Quinn Nelson – Dancing Aspen Massage and BodyWork
Quinn Nelson is a licensed massage therapist and Reiki Level II Practitioner. He has been working in medical imaging for 16 years and became a massage therapist in 2008 at the Healing Arts Institute in Fort Collins. He has a passion for facilitating healing and relaxation, especially in Queer and transgender clients. He specializes in Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) and has developed specialized protocols to address the health needs of transgender and nonbinary people. Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) focuses on releasing muscle tension patterns and increasing range of motion by re-educating tight muscles to move back to their most efficient length and position. NMT is used to treat injury, chronic pain, postural inefficiencies and to alleviate symptoms of many conditions such as asthma, acid reflux and sciatica. NMT speeds recovery time from hard workouts and other strenuous physical activity and lessens soreness.
Quinn also does Swedish relaxation massage, deep tissue and Sports Massage. Quinn also offers energy work including Reiki and Chakra Balancing. Chakras are energy centers in the body that are linked with physical and emotional well being when balanced, and physical discomfort and emotional disruption when imbalanced. There are seven major chakras that correlate to major nerve ganglia located along the spine. A chakra balancing is an energetic technique to assess the state of the chakras and bring them into harmony, often using Reiki. Reiki is an ancient form of Japanese energy work. Many clients feel the energy work and physiological change, and describe it as a wonderful, relaxing experience.
