Alvino Massage is a core part of your active lifestyle! Colorado is a haven for active people. Let’s face it, the sun shines on us! We spend a lot of time outdoors, whether it's jogging, skiing, cycling, or just walking the dog.
Operating as usual
Based on the recommendation of the American Massage Therapist Association (AMTA), and Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP) and other trusted professional organizations and colleagues:
Alvino Massage will remain closed in May.
As such, all memberships will be suspended in May and we will revisit normal business operations starting June 1st. Alvino Massage will reopen at a point where safety isn't a primary question. If you are currently scheduled in May, your appointment is cancelled. If you have a standing appointment, you will maintain that appointment in the future.
This is one of the most difficult decisions I've ever made. I miss you. I miss working. I miss the discussions. When you look at what Colorado requires for massage, from a personal protective equipment standard alone, it's not practical to open given the supply chain. The rest of the Governor's standard implies there is still a huge risk.
I know the best way to mitigate risk is to stay closed at this time. Though I know there will be some disappointment, I hope most of you are a little relieved. We will open eventually!!!
In the meantime, Christen and I have been hosting online trivia! I'd be happy to host a happy hour trivia session for us. Gideon and I have been gardening (and hockey) madmen. Elliot is perfecting his Ninja skills. Christen is happily working from home. And... our pets are still crazy.

It’s been nearly four years since I had that other job. You might remember, I spent many years in the residential structural design business. People say massage couldn’t be further from houses. Everyday as a therapist, I am reminded the two are truly similar. You say your door doesn’t close without thudding against the door frame? Chances are the door frame isn’t square anymore due to other stresses it had to endure. [ 204 more words. ]

It is very important to find out what a person is looking for before we start your treatment. Before we start your massage, I ask where you would like me to focus. The vast majority of the time, people will say, “I carry all my stress…” and point to a part of their body. Generally, people point to their neck or their shoulders. [ 318 more words. ]

The ALS #IceBucketChallenge raises money and awareness to the neurological disorder also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. They've raised much more this year than before... I've been challenged by a few folks, and I am challenging some of the teachers in my school.
Being a muscle guy and a well-being guy, I am pretty interested and have seen the effects first hand.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.
So, donate... douse yourself with a bucket of ice water and spread the word, or better yet... do both!
On Tuesday evening at 6:30, August 12th, we will be teaching a massage class geared toward the community. This month, we will be discussing hand and forearm massage.
Typically, we spend a little time showing massage techniques that do not require as well as techniques that do. We also spend just a little bit of time talking about various lotions and oils.
Our class is once a month on the second Tuesday. This will introduce you to massage without overwhelming you. The price is $15 for one person, or $25 if you want to bring a friend.
Our class is located at "The Garden - Park Hill", 3435 Albion St - Denver - 80207.
We hope to see you there!
