Dara Purdy, LMT
I graduated from Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado in 2008 and immediately upon graduating, began working for a personal trainer doing sports massage. My area of expertise is with pain relief and through the use of deep tissue and trigger point therapy I aim to get my clients' bodies back to a state of well-being. I have worked in many different massage environments using various types of modalities in addition to deep tissue, I have also practiced other modalities including prenatal, zoku shindo, hot stone, and oncology massage.
I grew up with an herbalist for a mother so natural ways of healing have always been a part of my life. My passion for health and helping people led me to take a few extra steps along the way. I went to classes to become a licensed CNA (certified Nurse's Assistant) and also briefly worked as an in-home care taker. I am currently in school studying to become a physical therapist.
As an example of of the ways in which I have been involved in the massage world over the years you can check out this article which references my experience with oncology massage:
"I loosened the muscle tissues so she felt more comfortable in her own skin," said Purdy. "She said she felt amazing — that she could actually move without pain."
I look forward to meeting you soon!
