Chiropractic Lakewood CO Tamara Sassolino
MASSAGE THERAPIST

TAMARA SASSOLINO, L.M.T.

Tamara graduated from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2012. She has taken several continuing education classes since then including but not limited to; ortho-muscular approaches to the cervical spine, lower extremities, and massage for pregnancy. She has a special interest in pre/postnatal massage and inner oral jaw work.

Tamara loves the puzzle of figuring out how to treat an issue and uses a variety of techniques to accomplish the goals of her clients. Some of those techniques include cupping, trigger point, ART, as well as pin and stretch. Along with what some would call the basic massage strokes such as Swedish and deep tissue.

Tamara played soccer, and basketball, and did several events in track while growing up. Between getting injured in sports and other injuries she has sustained, she can relate to the pain that most people feel on a daily basis, whether from a sports injury or just life.

There are 3 things that she believes in while treating clients.

  1. The session you receive is yours, not hers. If something doesn't feel right, or you would like something changed with pressure or technique, communicate that to her.
  2. Deep pressure is not always the best approach to treatment. "No pain, no gain," doesn't hold true in her practice.
  3. We often treat our cars better than we do our bodies, yet we use our bodies so much more. Yet we take our cars in for regular maintenance and don't do the same for our bodies. Even if you believe that your body is "all good," you should still get some body work for your general health maintenance.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, especially hanging out in the mountains either hiking or camping.
