Karlan loves helping patients lead healthier and more pain free lives through the effects of massage therapy. She did her massage training in California in 2015 and has since had the opportunity to work in her hometown of Fairbanks, Alaska; Hopkins, Belize; Fort Collins, Colorado; and most recently Juneau, Alaska, where she had her lovely daughter in 2021! Karlan is happy to be back in lovely Fort Collins, CO, and as part of the team at Living Arts Wellness again. She looks forward to helping you feel better and find increased balance and wellness. Her training was focused on Swedish massage, neuromuscular techniques, deep tissue techniques, myofascial release, trigger point release techniques, prenatal massage and acupressure. Additionally, she has done continuing education in treatment for lower back pain, sports massage, cupping, prenatal massage, massage therapy with diabetes mellitus and more. Karlan is also a trained and certified Labor Doula through Childbirth International and enjoys using her knowledge to help mothers find comfort and relief on their journey through pregnancy and motherhood.
