Tyler grew up in the Roaring Fork Valley and is passionate about educating, guiding, and healing. He studied massage in Hawaii and his work is a combination of Lomi Lomi and the principals of Structural Integration. Lomi Lomi is an ancient Hawaiian healing art incorporating rhythmic movements and long forearm strokes that progressively release muscles from light to deep, move lymphatic fluid, and reset the alignment of the bones. He loves educating people about their bodies and promoting healthy, mindful living. He is also trained in Neuromuscular Manipulation, Active Release Technique, Myofascial Trigger Point Release, Acupressure and Meridian Massage.

Aesthetician

 

Carol Trulove has been an aesthetician in the Roaring Fork Valley for nearly 30 years. The foundation of her practice is rooted in the science of her field, her knowledge base always adapting and growing to accommodate new discoveries. What remains central and unchanging, however, is Carol’s belief that the act of beautifying oneself is not a disposable vanity, but rather an act of self care and compassion, a conversation with one’s spirit. Combining knowledge and intuition, Carol’s intention is always to uncover, rather than create, her client’s beauty.
