bios_07Connie Presson, L. Ac, Dipl OM
Acupuncturist

Connie Presson attended school at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine located in Denver, CO. There, she received her Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is certified as a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), which includes both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. She is licensed to practice Acupuncture in the state of Colorado. Connie is a member of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado.  Connie also has a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science and Anthropology from the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga.  She worked as an Environmental Educator prior to attending acupuncture school and has a deep appreciation for the natural world.

Connie enjoys sharing her own experiences with acupuncture and herbs with others, whether they are friends, family, or patients. Her background in education lends her the ability to instruct others on treatment, lifestyle, and diet. Connie also has a background in Ecology. So, she likes to think of the human body as a microcosm, with an ecology of its own. When the body’s internal ecosystem gets out of balance, disease is the result. Her treatments focus on bringing the body’s ecology back into balance. She also appreciates the concept of Synergy, where using multiple modalities of treatment work together to achieve results greater than the sum of their parts. Connie may use different acupuncture techniques together with herbs, cupping, or tui na to attain a synergistic effect. Connie enjoys hiking, backpacking, camping, good food, and spending time with friends and family.

Karla Freitag, B.S, R.M.T, NCMT
Massage Therapist

An Illinois native, Karla graduated from Wheaton college in 1989 with a degree in Exercise Science. Her passion for exercise, kinesiology, and the older adult population led her to a retirement community where she taught exercise classes and did personal training for 18 years.  During that time, a love and respect for massage therapy took hold as she began to understand that wellness involves not only our physical needs of exercise and proper nutrition, but also the ability to care for our mental, social, and spiritual needs.

In 2008, Karla became a licensed and nationally certified massage therapist from the Wellness and Massage Training Institute in Illinois.  She started her own private massage business as well as incorporating therapeutic massage to the wellness offerings at the retirement community.  Her family moved to Colorado in September of 2013.  She hopes to continue to share the gift of wellness and massage with those here in Colorado!  Karla specializes in a variety of massage modalities including deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, sports massage, joint mobilization/range of motion techniques, geriatric massage, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, and Ashi-Thai.

My philosophy is to provide the gift of touch in an atmosphere that resembles a peaceful retreat.  The modalities used will be customized to fit the needs and choices of the individual clients with the end goal of feeling rejuvenated and able to breathe more deeply as you leave.  Other personal interests include cycling, running, outdoor activities, strength training, and spending time with her husband and 3 boys.
