David Packert

David became fascinated with the possibilities of Massage Therapy at a young age. After witnessing injuries in family members, and experiencing them himself, he never seemed to quite get the care that he needed from other alternative therapies. As a very athletic child growing up in the mountains, David was an avid swimmer, hockey player, and snowboarder, and unavoidably experienced the many complications of being so awesome.

During his time in undergraduate school studying art, he was mesmerized by anatomy and decided to learn more about it. In becoming a Massage Therapist, he has found ways of connecting with people on a more personal level than other therapies have time for, which he finds to be the major core of why he loves what he does. In addition to his training in Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy and advanced Sports Massage techniques, he holds advanced training in Core Synchronism, Reiki, and Quantum Cranial, which allow him to connect more energetically with his clients, and yield even more lasting results.

Krista Opocensky

Krista provides a strong, attuned, and therapeutic touch with her bodywork. Coming from a background as a CNA and holistic health coach, she has a whole-body approach to health and wellness. She brings so much more than just bodywork to her table! Drawing on knowledge of holistic health and wellness, she is passionate about meeting the needs of the whole person, not just their muscular health. In addition to a strong understanding of resolving pain patterns with Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy, Krista combines this work with Cranial Sacral work in many of her sessions, which allows for more subtle shifts to occur within the body with less force.

With a strong touch and style of work which is focused on resolving the root cause, her work will allow you to become more connected to your body, more inspired and knowledgeable about your well-being, and allow you to get back to the activities that chronic pain has been keeping you from enjoying!

Gretchen Popp

Gretchen has been massaging for decades, beginning with working on her parents shoulders on movie nights as a young child. She's always had a knack for knowing where the good-hurt spots can be found, and has been told many times that her ability to connect with those trouble areas is a superpower.

In her younger years she was a competitive dancer and cheerleader, and has personal experience with the injuries that are sustained from repetitive and demanding movements. She loves working with people who push their bodies to the extreme, are dedicated to their passion, and wont let an injury set them back - meaning they're willing to go the distance with taking care of themselves. Her clients especially appreciate her fluid style of bodywork which allows her to sneak-in Physical Therapy-style treatment work, as well as her additional training as a Clinical Herbalist and Nutritionist, which allows her to add more valuable healing advice to all of her sessions.

Her most recent additions of becoming a Yoga Teacher and Certified Optimize Coach allow her to bring more specific self-care routines to her clients which combine movement, nutrition, and Optimial living science.
