My name is Myra (pronounced Mirra) and I have been a massage therapist in Pagosa Springs, CO for almost 20 years. I graduated from The Silversword Academy and Clinic of Massage Therapy and Spa Services in Durango, CO with 1000 hours in 2002. Since that time, I have been doing massage full time. I am also a Level 3 certified ski instructor with over 27 years as an active member of PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors Of America). My decision to move to Pagosa Springs was influenced by the ski area as well as my love of the southwest and the outdoors in general.
I recognize that the world is in a time of great change. Many people are feeling excessive amounts of stress these days. It is my intention to bring as much peace and relaxation as possible to those people who choose to come to me for a massage. I have always felt that an outstanding massage experience is achieved through a combination of several key factors and this is how I approach my own practice. My attention to detail is simply an extension of what I prefer when I get a massage. A very peaceful setting, an extra comfortable table, really good (soothing) music, and a nurturing and intuitive touch that is the perfect amount of pressure, whether your preference is light, medium or deep. I always use high quality, natural and organic oils. I let my clients set the tone. My job is to facilitate a soothing and relaxing experience without interruption, allowing each person the opportunity to go as deeply into their “zone” as they desire. I am very respectful of individual needs, and I encourage my clients to communicate with me in order to get the most from their massage.
I consider my office space to be a watering hole of sorts, for the soul. I invite you to immerse yourself in pure sensory surroundings and exquisite contentedness. I am confident that you won’t be disappointed. It truly is more than a massage, it’s an experience…
Swedish Massage involves soft, long, kneading strokes and is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing.
Deep Tissue Massage uses many of the same movements as Swedish Massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure will generally be more intense and concentrated on specific areas of tension and pain. It shouldn’t hurt, but it is likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a classic Swedish Massage.
Prenatal Massage shares many of the goals of regular massage but is tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. Generally Prenatal clients will lie on their side with pillows for support.

across from Tequilas and in between Bookends and Home Again.
