“Massage can not only play an important role in post-surgical recovery, it also heals many soft tissue and sports injuries and helps with overall stress, insomnia, anxiety and headaches. It should be incorporated into your weekly or monthly routines” – Rhett Griggs, MD
Tricia Shadell, LMT
Tricia “Pants” as her friends so affectionately call her, joined Griggs Orthopedics in January 2017. The search for a motivated, educated and very well trained massage therapist ended for us the minute Tricia walked through our door. We are so fortunate to have her!
Tricia hails from Durango, where she independently owned and ran a private practice for over 10 years. She worked closely with physicians and other health care providers creating recovery programs and helping her clients reach their full potential. She specializes in post-surgery recovery through massage and stretching routines, and her emphasis is in helping every individual acknowledge their bodies and stresses so they can heal.
Tricia also worked as a neuromuscular therapist at Aria, located within Mercy Medical Center in Durango. She has experience working with Olympic and world-class athletes, and all athletes of all abilities and levels. Tricia attended Health Choices Massage School in Hillsborough, New Jersey, completing her education in 2002.
We are beyond thrilled to have Tricia join our team and we think she will be a great asset to both the Crested Butte and Gunnison communities. She is now scheduling new clients in both locations..
