Natalia is a native of San Juan, Costa Rica, which is where she first began her study of Massage Therapy. In her studies in Costa Rica, Natalia obtained a certification in Reflexology, Hot Stone Massage and Acupressure. In 2012, Natalia moved to Upstate New York and continued her education in massage therapy, obtaining an Associate Degree in Therapeutic Massage and Integrated Health Care at the Finger Lakes Community College in Canandaigua, NY. She is currently pursuing further education in Myofascial Release and Manual Kinesthetic at the Living Arts Massage & Bodywork School in Westminster, Colorado. She recently received a certificate in Lymphatic Manual Therapy, a very soothing and nurturing technique that supplements traditional massage by encouraging health and balance in the immune system by creating flow and rejuvenation throughout the lymph system.
In her work at CBW, Natalia specializes in Swedish Massage, Shiatsu, Neuromuscular Therapy and Prenatal Massage. Natalia’s signature massage style is very dynamic. She creates a calming and rejuvenating flow that blends Swedish massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Shiatsu Techniques, focusing on the specific areas that need more attention, but also integrating the whole body to obtain optimum function and relaxation. Additionally, she is a Pranic Healer and a Reiki Practitioner, which contribute to her overall style and philosophy as a massage therapist.
In speaking about her work, Natalia says, “My goal for each treatment is to listen to my client’s needs and to create the best session; bringing balance, love, compassion and transformation to every client.” Throughout her career as a massage therapist, Natalia has learned that establishing a safe and comfortable space for her clients is key in achieving maximum results.
Natalia relocated to Boulder, Colorado in 2015. In her free time, she is passionate about practicing yoga, dancing, camping and spending time with her family.
