Colleen Young

Massage Therapist

Colleen was born and raised in San Diego, CA. At an early age, she was exposed to the beauty of the ocean, the mountains and desert nearby, instilling a continual desire to unwind in the Great Outdoors. She moved to the Spokane area about two years ago to re-connect with family and to enjoy the beauty of the area during her free time. Colleen obtained an Associates of Science Degree in Integrative Massage from Wellspring School of Allied Health, in Kansas City. Her training emphasized “less is more,” and she chooses lighter modalities to reflect her belief that one does not need to feel bruised the next day to reap benefits from a therapeutic massage. Although she was trained in traditional deep tissue massage (Neuromuscular/Trigger-Point Therapy) she has discovered that many clients mistake deep pressure with deep tissue: reaching muscle beyond the superficial layer. Her journey of finding a “different way to skin the cat” led her recently to training in the John Barnes Myofascial Release Approach. This modality’s sole focus is the fascia surrounding the muscle. For many people, it is a viable answer to relieving pain. Despite being gentle, this method reaches through deep layers of fascial restrictions to the muscle, allowing the muscle (knots) to be unwound through sustained holds (often 5-30 minutes per restriction). Please see a detailed description online or ask for a copy of the John Barnes Myofascial Release Approach at the front desk. Colleen also specializes in Raindrop Technique using 9 Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils (her favorite modality and the reason she became a Massage Therapist), Bellanina Facelift Massage, as well as her own Therapeutic style. She enjoys taking new training to meet the specialized needs of her clients so watch for new offerings. “We are glad you chose 7 Wonders and look forward to making this fraction of your day one you will want to repeat often.”
