Vanessa M Rydquist, LMT, CCT, CYI, Reiki Master-Teacher
(Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Cupping Therapist, Certified Yoga Instructor)
In our work together I provide a safe space for healing, deep relaxation, rejuvenation and self-discovery. You are invited to go within to find stillness, more ease in body, breath, and mind. The ability to heal is within you - I am here to help you access it.
Each session is as unique as you are and will meet you where you are. A bodywork session may include a variety of therapeutic massage techniques and will be tailored to address your needs and preferences. I work intuitively and approach each person with compassion, openness, creativity, and a desire to learn.
I am trained in Swedish (lymphatic), Deep Tissue, Thai, Trager (Oscillation), Myofascial Release, Cupping Therapy, Compassionate Touch, Reiki, Yoga, and also offer some unique experiences with a variety of massage tools. I also have a background in fitness, personal training, and hoopdance which have deepened my knowledge and understanding of the human body. I am most definitely a life-long learner, endlessly fascinated and passionate.
I have been practicing yoga and meditation since childhood, and bodywork professionally for 14 years. In my own personal healing journey I have benefited immensely from these practices that I am so humbled by, and so honored to share. I am continually awed by the power of touch, movement, and breath to facilitate healing.
I am available for sessions in Lafayette, CO at the Old Town Healing Arts Center. I also provide in-office chair massage for employee appreciation, special events, or just mid-day stress relief for your staff.
I love living and working in Lafayette. You may see me romping around town with my two little kids, riding bikes, hiking, hula hooping, swimming, or teaching yoga and body pump at the rec center. I am also currently pursuing a graduate degree in Early Childhood and Special Education.
I look forward to connecting with you soon. Namaste.
