Dia Couttouw

 Licensed Massage Therapist

Dia came into massage therapy via her aromatherapy training in New Zealand in 2005. She offers a therapeutic, focused, and nurturing approach to her clients, precisely because she feels honored to be given the trust to enter their personal sphere of being. Her sessions may include a blend of deep tissue technique, cupping, myofascial release, and cranio-sacral therapy.

 

As a native Oregonian, she recently returned to the Pacific Northwest, having lived on the high desert plateau of Southwest Colorado for 15 years. She is appreciating the moisture and all that it brings;verdant life in all seasons, rivers and creeks to remind one of the fluidity of life, rich plant aromas rising in the humid and receptive air.

 

Dia joined us at Colfer Chiropractic in 2020, and brings an unmistakable attitude of calmness, understanding, and wellness, peppered with innocent mischievousness. She is a gift to work with.

 

 

Ceara

Office Manager, Billing, and Chiropractic Assistant

 

Starting in the chiropractic world in 2018, Ceara discovered a love for helping people find their way out of pain. Her interest in chiropractic work sparked when adjustments helped her control her chronic migraines. In 2019 Ceara completed her Chiropractic Assistant training through the OBCE, and in early 2020 she took on the role of managing the front office, as well as billing.

 

In addition to working here, Ceara owns a photography business where she captures weddings, families, creates artistic portraits, and dabbles in nature photography. She has some history in website design, logo design, and social media networking. Ceara also creates and sells acrylic paintings, water colors, and drawings.

 

When she isn’t helping create art, Ceara spends time adventuring with her rescued husky, her soon-to-be husband, and her step-son.

Cindy

 Therapeutic Exercise

As a certified personal trainer and group class coach, Cindy helps people over 40 achieve their energy and health goals. She is all about teaching technically safe, effective, and scientifically proven movements that help reduce pain and stiffness, while improving stability and strengthening bone and muscle.

After 25 years in the technology field, Cindy decided to make a transformative career change and became a certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor. She broke her wrist and found out that she had Osteoporosis in her spine and Osteopenia in her hips and legs.

After getting over the shock of the initial diagnosis, she began to research the effects of bone loss, and sought a recommended Physical Therapist. She started consistently exercising, improved her nutrition, used Gentle Vibration Plate (Juvent 1000, now Marodyne LivMD) and Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (an extremely low dosage) One year later the DEXA Bone Density Scan showed that she had no more Osteoporosis, and now only Osteopenia. Her next goal is to have normal bone density and no Osteopenia.

When she is not teaching, you can find her playing with her grandchildren, spending time with friends, and learning all she can about helping people stay healthy and active!
