Meet Crystal Joy

A Massage Therapy professional of over 20 years, CJ spent 10 years of that time at the St. Regis Spa in Aspen, Colorado where she was Core Top Therapist. She also worked at the Aspen Club and Sports Medicine Institute and the Ritz-Carlton. CJ built an out-call business in Aspen, Vail and Denver and following that, she worked at the Colorado Center for PhotoMedicine, working with post-surgical patients.

Meet Erika

I moved to Heber in 2011 with my children to join my parents in the place my father was raised; I didn’t grow up here but my roots are here and Heber Valley is where I now call home.  I wanted to work in healthcare since I was a small child and had a strong desire to help others be well. After working in hospitals and clinics most of my adult life, I was able to finally enroll in school at Utah College of Massage Therapy and begin my dream career! 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!


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.

Massage Services

All services include hot towels, plus foot scrub if desired, and a warm cup of hot tea following your session if you’d like to relax for a few moments after your session.  At this time we are unable to offer our wonderful foot soaks due to health department restrictions.

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.
