PUT YOUR BODY

About the Therapist
I'm Griff Gunnufson, the owner and Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) of Peaceful Hills Massage and Wellness. I am licensed in the state of Colorado and also a member of ABMP (Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals). As a graduate of Colorado School of Healing Arts, I have a broad skill set, including Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, neuromuscular, sports, and myofascial release.
I started my practice because I am passionate about taking a holistic approach to wellness and believe that massage is a vital modality for facilitating balance, as well as optimizing performance and recovery within the body. I strive to provide integrative bodywork tailored to the needs of each individual. While I enjoy all modalities, I especially enjoy providing therapeutic massage that helps relieve pain and facilitate healing. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, skiing, rock climbing, and mountain biking.
Why Did I Become a Massage Therapist?
Over the course of twenty years sitting behind a desk and working long, thankless hours, I watched my health decline dramatically. After the numbers on the scale and my list of pills kept increasing, I finally decided that I needed to make a change. I began to focus on fitness by exercising and volunteering my time coaching youth sports, but I still felt like I was missing something, so I delved deeper into the world of wellness.
My exploration led me to realize that achieving optimal health required a holistic approach that included diet, sleep, physical recovery, and mental well-being. I knew that this was the path I wanted to be on, and that my current career was not sustainable in this pursuit, so I took a leap of faith and I left my corporate job. My newfound passion lead me to start school for massage therapy at the Colorado School of Healing Arts, which proved invaluable. My education allowed me to examine and better understand the complexities of the human body, as well as how to aid the healing and recovery through a variety of modalities and bodywork techniques.
The knowledge I have gained through my investment in wellness has renewed my vitality and continually fuels my passion to help educate and support others in achieving their holistic health goals in mind, body, and spirit.
I welcome you to my judgment-free practice and am excited to join and assist you in your journey. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out via my contact form and I will respond as soon as possible.
