The Therapist


Hi! My name is Daniela Schreckengost, a licensed Massage Therapist since 2006 and proud owner of Colorado Springs Therapeutic Massage. I specialize in recovery massage for injuries and surgeries.

I was born and raised in Germany and attended Medical Massage School and Physical Therapy School there. My physical therapy background has most certainly helped me understand our human anatomy even better and has allowed me to become a specialist in addressing a wide variety of injuries and surgeries.

Right at the beginning of my massage therapy career, I suffered from overuse injuries in my thumbs and elbows. Devastated about the pain and almost defeated I decided to self-massage my sore arms and recovered from the injury after several weeks of self-treatment. This success I experienced on myself made me fall in love with Massage Therapy even more and is the reason why I am still practicing to this day.

I met my husband, now retired from the US Army, in 2012 through friends and we later got married in 2014. We got stationed in Colorado Springs in 2017 for his last duty station, and we immediately fell in love with the mountains and people here. We both decided this is the right place for us to settle down after years of traveling with the military.

I am grateful to be able to practice as a Massage Therapist and Injury and Surgery Recovery Specialist. This has been the main focus of my entire career, and it is my mission to continue on for many more years to come and help people recover from an injury or surgery and finally get some relief from their pain and speed up their recovery.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or to schedule an appointment with me. I look forward to meeting and working together soon.

Injury


Injuries can happen due to an accident or overuse.

Let me talk a bit more about the overuse injuries. When we perform the same motions on a frequent basis we are more likely to suffer from injuries. These injuries happen because our muscles and tendons are overworked.
Massage and the many different techniques and modalities can help to keep those overworked muscles healthy and perform at their best.

Untreated injured muscles can not perform at 100% and other muscles will have to take over the extra workload and more than likely get injured as well. Self-care in form of massage, stretching and such has been successful in the recovery of those injuries and can help many get the pain relief they seek and back to their living their life.


Surgery


Sometimes we just need a surgery. And sometimes we want it to improve quality of life.

And let me tell you Massage is a great way to help your body recover. Especially Cupping and Lymphatic Drainage Massage can help you recover much faster.

Massage can help reduce swelling and helps with the appearance and flexibility of scar tissue.  On top of pain reduction and better range of motion. Why not feel better faster?!


Recovery


Because of your unique physiology, I customize every session to you and your goals and needs. Different pains, injuries and surgeries require different solutions. Different techniques help achieve those goals.

  • Cupping works with negative pressure and lifts the tissue. It can help relieve tight muscles, reduce swelling and bring fresh oxygen and nutrients into the tight area. 
  • To loosen the tight knots and reduce the pain we can use a technique called Trigger Point Release.
  • To increase motion in your stiff joints we can incorporate the Lomi Lomi Nui Massage which is great to help with this particular problem.
  • Lymphatic Drainage Massage can help reduce the swelling and inflammation in the injured area or speed up the recovery after a recent surgery.
  • The heat of the Hot Stone Massage penetrates deep into the layers of the muscles and can help them relax.

These are just some of the techniques that can help with different problems.  Every session will be customized to your goal and specific need and physiology and many different techniques can be combined into one session, or a course of sessions, to help you achieve your goals.
