every massage. The origin of the Jojoba plant is Arizona, California and Mexico. As an oil it is the most similar to Sebum, the oil our skin produces. It is non-toxic, non-allergenic, anti-bacterial and non-irritant so it can be used on the face and around the eyes. Jojoba is also an antioxidant containing Vitamin E and other natural minerals and best of all is ultra moisturing and non-greasy. No need to feel like you need to shower after your massage.

Jojoba Plant

The Jojoba Plant

The essentials oils I use in my practice are are handcrafted by a Golden local, Anita Boehm of Mountain Sage Wellness. They are 100% pure and of high therapeutic grade, constructed with love and Reiki energy. 

The oils I incorporate thus far: Muscle and Joint Pain Relief, Centered Sunshine, Trust, Chakra Awakening, Fragoina, and Lumarian Sage. I also have these oils for retail! You can visit to learn more about each oil.
