Meet Erika

I moved to Heber in 2011 with my children; I didn’t grow up here but my family roots are here and Heber Valley is where I now call home.  I wanted to work in healthcare since I was a child and had a strong desire to help others be well. My healthcare background has enriched my massage practice with a focus on structure of the body and proper alignment and movement. In addition, I have spent much time learning about energetic modalities such as Reiki, and exploring the powerful mind-body connection. My goal in every massage is to bring bodywork and energy work together to provide the most deeply relaxing and healing treatment possible. I love what I do, so I try my best to share my passion for healing touch in every session.

When I met Crystal Joy, I knew immediately that we shared the same philosophy of healing and service to others, and I am beyond grateful and blessed to work with her in the most magical, serene space I have set foot in. We are so excited for our growing practice and look forward to all of the new changes and services we’ll be able to offer you in beautiful Heber Valley!


Meet Nicolas

Nicolas has been a practicing massage therapist for over 15 years, graduating at the top of his class in 2006. From the very beginning of his career he developed an interest in deep tissue work, which eventually became his primary focus. He found success working in a clinical setting with many different chiropractors until starting his own practice in Utah Valley. 

Nicolas has recently developed his own massage technique that combines elements of sports massage, deep tissue, and traditional Thai massage. The result is something that his clients praise as “totally awesome” and something they have “never experienced in a massage before.” He has also recently embraced a more energetic part of his practice–including personal development coaching and a men’s program–bringing a well-rounded healing experience to all of his clients, both physically and spiritually. 

Nicolas is originally from southern Idaho and grew up on a farm. He is married to a supportive wife and together they are raising four children in Prove, Utah. 

Meet celeste

Hi, my name is Celeste. I’m 24 and moved to Utah from Alaska in 2018 and started my journey as a massage therapist. I attended Utah College of Massage Therapy. Needless to say, we got a lot of one on one attention and we’re able to learn things most classes wouldn’t. This opportunity gave me the chance to not only learn the basics of massage but also inner mouth, postnatal, as well as longus colli work. My formative years were spent all over the US. Both of my parents were military which gave me a very colorful background. A few rules to live by as a military child: if you’re not 15 minutes early you’re 15 minutes late, or: make your bed every morning, at least you’ll have accomplished one thing for the day. I am all about efficiency and positivity! Good things happen when we put forth an effort towards ourselves and our well-being.

My top priority as a therapist is to make sure my clients get the best treatment possible. As someone who has had many health ordeals in my life ranging from M.O.D.I to seizures and more serious conditions; I know what it is like to be in pain and uncomfortable. Massage has always helped me to get back up and fight by giving me that extra bit of energy to keep going. I have found that through massage I am able to help my clients relieve pain, educate them on better ways to serve their bodies and create a safe space to open up. In order to do this, I continue to study massage and different techniques constantly to keep my client’s experience fresh! I wholehearted believe that I was made for this, and I love everything about my job and clients. I want to make sure you get the best of the best so that you can focus more on what matters to you.


Meet Jo

Jo’s love of yoga was ignited when she discovered true yoga is not about poses or postures—rather learning more about “the self.” Jo witnessed healing through the power of breath and movement—like medicine, as she was wading through a time in her life when she had to rebuild. Breath with movement brought her to the power of the present moment. She discovered when she was on the mat she couldn’t stray too far into the uncertainties of the future. This self-discovery and love for the yoga practice pushed her to share this light with others. Jo uses movement as a tool to witness and release trapped emotions in the body as well as witnessing conversations in the mind. Jo is drawn to share the healing she has experienced with others, using movement as medicine. Each class is an invitation for you to see yourself.

Jo is medicine for mind body and soul; the whole of you. She provides a safe space to be vulnerable, authentic, messy, connected (however you show up on your mat). Her joyful wild is contagious and healing. It is through her techniques as a practitioner, I found healing on a new level.

I learned that breath and uninhibited movement can connect you to your deepest self and release deep seated wounds. Jo gave me permission to discover these truths for myself. Her class and humaness is unmatched. I’ve had a passion since i required healing myself…about 4 years ago?

About Massage

Massage is one of the oldest healing treatments used by man as far back as 3,000 years ago. Smooth, rhythmic strokes and kneading of the body’s tissues increases circulation to the muscles and cells. This cleansing and stimulation of the tissue also releases toxins and helps to improve energy flow and healing throughout the body.

Benefits of Massage

Massage can relieve symptoms of fatigue, reduces tension, loosen tight muscles, increase flexibility and range of motion, calm the nervous system, and promote a sense of relaxation and renewed energy. It has also been known to diminish chronic pain, lower blood pressure, and lower heart rate. Massage can be used in conjunction with many therapies, both physical and emotional.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Do people fall asleep?

This is your time from start to finish, so if you would like to sleep, feel free to rest! If you would like to talk, that is acceptable as well. Some people are more comfortable talking and others prefer silence–either way is the right way.

What should I eat before?

It’s better to have a light meal and plenty of water before your massage. If you schedule a session with any type of work where it’s preferred to come on an empty stomach, your therapist will discuss that prior to your visit.

can I drink alcohol after?

Yes, however we strongly suggest waiting. It is always recommended you stay hydrated and drink plenty of water afterwards, this helps in flushing out toxins released during the session.

Is it normal to become emotional?

Through massage therapy it’s possible to experience sudden emotions such as happiness, sadness, anger, confusion, anxiety. Just remember you are in a safe place, and let your therapist know if it becomes overwhelming. This type of response to massage may happen during any session, but it’s more common to when a client is receiving more frequent and deeper work.

Once again, these sessions are about you, and only you – so take whatever time is needed and breathe.

What to Expect in your massage session.

Your therapist will leave the room while you get ready for your session. You undress to whatever you are most comfortable in. Some prefer to be fully disrobed, while many leave on underwear.  Women usually remove their bra to allow the therapist to work on the back and shoulder area without getting massage oil or lotion on the bra. You will always be draped modestly under a sheet and blanket, and the therapist uncovers only the area to be worked on.  Although not ideal, it is usually possible to work on areas through clothing and/or sheets. Your therapist can talk to you about options if you have any concerns.

how do you know what type of massage that you need?

You can discuss that while making your appointment, and when you arrive your therapist will also discuss what your needs are for each session to decide what type of work to do. Always let your therapist know what kind of pressure you would like before a session. They will check in to make sure you’re comfortable with the pressure, temperature, etc.  Some types of deeper work can be more uncomfortable, and it’s extremely important to communicate with your therapist to avoid possible injury. Be aware that deep tissue work can be contraindicated for some medical conditions or medications. Please be sure your health history is updated and complete each session.

Can I have a massage if I'm pregnant?

Generally, yes. Mountain Elite has both options for side lying or lying prone depending on the condition of the individual during their pregnancy.

However, deep tissue work during pregnancy is contraindicated, as is work around certain pressure points on the ankle and foot. Lighter pressure must be used around the lower back and hip areas for safety.

When filling out the client intake form, you may specify if you have any questions or concerns beforehand.


“It is a healing experience when you walk in to CJ’s office. Quiet, serene and very calming. She knows anatomy and soothes my aches and pains…”
