Hi, I’m Diana Todd, Certified Massage Therapist. I have been keeping my clients healthy and active and doing what they love to do for 15 years! I deliver a strong, deep and intuitive massage that is a unique combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue and Shiatsu massage techniques. It is thorough, deeply relaxing and above all therapeutic. My graduate degree in Exercise Physiology combined with my personal experience as a runner, athlete, and personal trainer gives me a unique perspective and deeper understanding of the human body. I strongly believe in the mind/body connection and encourage my clients to see and feel that connection as well. Trail running is how I personally stay fit, both mind and body, and I have completed several ultra-marathons . Being fit, healthy and strong is what comes naturally to me and I do my best to walk the talk daily, both physically and emotionally. I consider it a great day if I can be an inspiration to others by being real and open and sharing from my own growth and healing process.

Stress is a common denominator for everyone. Relaxing the nervous system, releasing the muscles, allowing endorphins to flow are all by-products of a good massage. Combine that with focus and attention to specific problem areas, and the result is a good night’s sleep, a lasting effect on the body and the promotion of the body’s own ability to heal itself. Human touch is often infrequent these days. The touch of the human hand and the awareness that it brings to our bodies reminds us that we are connected. There are many modalities that bring about healing, but few contain the element of total acceptance and the caring thought of human touch as comprehensively as massage therapy. These are the intentions I hold and the assets I bring to my work.

I am certified in Thai Massage from the International Training Massage (ITM) school in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Thai massage is performed fully clothed on a mat on the ground and consists of three components: 1) It is like having yoga done to you – something the Thai believe is ten times more effective than doing it yourself, 2) Pressure points and 3) Deep pressure, typically done in a gentle rocking motion. Often two or three of these are done simultaneously. Energy is moved from the feet upwards through the body, bringing a revitalized, light and energetic feeling at the completion of the massage. In contrast, Japanese Shiatsu, although done fully clothed on a mat on the ground as well, and consisting of deep pressure combined with specific pressure points along meridians and some gentle stretching, it aims to move energy downwards through the body, leaving a very grounding, peaceful and calming effect. I generally find myself giving a traditional massage, which for me entails a combination of Swedish, deep tissue and pressure points and integrating some Thai and Shiatsu as well. However, I love to practice a purely Thai Massage!

I have practiced massage therapy for several years since I graduated from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2007, interrupted by time living overseas and working in the American Embassy as Community Liaison Coordinator in Bulgaria and in the Consular Section in Bangladesh before 2007. I have a Master’s degree in Math Education and have taught in the past, prior to going to massage therapy school. Living in Bangladesh and traveling to Thailand where I discovered Thai massage and finally decided to learn it, is where my interest in massage began back in 2001. I was also a Peace Corps Volunteer in Nepal. I’ve done a lot of traveling in the past. I practice yoga, trail running, swimming, and skiing, but my passion is paragliding. My biggest job by far however, has been the raising of my four beautiful daughters.
