massage therapist

As someone who has suffered from chronic pain and injuries resulting from gymnastics, long-distance backpacking, running, cycling, and working at a computer, I am able to relate and work in a way that feels complete to my clients, helping them feel light and renewed when they leave my table.

Integrative Massage Therapist for those seeking to develop a deeper awareness of their bodies.

I guide my clients in developing a deeper awareness of their bodies, while relieving the tension built up from everyday life. I do this through noticing misalignments and imbalances in posture, and noticing tendencies causing chronic tension, knots, headaches, or discomfort. We work together in specific breathing techniques, talking things out, or holding space, whatever the client needs at the moment.

I customize each session based on my client’s needs, as well as what energy they are holding and wanting to let go of, or receive. I use a combination of trigger point therapy and neuromuscular techniques for chronic injuries or misalignments, and deep tissue on stubborn areas.

Massage is an effective tool for managing stress, this translates to:

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Greater energy
  • Improved concentration
  • Increased circulation
  • Reduced fatigue

I live with chronic pain from several neck surgeries and Jocelyn Diles is better than any physical therapist who has worked on me. She knows exactly how to read my body. – Jill D, Golden, CO

Services

Integrative Massage

Based on the work of psychologist Wilhelm Reich, integrative massage focuses on the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. In order to bring about this connection, various techniques and styles are utilized, making each session unique based on the clients needs at that time.

Specific Injury Treatment

I specialize in specific work to relieve pain such as headaches and migraines, whiplash, tendonosis, back pain, knee pain, scoliosis, or chronically tight muscles that are affecting athletic performance. Often clients will come to me with specific areas of tension, pain or discomfort.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage works on realigning the deeper layers of muscle tissue, using various techniques that often require firmer, sustained pressure, including myofascial release, trigger point, and neuromuscular massage. Due to the intensity, I always work within my client’s comfort.

Neuromuscular Massage

Neuromuscular massage is a specialized form of massage that works with the nervous system in order to release specific holding patterns. The work addresses myofascial trigger points, nerve entrapment and compression, dysfunctional gait patterns, and more.

Trigger Point Therapy

A trigger point is a tight area in the muscle that causes pain in other parts of the body due to how connective tissue spreads throughout the body. Trigger point therapy is specifically focused on relieving pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.

Headaches/Migraines

I understand that living with headaches and migraines can be debilitating, so I work with my clients to assist in relieving their suffering. I offer 30 – 60 minute sessions directed specifically towards work on the contributing muscles in the upper back and neck.
