Why Touch of Balance?

When it comes to massage therapy, every minute counts!


Unlike most of our competitors, we provide the FULL 60 minutes of actual therapy time rather than the typical 50 minutes. It's just as important to us that we meet your needs during the visit, certainly more time on problematic areas will help.

We are involved in the community

Touch of Balance has donated over 100 hours of volunteer chair/table massage towards the local community. From fundraiser massages for childhood cancer research to gift certificate donations for the Larimer County Humane society, we've done it all. We love Loveland/Fort Collins and we're going to continue to help them move in a positive direction!

Referral Incentives

As a small business, we build a good majority of our clientele through word of mouth. Every referral is rewarded with an additional 30 minutes and a FREE upgrade or $30 towards your future paid session. Thank you!

Owner & Manager, Licensed Massage Therapist

I graduated from IBMC in 2012 and have been growing as a Massage Therapist ever since. My educational backgrounds and experience in healthcare for the past 5 years complement my style of massage therapy wonderfully. Since I believe massage therapy is essential to the maintenance and daily rehabilitation of the body, my mission is to support individuals in achieving life balance through personal wellness. My goal as a therapist is to focus on enabling my clients to deliver their best performances every day.

From the corrective care plan to the stress reducing deep relaxation massage, I like to pride myself on having an intuitive touch and understanding of the muscles and their relationship to the rest of the body. This gives me the tools needed to evaluate the body and help alleviate the problem.

Outside of massage therapy, I enjoy independent study of natural herbal/holistic/natural remedies and nutrition. As a true Colorado native, I also have a great passion for the outdoors and spend my free time hiking, snowboarding, snowshoeing, biking, and photography. I love living in Colorado and fully appreciate all of the beauty and sport that this state has to offer.

Tara Schaeffer

Licensed Massage Therapist

I am a recent graduate of the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy, and am a certified neuromuscular therapist. Becoming a massage therapist appealed to me because it enabled me to improve people's quality of life by reducing pain and providing much needed relaxation. I enjoy giving Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and neuromuscular massages, and often incorporate numerous techniques into a massage session so that I can best meet the needs of my clients. A lot of people don't understand why they are feeling pain in certain areas, and I like the challenge of applying my knowledge of referral pain patterns and postural analysis to piece together which specific muscles are bothering a person, what could be the contributing factors, and then developing a treatment plan. I believe massage should be an important part of everyone's wellness plan, as it is preventative medicine, basic maintenance for muscular health, and helps in muscle injury rehabilitation and the healing of chronic pain patterns caused by strained or overused muscles.

When I'm not doing massages, I enjoy spending my time backpacking, climbing, doing yoga, reading, and teaching science classes as a substitute teacher.

Testimonials

Jennie

Aubrey is simply the best! I have always had problems with my back as I work a very physical job. When I first went to see Aubrey 2 years ago she was the first therapist who actually took the time to work on the problem areas, not just use up the hour. Since seeing Aubrey I have regained mobility in ...

Aubrey is amazing! I used to be a massage Groupon hopper, until I found Touch of Balance. She has been my massage therapist for about 2 years now and I can't imagine my life without her! She is so down to Earth and really knows what she is doing. She really cares and it shows in her fantastic work! ...

Charity

I received a gift card to Touch of Balance as a Christmas present from my sister who lives out-of-state. She did some online research & felt that the practice would be a good fit. She was right! I went from one massage per decade, to as often as the budget allows! Would recommend to my friends.

Dominique

Aubrey is amazing at what she does. She really listens to you and focuses on whatever area is giving you the most trouble. Now that I'm pregnant her services are needed more than ever. She is very knowledgeable about what you can and can't use or do during a prenatal massage. She made me feel very c ...

Sara

Amazing massage! A comfortable and clean office space with experienced therapists. I love that they also use quality essential oils during my visit. I never thought I'd be a regular massage client, but Aubrey has changed my mind and I can't imagine not going on a regular basis!

Natures

Every time I get a massage from Aubrey I can feel her focus and intention in the massage. She has a high quality and skilled technique that beats other massages I've received. Her sessions always run an hour (sometimes more!) and I never feel rushed. I highly recommend giving this place a shot - you ...

Megan

I was hesitant to pay for a massage at first because I thought it was a luxury. Now that I've been going for several months, it has become a necessity. I have been Migraine free for 5 months, which is something I never thought would be a possibility! Aubrey is amazing and always exceeds my expectati ...
