I'm Lynette Foley - Welcome to Heaven In Telluride!
I offer both massage therapy and meditation instruction - customized to your specific needs.
I love doing bodywork and have been practicing over 16 years, specializing in traditional Swedish massage, hot stone work (my speciality), trigger point therapy, guided meditation for relaxation and pure essential oils.
I've attended massage school twice. My original training was with massage "Hall of Fame" therapist Lynn Wind in Kailua-Kona Hawaii in 1991. In 2014 I completed an additional 500 hours at the Connecting Point School of Massage in Telluride.
I endeavor to approach each session in reverence and humility. The philosophy of my practice is that "Each of us knows what is best by looking deep within."
Prior to the start of each session I conduct a brief but thorough client interview to ensure your goals are known, preferences addressed and the session is customized to your individual needs.
Many of my clients enjoy deep tissue bodywork. I use Trigger Point technique. For the sake of the health of your soft tissue - I request that the degree of pressure used stay in the realm of the parasympathetic nervous system, where all healing occurs. This translates to pressure of up to a 5 on a scale of 10. Who wants to be sore after a massage?!
This means that you can thoroughly relax and let go. No gripping and wishing "this too shall pass" during your session. You'll be relaxed and able to breathe into the work. In this way, your body's own healing response can step in, creating lasting results.
My spacious office is located in a quiet lower level space in center of town at Pine & Pacific in Telluride - right across the street from the Wilkinson Public Library. There's plenty of room for a family member or friend to relax during your session including free Wi-Fi and comfortable lounge area with water & hot tea available.
I've lived in Telluride since 1995 and have I've been lucky enough to call Trout Lake home since 2012.
Using state-of-the-art equipment and hygienically clean sheets & towels each session starts with a warm magnesium salt foot bath during your preference interview, then onto the table for a brief guided imagery and instructions on breathing for best results (1-2 min) followed by an anatomy specific therapeutic massage with trigger point work (nothing that hurts!) using organic lotion infused with arnica, hot stones as needed, plus pure essential oils - all included.
Session timed "on table".
