Sarah Sosic-Ratzlaff, LMT
I moved to Colorado from Italy, where I worked in a variety of customer service positions in jobs of different responsibilities.
In time of need, I was blessed in getting help from other massage therapists for my own past injuries. So I decided to take a new life path and in 2010 enrolled in the MTIC/Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado to pursue my newfound passion, massage.
Since then, I've also studied reflexology and reiki which am now offering to my Clients. They're great stress relief methods and both bring back balance to our bodies in a very gentle and caring way.
If you'd like to take care of others, remember: taking care of yourself is your #1 priority! And I hope I can be part of your healing experience to help you facilitate the relief of pain and/or discomfort in your body due to injuries or just imbalances due to mis- or over-use.
I like to regard each person as an unique individual and am yearning to provide the appropriate treatment based on your needs, while inspiring you through my experience to take charge of your own healing.
Trained in: Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, NMT, Myofascial, JROM, PNF,Trigger Point Therapy; Reflexology (feet, hands and ears); Reiki (level 1 & 2 Certified Usui Reiki Practitioner).
I also enjoy doing Corporate and Special Events Chair Massage
*** Past experiences through MTIC: Colorado Dragon Boat Festival; Exempla St.Joseph's Hospital; Wellness Center at the Swedish Hospital (all in Denver, CO); National Housekeeping Week at the Antlers at Vail, Landmark and Beaver Creek Lodge.
Previous work experience: hotels, ski schools, tourist offices, banks, lawyers' office and clothing stores.
Hobbies & Interests: I enjoy my family & the outdoors, while skiing, hiking, biking, snowmobiling, swimming and gardening. And, yes, I love country music! :)
I've also volunteered at the Beaver Creek Bird of Preys races (Winter 2004/05 & 2006/07); with the Vail Adaptive Ski program (Winter 2003/04); and at my home-town “Ski Club Devin”, where I taught kids and adults skiing and/or racing in Italy.
