Danelle Wesley, DC – Doctor of Chiropractic and Soft Tissue Mobilization Specialist

Dr. Danelle Wesley, “Dr. D,” grew up in eastern Wisconsin and moved to Saint Paul, Minnesota to complete her undergraduate degree from the University of MN – Twin Cities. After earning her Bachelor of Science-Kinesiology degree, she began to pursue her lifelong passion of becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic. She graduated cum laude at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN in 2014. Dr. D and her family moved to Littleton, CO in early May 2014.

Dr. D has experience working with people of all ages, from 2 weeks to 90+ years old. She has a passion for working with athletes of all calibers and all sports. Dr. D is well practiced in correcting and eliminating neck pain, headaches, upper back pain, lower back pain, as well as extremity pain. She specializes in manual muscle release therapy, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), and works to correct spinal imbalances directly through manual spinal manipulation (adjustments), as well as indirectly through specific muscular release and re-education.

Erica Armstrong – Massage Therapist

Hi, my name is Erica Armstrong, I graduated from Denver School of Massage Therapy in 2010. I am the oldest of 5 siblings so I have always had a nurturing side. That’s part of the reason I became a Massage Therapist. I want to be able to help my clients any way I can.

I have a great understanding of how certain postures can lead to pain and tension.  I prefer to work on specific areas that may be giving you trouble or causing pain, but I am also great at helping people reduce stress by providing a fantastic relaxation massage.

I am a single mother to a wonderful, and very hyper, 5 year old boy named Cayden. So I understand the need to just slow down and relax sometimes. Doing massage allows me to take care of and provide for my family, while also helping others as well!

Holly Cook – Massage Therapist and Yoga Instructor

Holly Cook, yoga teacher and massage therapist, has had a passion for health and wellness as long as she can remember.  Classically trained in ballet from age 5-18, she developed an affinity for anatomy and physiology, and body awareness very early on.

After years of studying yoga, massage and holistic nutrition therapy she was inspired to grow her personal practice from a lifestyle into a career.

Holly combines her experience in yoga and massage to maximize the body’s potential for healing.  She uses yoga to assess structural dysfunction, as well as to warm and relax the body in preparation for a massage session.

Her massage practice is therapeutic and treatment based incorporating a combination of techniques including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Thai Yoga Acupressure, and Stretching.  Each session focuses on targeting aches and pains, and tension areas depending on the individual needs of each client.

As a very intuitive and compassionate therapist, she provides a safe space to let go of anything that is no longer serving the client – whether it be physical, emotional, or cerebral.

Holly graduated from Core Power Yoga Teacher Training in 2012 and from Denver Integrative Massage School – with an emphasis in Thai Yoga Massage – in 2015. She also holds a Bachelors of Communications and Journalism from Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Katrina Jenkins – Massage Therapist

I’m a licensed massage therapist and a graduate of The Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado. Passionate about the healing arts and natural medicine, I have wanted to be a body work professional since I was in my late teens. However, I didn’t actually start doing massage therapy until I was in my late-twenties.

In 2013, I graduated from Towson University with a Bachelors degree in Health Science. My family opposed my keenness for massage therapy and instead persuaded me to go to a four-year university. During my time as a college student, I had been working as a certified nurse’s assistant and was encouraged by family members and school advisors to apply to a Masters Program for nursing. But the truth was that I sincerely didn’t like being a CNA and I had no real desire to further my career down that route. There were certainly aspects of the work that were fulfilling, but I ultimately wasn’t happy. That being said, I didn’t want to disappoint anyone and wouldn’t admit to anyone how I really felt.

2013 was also the year I left my home in Baltimore and started a new life in Denver. Applying for fulltime healthcare jobs in Denver was a fulltime job in itself. Almost every job I applied to needed either five years of experience or a higher level of education. A year had passed when I was not only still a discontented CNA, but I was also battling an illness that had been living with since I was in middle school. In 2014, my life revolved around bulimia and I was sicker than I had ever been. On multiple occasions I had tried to get well, but I relapsed every time. I thought I would never get well. Sometimes I would even feel my chest tighten and feared I was going into cardiac arrest. Thankfully though, I did eventually check myself into a hospital in November 2014 and have been disorder-free since my release in February 2015.

But what does any of this have to do with how I finally got myself into massage therapy? While I was in the hospital (first I was at Highlands Behavior Health, then the Eating Recovery Center), I had finally started to live. I found that I had hobbies and interests that I’d never given my sick self the chance to explore. For the first time in my life I felt like I had an established sense of self! I was excited to be me! And that was when it occurred to me how crucial my career path was to my emotional health. I was healthy, at
peace, and I’d worked so hard to get there. Why would I continue with nursing when it made me miserable? Why would I go through the trouble of going to school again for something I didn’t like? What did I want to do? And that was when I remembered my younger self and what she wanted to all those years ago. I soon started seeing a massage therapist as part of my recovery and was visiting massage schools whenever I got a chance.

It wasn’t long before The Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado offered me a spot on their summer roster even though the deadline to apply had already passed. I had been shadowing in the back of the classrooms in days before they invited me.
I graduated in April 2016 and landed a job at Hand & Stone Massage & Facial Spa a few weeks later. For the last year I have worked with some of the kindest and most talented therapists I know. In addition to that, I’m sure my old sick self would have never imagined that I’d have such loyal clientele. It may have taken nearly a decade to get here, but maybe that’s what makes me love what I do all the more. Sometimes you have to figure out what you don’t want to do first and as frustrating as that can be, I wouldn’t change a thing. I love what I do.

Scott Pridgen – Massage Therapist and Yoga Instructor

My name is Scott Pridgen, the human body is a beautiful thing. I am fascinated with how the human body functions, moves, and what we are capable of. This passion is what has gotten me into learning and practicing many modalities of massage as well as yoga, rock climbing, dance, and the ways we move in every day life. My original training was in Neuromuscular Therapy and Sports Massage which has led me to dive further into learning other types of massage. I have studied Thai Massage extensively in Thailand and all over the US and have taught Thai Massage at Narpoa University as well as places all over the country.

Through my study of yoga I was led to the study of Ayurveda, which is at the roots of Thai Massage. This led me to traveling and studying yoga, Ayurveda, and other forms of massage in India, and in the US. Through my studies and experience I would like to bring these wonderful healing practices to as many people as possible. It is such a beautiful thing to help and empower people to live a more healthy and full life. I look forward to each person I am blessed to work with and be able to share something that makes there life better.
