How We Got Here

Ann Brooks and Kent Lemburg are seasoned massage therapists with a passion to contribute to the ever evolving massage therapy industry.  Soulstice, was created by these two therapists who have realized this market niche, the desire to provide a valuable service to a population greater than the capabilities of their own private practices, and the willingness to take a risk.

In 1995, a serendipitous encounter led Kent to start seeing the liposculpture patients of a local plastic surgeon.  Dr. Craig Reynolds, MD believed that massage expedited his patients' recovery process, but found that his patients were noncompliant when prescribed post-operative self massage.  What he found was that, in general, patients didn't have the knowledge or understanding to apply appropriate pressure, duration or frequency.

Dr. Reynolds began his collaboration with Kent so that he could rely on the technical skills of a soft tissue specialist to complete the post-operative manual work.  The results were promising.  His patients reported feeling supported and encouraged with hastened recoveries.  Dr. Reynolds began to require that all of his patients receive post-operative massage therapy, realizing that all could benefit.

Upon the completion of massage therapy school in 2001, Ann immediately began her private practice.  She emphasized helping those dealing with chronic pain and needing rehabilitation. At the same time she developed and taught a massage therapy Business Practices course for a Denver-based massage therapy school.  When she had the opportunity to treat her first plastic surgery client in 2004 she intuitively knew that she was doing what she was called to do.

In 2005, Ann merged her former company, TimeOut Therapies, with Soulstice, Ltd. to create more opportunity for peri-operative clients to receive appropriate, highly specialized treatment, complimenting their surgical rehabilitation.
