Amy's approach to prenatal massage is something every pregnant women should get to experience. Her combination of understanding the body, in addition to her midwifery knowledge lends to an incredible gift to help prenatal women minimize pain, prepare for childbirth, and have a deeper connection to their pregnancy experience.

Amy's prenatal massages are wonderful! She has all the necessary pillows and equipment to make sure pregnant gals are comfy, which for me means face down 😉 She has great intuition when to work the tissue deep and when to be gentle and soothing. Her experience with midwifery and Mayan abdominal massage qualifies her to give great advice and attention to the baby as well. It's such a great experience! I recommend it to all!

Amy has been such a blessing in my life. I’ve been seeing her for Arvigo work and prenatal work and I feel so lucky to have her. She is kind, supportive and so incredibly intuitive. I always feel better after seeing her, both because of the massage and because of the time she spends connecting with me and understanding where I am at in my body. The Arvigo work was instrumental in helping me work through some blockages around getting pregnant and the prenatal work has been amazing for my body and my mental health. Amy is a wonderful human being and practitioner! Go see her!

I worked with Amy from 20 weeks into my pregnancy until postnatal. She is an expert on Arvigo therapy and has trained many of the local practitioners. She was nurturing and incredibly knowledgeable on all things surrounding childbirth. (She was a midwife for many years!) She also does prenatal classes. I went to one on Anatomy and it was really informative.

Amy is a skilled massage therapist, and weaves her experience as a midwife, a massage therapist and a teacher of Mayan abdominal massage into providing a multi-layered approach to touch. In the beginning of the session she really takes her time to understand what is happening with your body. She is curious, strong and careful in her touch. In my time working with Amy, she has relieved symptoms of pelvic and abdominal discomfort. She has a gift of both exact knowledge of the body ,and an intuitive approach that weaves a beautiful fusion of care.

Amy has been helping me with a prolapse issue for the past 4 months. She's an amazing resource--warm, capable, and professional. Her work isn't like any other massage you may have had. Grounded in years serving as a midwife, Amy "sees with her hands" and is able to directly support women's bodies like no one else.

I have been seeing Amy throughout my pregnancy and I cannot say enough about her work. She’s an amazing body worker and her techniques truly bring peace and ease to my pregnancy. As a retired midwife and extremely experienced message therapist I feel safe and supported in her sessions. She is incredibly positive and knowledgeable and she holds a very special space for women and the importance of self-care. I would highly recommend Amy over and over again.

I have been seeing Amy for prenatal massage for a few months, and I have really felt a difference in my comfort level even days after I see her. Her abdominal massage is so comforting, and I was very glad to learn how to do it myself in her Belly Basics class. Amy not only provides expert care, but she is also offers great insights for self-care at home. I highly recommend her services!
After a few sessions with Amy, I began to notice my body responds in a similar way compared to a pelvic specialized PT. I have had a great deal of sacrum and pubic bone pain in my second pregnancy, and am really impressed how my body responds and holds after each 90 min bodywork session. I’ve been getting instant and lasting improvements every time I receive! I’m in awe how a massage that makes me melt and feel SO good also provides such therapeutic relief and benefits. I feel many old and longstanding tensions in my body beginning to change thru my work with Amy. I can feel areas/muscles that have wreaked havoc for years essentially “reorganizing”, and my whole body feeling more comfortable to live in and mother thru.
I so appreciate all you do for the world! Practicing mayan abdominal massage has brought me into deeper relationship with my body and transformed how I show up to myself and thus to the world. Amy is a well of generosity, and gracefully translates her deep listening into tangible healing. In relationship with Amy, one feels met and held. I am grateful to have learned this powerful technique from her and benefit from her expertise!
I began seeing Amy Colo for chronic diaphragm and rib pain. I’d often been told to try Mayan Abdonimal massage but I was hesitant. I’ve tried at home and it never feel good or even relieving. After one visit with Amy I got a lovely massage, homeopathic remedies and tips on how to preform self care. Faithfully performing the massage Amy taught me worked, I was pain free in a matter of 10 days, I was amazed. Boldly, I stopped the massage for 8 days, and ended up back in the same painful spot as before. Two days of massage and I was back to pain free. This experience has proven to me that massage and the tools Amy has given me have changed my life. I cannot recommend Amy and her skilled hands enough.
Prenatal massages with Amy have been an invaluable source of support and nourishment for my changing body. Her warm and calming presence and gifted touch have allowed me to easily drop in to let go and receive the healing and realignments my body most needs. In our first session I had been dealing with pain in my tailbone and she was able to easily and gently assist the adjustment that needed to take place, which allowed for immediate relief. As a fellow bodyworker, I can say with confidence that a session with Amy truly invites the body into deeper states of relaxation and rejuvenation, and feels like the kind of care I aspire to provide my clients. She is thorough, intuitive, and knowledgeable in her approach. Thank you Amy for supporting baby and I in experiencing a peaceful and easy pregnancy!
I saw Amy for prenatal/postnatal massage during my second pregnancy, and continue to work with her to manage chronic back pain. Amy has a deep knowledge of women’s bodies at different stages, and brings her long-time experience as a midwife and caregiver to her practice. I am so grateful to have Amy as a healer and resource in the Boulder wellness community — I highly recommend working with her!
