My name is Claire Elliott and I moved to Colorado in 2007 from Illinois. My heart was always in the mountains, so I eventually made my way to Summit County in 2015 after spending some time in Fort Collins and Denver.
My journey as a massage therapist began in 2010 at The Colorado School of Healing Arts in Fort Collins. The school I went to specializes in a type of neuromuscular massage technique they call Body Insight, a very therapeutic style that often requires active or passive movement from the client. I am very grateful to have learned this technique and I still use it in my practice today.
Throughout the years, I completed a 6 month sports massage certification, went to India and completed my yoga teacher certification, and now I have been studying the therapeutic world of Ashiatsu (barefoot massage)! These courses have helped me deepen my understanding of the body in movement and how to address recovery and injury.
Over the 10+ years I have been practicing massage, I have had the privilege of practicing in many different settings. Working with a chiropractor, physical therapists, at ski resorts, and overseas has helped make my practice multifaceted with different techniques to help relieve pain and tension in the body. Massage Therapy is my passion and I hope to have the opportunity to share it with you!
Claire is great! I’m accustomed to sports and deep tissue massages back home but now I wish I could take Claire home with me. I’m going to schedule with her every time we come into town. Very knowledgeable and her love of people is contagious. She exudes warmth and kindness naturally. She continues to add to her skills and seems to be constantly learning ways she can better serve her clients. Do your body a huge kindness and book with her now!
Learning to Listen.
I want my clients to take control of their own healing and understand how powerful their minds and bodies really are. As we work together to gain self-awareness, we learn to listen intuitively to the body to avoid injury and gain knowledge of imbalances the client may have that is causing pain and tension.
My mission is to help my clients slow down and tune into the body and listen. When we slow down and become mindful of what is going on in the body, we can become more proactive about avoiding or advancing any injuries or imbalances we already have. If you listen, the body will tell you what it needs. Trust your intuition and begin your journey in healing.
