Lori's pleasant demeanor and genuine desire to build with clients relationships that support achievement of health and well-being goals make her an excellent partner for those seeking ongoing therapeutic work. She is committed to continued learning and is inspired by clients who yearn to improve their lives by choosing, whenever possible to engage in life enriching activities such as massage, yoga, self-care and gardening. After spending time nurturing her 95 year old father in the final months of his life Lori chose to retire from a career that had been good to her but that she was not passionate about. Grounded in a childhood rich in self-care and home remedies, inspired by a community of alternative health care professionals Lori is now thrilled to be embraced by a career and personal path that promises to be both contributory and personally satisfying.

Hi, I'm Colin Waters, a dedicated massage therapist with a deep passion for helping individuals achieve optimal physical well-being graduated from the prestigious National Holistic Institute in 2019, where I gained comprehensive knowledge of various massage techniques. My expertise lies in deep tissue myofascial release, a specialized approach that targets deep-seated tension and promotes overall muscular health. Through skillful manipulation, I effectively alleviate pain, enhance range of motion, and restore balance to the body.
What sets me apart is my empathetic and intuitive nature, which allows me to connect with clients on a deeper level. I understand that each individual has unique needs, and I tailor each session to address their specific concerns. I believe in truly listening to my clients, making sure they feel heard, understood, and valued throughout their massage experience.
In recognition of my exceptional academic achievements, I was honored with the Outstanding Academic Leadership Award from the National Holistic Institute in 2019. This award speaks to my dedication, commitment, and relentless pursuit of excellence in my field.
Whether you're seeking relief from chronic pain, recovering from an injury, or simply in need of relaxation, I am here to go above and beyond to provide you with a transformative and rejuvenating experience.

I am an artist. I am guided by intuition and am served by a solid education and deep curiosity about the human condition, mind-body-soul. I am constantly researching, learning and expanding my skills, tools and capacity to bring wellness, joy and healing to myself, my clients, friends and community. My specialty as a massage therapist is an integrative approach that focuses on your needs. I combine a variety of techniques and generally you will receive some combination of Swedish, deep tissue and energy somatics. Every massage will be uniquely tailored according to your requests and verbal cues. Guided by intuition and responding to feedback from your musculature and energy body I will treat the experience as though I am creating and restoring a treasured work of art.
