Pain is such a drag. It ruins your quality of life, takes the fun out of important moments, and is your constant (unwelcome) companion.
It's my passion to help you find the relief that will get you back to enjoying life again!
So who am I and what motivates me to help relieve chronic pain for my clients?
Hi there, I'm Tyler!
I became a massage therapist in 2016 after a lifelong interest in health and the body. I'm fascinated by the mind-body connection and intrigued by how pain is interpreted by the mind. Massage is such a great fit for pain relief because it helps you to relax at a deep level, both physically and mentally.
When I was young, my mom had back surgery. I watched her go through daily therapy exercises and started doing them with her. This had a huge impact on how I managed my own injuries and helped me to learn how to think about pain from a place of action and relaxation.
After more than a decade of owning an independent bookshop (Braun Books, for those who have been around awhile), I finally fulfilled my childhood dream and attended massage school. Once I graduated, I dove right into the profession by working at inspiring resorts and spas in breathtaking Vermont. It was a lot of fun working with people from all over the world and I learned a lot about how others perceive pain and relaxation. I recently returned back home to southern Utah, ready to help people in my own community with relaxing and reducing their chronic pain issues.
When I'm not massaging or studying, you can find me climbing boulders, hiking to the top of a peak, biking mountain trails, or taking my two kids camping. I love moving and being outside!
