Our commitment to collaboration spreads outside of the confines of our cooperative. Massage therapy and Acupuncture provide complementary care which make your return to health that much faster. We are pleased to have Karrie Bowen, LMT and Amanda Goossen, L.Ac to provide massage and acupuncture services on site.
Amanda Goossen, L.Ac
Amanda began her journey into Chinese Medicine in 1997 when she witnessed an acupuncture treatment for the first time. Several years later acupuncture was instrumental in helping her solve a health challenge of her own.
Amanda received her Masters degree from The Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, FL, one of 3 schools in the country teaching the unique tradition of Five Element Acupuncture. Additionally, Amanda is a certified Medical Qi Gong practitioner having studied with Paul Frasier, L.Ac., student of Tom Tam and Master Ou Wen Wei.Acupuncture with Amanda Goossen
Karrie is a Certified Massage Therapist who has over 14 years of experience. She received her massage training at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy, graduating in 1998.
Her main massage modalities are Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and Deep Tissue Massage. The main focus of her treatments is to view the body as a whole, see how people move and where they have restrictions. She has extensive experience in treating many chronic pain issues such as neck pain, hip pain, low back pain, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries, piriformis syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many more. Karrie has also been trained in Mastectomy Massage and Craniosacral Therapy.
Karrie feels that many chronic pain issues develop due to postural imbalances (from poor posture habits or past surgeries and injuries) and that by bringing the body back into balance many of those issues can be reduced or even resolved.
