About Our Practitioners

About Deborah Asmus

ott_stock_4019I have been a Massage Therapist for over 25 years! I went to the Boulder College of Massage Therapy and finished my Yoga teacher training at Soul Tree Yoga almost three years ago, after having told many a client that they too should be doing yoga.

I am very happy to be incorporating all that I have learned in Yoga with my Massage Therapy clients and vice-versa.

While I have always had a private massage therapy practice, I am also currently working at CU-Boulder two days a week, in the Sports Medicine department at Wardenberg. In the past, I have worked in health clubs, with chiropractors and physical therapists, as well as having taught at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy.

In my spare time, you will find me in a yoga class, running with my dog, Banjo, or driving my two teenagers all around town!

About Becky Sortore

IMG_5693Becky Sortore, CMT, completed her initial massage and bodywork training at the Arizona School of Massage Therapy and became Nationally Certified in 2008. She is now currently licensed in two states and is Board Certified. Since completing her training, she has had the opportunity to work in clinical settings alongside Physical Therapists and Acupuncturists, customizing each session to fit the individual’s specific needs. In a general sense, her style artfully combines deep tissue with a softer approach, helping clients achieve a state of relaxation. Becky is also trained in additional modalities such as: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, CranioSacral, Oncology, Prenatal, and most recently, Reiki.

Even as a child Becky was drawn to massage, her parents being the first lucky recipients to reap its benefits. Following her passion and the urging of those closest to her, she chose to pursue a formal career in the field. The role as a massage therapist has proven to be greatly rewarding. Becky has worked in end-of-life situations, volunteered her time with a cancer center in Seattle, and survived her own traumatic experience with death – all helping to guide her career in a direction that feels meaningful and allows her to find beauty in witnessing her work benefit others. Her ultimate goal is to create a safe space for her clients where they feel comfortable to begin their own healing experience.

 

About Old Towne Therapeutics Massage and Yoga

My goal with Massage Therapy is to get you back to where you want to be, whether it’s hiking Fourteeners, running marathons, or running after your kids. If I can’t help you, I will refer you to someone else that I think might be able to do so.

Yoga has helped cure me after two major back injuries over the past 13 years. I would love to help you with your injuries, as well.

By the way, my dog, Banjo, is often at the office and loves to greet everyone and hang out under the massage table.
