Meet the Therapist

Sheila Packer, LMT

I am a Colorado native and have been in the Weld county area since 2001. I have 14 years of experience in the medical field including CT/X-ray and Massage Therapy. I graduated from the Healing Arts Institute in 2014 with my certificate in Massage Therapy. I specialize in Deep Tissue Neuromuscular Therapy and cupping, providing 30-60 min specialized sessions to address areas of discomfort. My goal is to help clients benefit from the positive effects of therapeutic massage as it fits into their personal, competitive or comprehensive rehabilitation programs reducing discomfort and improving daily living. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and specialized healing techniques with each person I treat. My primary focus is to help clients reduce stress and tension, ease chronic pain and musculoskeletal injuries.

What is Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)?

This medically-oriented form of massage addresses trigger points (tender muscles points), circulation issues, nerve compression, postural issues, and biomechanical problems that are caused by repetitive movement injuries.

NMT is highly effective for clients who present with chronic pain and is often successful in reducing or eliminating even longstanding painful conditions. Some of the techniques can also be applied to acute injuries and for post-surgical care; many help to improve performance in sport or dance and to prevent injuries due to these activities.

Neuromuscular Therapy is a highly specialized type of soft tissue therapy designed to relieve pain and return injured tissues to normal function. It utilizes specific, targeted soft tissue treatment, flexibility stretching and self-care to eliminate the causes of most muscular aches and pains. It can provide long-term pain relief where other approaches have failed. Neuromuscular Therapy balances the nervous system with the muscular and skeletal systems and naturally brings the body back into alignment. It addresses postural and muscular imbalances, nerve entrapment, ischemia (reduced blood flow to an area of the body) and muscular trigger points.
