What are Yurts?

The Yurt is a modern adaptation of the ancient shelter used by Central Asian nomads for centuries. The compact shape of the yurt and combination of lightweight members in tension and compression mean that the structure is highly efficient in maximizing strength while minimizing the use of materials. All massages are performed in our elegant yurts, which have minimal impact on the surrounding soils and, though durable, can be removed without a trace.

Massage Therapist Biographies

Jody Visalli Maddalone, CMT

At the age of 40 I had my first massage. It had a very strong impact on me mentally and physically, and I had the feeling that massage was something I could be good at and that it would be rewarding, purposeful work. A few years later I was able to make the dream come true and enrolled at the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts in Santa Fe. I graduated and was certified in 1993 and have been practicing bodywork ever since. In 2000 I moved back to Colorado and immediately found Orvis Hot Springs, which has been a perfect environment for practicing massage and helping people to feel better and to be more in touch with their bodies.

When asked what kind of massage I do, I usually respond that it is deep tissue, with a Swedish base, and a sprinkling of various other modalities and styles that I have incorporated into my work over the years. I have taken classes in various techniques including Shiatsu, Sports Massage, Stretching, Neuromuscular Therapy, Hot Stone Massage and Lomi Lomi and when they’re put in the pot and stirred, you get a massage by Jody!


Priscilla Pattison, CMT

With 21 years of professional experience, she is sensitive to each client’s needs;from assisting them with relaxation and stress release to muscular pain relief. She specializes in integrative massage which is slow and deep, but uses the client’s level of comfort and direction to determine the depth of pressure and focus of the massage. Her calming presence and her ability to listen to the tissue under her fingers takes the client to that fine line of relaxation and tension release. She was trained and certified in Integrative, Swedish, and Shiatsu at the Boulder College of Massage. She is also a certified Watsu Practitioner certified by the School of Shiatsu and Massage.

Patty Joy Painter

Patty focuses on deep relaxation and stress reduction. She uses a variety of techniques to warm up the tissue, gradually working into deeper pressure and opening the energy flows to achieve the client's desired results. Patty received training beginning in 1988 from: The Therapy Group; the Colorado School of Healing Arts; Heartwood Institute; Nancy Marchant, LVN M.A., I.T.P. Staff JSD; the Acupressure Institute; and Gayle Matula Hubatch, O.M.D., ITP Jr Staff JSD. She is a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals since 1990 and is a Registered Jin Shin Do Practitioner since 1993. Patty has studied herbal healing since 1984.

Vicki Page

With 20 years in the field of bodywork, I have had the opportunity to specialize in many massage techniques, such as, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Aromatherapy Massage, La Stone Therapy Massage, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Massage, Ayurvedic Massage, Thai Massage, Sports Massage, and Reflexology.

All of this training has made my massage what it is today. Relaxing, Rejuvenating, and Therapeutic.

Mindy S. Malin

Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Trager Practitioner

Mindy is committed to providing therapeutic massage and bodywork enhancing the healing of the whole body and to provide each client with ways to become aware of their own potential healing power and ability to heal themselves. Each massage session is tailored to the individual client's need, combing the different modalities of massage and therapeutic bodywork.

As a Certified Trager Practitioner, she looks forward to introducing the trager approach to the clients at Orvis Hot Springs. The Trager approach is an approach to body movement re-education, using light, gentle, non-intrusive movements to facilitate the release of deep seated physical and mental patterns developed from poor posture, musculoskeletal injuries from athletics, motor vehicle accidents and surgery. Trager has been successful with releasing muscle tension due to everyday stress, neck and shoulder discomfort and low back pain. It has also helped to improve the performance of professional athletes to weekend warriors. A trager session is 1 to 1 1/2 hours with no oils or lotions used, the client can be comfortable dressed or in athletic clothing, bathing suit, or underwear.

Mindy's bodywork training began in 1999 at the New York College of Health Professions in New York. She holds a Colorado State Massage License, a New York Massage License, and is Nationally Certified for Massage and Therapeutic bodywork.

Kaadi studied in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1999 and has experience in Swedish Massage, Polarity Therapy, Structural Integration, Lomi Lomi, and various energy modalities. Kaadi's work is deep, structural, & nuturing.

Melissa Countryman, NCMT

I have been practicing massage since 1999. Throughout this time, I have learned to creatively adapt my techniques to meet each individual client's needs. After attending the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in Boulder, Colorado, I immediately began my own private practice. This has enabled me to cultivate dynamic client care skills. Aside from the on-going skills required in maintaining excellent long-term client relations, I have also developed immediate client-connection skills from my experience working in spa and chiropractic settings.

My massage modality-trainings include: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Integrative, Thai, Watsu, Aromatherapy, and La Stone massage. In your session, I will assess your needs for this particular day and draw from any of these massage modalities to best address your needs. My massage style has been described by clients as detailed, firm and deep as well as connected, perceptive and thorough. Clients have also shared with me that they feel listened to, that I intuitivley respond to their body's needs. Some clients have said they feel “inches taller” and “completely and deeply relaxed” after our sessions.
