Sheila O’Shaughnessy, LMT

I am a Colorado native, born in Grand Junction, and after spending middle and high school in Albuquerque, I found Fort Collins as home base. I’ve left several times only to return, so I now just feel blessed to live in this amazing place!

I graduated from Kona Hawaii School of Muscular Massage during one of my adventures away from Colorado. I lived there for most of 10 years working in various settings with a variety of clients from professional athletes to tourists just wanting to relax. Much of my education was athletic based, focused on Ironman triathletes. I was also trained in traditional Lomi-Lomi massage which is incorporated into most sessions, this helps relax the nervous system allowing for a deeper, therapeutic, yet pain free massage. I also have experience and desire to work with youth of any age.

My favorite enhancements to facilitate: the Dry Brush and Crown Enhancements!

Client Review: “I had a wonderful massage yesterday at Amara Massage in Fort Collins! Sheila followed all of my requests and applied the pressure that I felt I needed. Very relaxing, felt like a million when I left there. The person at the desk was efficient and knowledgeable. Thank you to all involved with me! I would highly recommend this spa for a great massage!” ~ Traci F.
