Don Girodo, LMT A Therapist Who Cares

image28

I grew up in Grand Junction and am a Native Coloradan. I left Grand Junction in 1983 to serve my country in the United States Air Force. I spent over 20 years in the Air Force traveling all around the world. I lived in Maryland for over 20 years and retired there from the military. I returned to Colorado in 2011 to be closer to my parents and family. 

Upon returning to Colorado I wanted to find a career where I could help people. I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy. I attended the massage program at IntelliTec College and furthered my education through The Giving Touch Massage School. During my schooling I was drawn to the therapeutic aspect of massage and its application to the natural healing process.

I continued my education by becoming certified in Medical Massage. Medical massage is a therapeutic massage that can be prescribed by a physician. It is any massage performed with a desired clinical outcome. It provides the client with an individualized evaluation, specialized tests, rehabilitative exercises and stretches as well as hydrotherapy. 

I offer a variety of other treatments such as Swedish massage, therapeutic massage, deep tissue massage and hot stone massage. I provide safe, appropriate and effective techniques designed specifically for each client’s individual needs.

Therapeutic Massage

 The primary goal is to relax the entire body.  Therapeutic Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body.  It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Himalayan Hot Stone

 Hot Stone Massage is a form of massage therapy that follows the same principles of Swedish Massage with the addition of heated stones, which helps lead to deep relaxation. Adding heat to specific areas on the body enhances the feelings of relaxation and peace. Recommended in particular for individuals suffering from fibromyalgia, arthritis or other chronic pain. The penetrating effects of the heated stones allows the massage to be delivered without excessive pressure. 

5 tips to get the most from your massage

5 tips to get the most from your massage

  • Let the massage therapist know your expectations and reasons for your massage.
  • Report any discomfort, whether it's from the massage or due to any problems or distractions in the room.
  • Give feedback to the massage therapist several times during the massage on the amount of pressure or speed of hand movement.
  • Allow for some open quite time after your massage. It may take some time to integrate or absorb the results of the massage session
  • Be prepared to come more than once.  The therapeutic effects of massage are cumulative, so the more often you get a massage, the better you will feel and the more quickly your body will respond.

drink water!

Post Massage

Massage helps to detoxify the body, stimulating the natural drainage of the lymphatic system and other vital organs. Because of this, it is important that you continue to drink plenty of water after your session to avoid dehydration & prolong benefits.
