If there is one thing people know about me, and my husband BJ, it is that we are committed to following our path in life. For 38 years I have embraced all of the ups and downs, twists and turns only to find that with each life change I am taken to a new level of learning, prosperity and health. Recently we found that our life is taking yet another major turn, which is bringing us back to New England. My husband has taken a job in Newport, RI and we will be moving to the Ocean State within 60 or so days. I am originally from Cape Cod and my husband from Wesport, MA so after almost a decade we will be near our family and friends once again. We are very excited and feel that with all major life changes this too, is meant to be. It’s been a wild ride for the last 3-4 weeks as things have moved at a fast pace falling into place all around us.
The past 4 years in private practice has been a life enhancing experience for my clients and myself. I have worked extremely hard and am confident that I made a positive impact on the lives of others while also being the recipient of an incredibly loyal clientele. I thank everyone who passed my name along to another and not only trusted me with their body but with the bodies of their husbands, wives, friends and children. You have given me gifts that will never be forgotten and which have shaped me into a better health care provider and person on the whole. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping me become that practitioner I am today.
I have been working steadily over the past few weeks on a plan for the practice that will leave all of my clients in talented hands led by extensive knowledge and experience. As of September 15, 2010 I am honored to introduce Maia Ignatz as the new owner of my practice and the Massage Boulder brand. As Maia and I both agree there are no coincidences in life, we were brought together briefly in the spring of 2009 only to be reunited a year later. The purpose of our lives intersecting became very clear, quite quickly.
Maia is passionate about working with people and educating them about what they can do to improve and maintain their health and well being. She is Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, she is an honors graduate of the Boulder College of Massage Therapy’s 1000-hr massage therapy certificate program, holds a BA in Kinesiology from the University of Colorado and is an experienced athlete having raced X-Terra off road triathlons which allows her to relate on a experiential level to athletes of all abilities. Her work experience includes sport and spine physical therapy as well as neuromuscular dentistry.
She believes that she has an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others through pain treatment, injury prevention, performance enhancement, relaxation and overall health improvement and maintenance. Maia’s expertise, experience and education make her a qualified and natural choice for this business. Having received her work personally, I can attest to her nurturing and skilled touch.
Maia will be honoring all current outstanding packages and gift certificates. She will be reaching out personally to everyone as September 15th approaches and feels quite honored to be working with all of you. As of today my plan is to practice and schedule appointments up to the 15th and possibly into the end of September. I will not be taking anymore weekend appointments or issuing new packages/gift certificates. Exact dates are still up in the air for my move but I will keep the communication open in regards to more openings and availability.
I will never be able to express what you have given me and thank you will never seem to be enough but what I can tell you is that you have changed my life forever.
