About Gary Remes

 

Gary F. Remes, LMT: I had been introduced to bodywork as a child living with my Ukrainian grandfather, who used his knowledge of the body to rehabilitate both horses and people. My grandfather understood that proper muscle balance was required for healthy and pain-free posture. His understanding, added to what I learned about the musculo-skeletal system as a butcher, and further advanced by what I learned about tendencies and patterns leading to breakdown while working as an auto mechanic, fueled my hunger to learn whatever it took to really make a difference in people’s bodies and to eliminate their pain.

My studies eventually led me to develop an integrated approach I call Neuro-Fascial Re-education (NFR). NFR includes acupressure points, neuromuscular trigger points, myofascial release, unwinding, cranio-sacral techniques, and neuro-emotional kinesiology (addressing the mental-emotional components sometimes related to physical distress).

Gary Remes is new to Boulder County, but not new to massage.       Gary is a second generation massage therapist, who found his love for massage at the age of four. He began training with his grandfather, a massage therapist from the Ukraine trained in Russian massage. With his keen sense to discover body pain through his hands, he has been learning and deepening his intuitive sense of touch since that time.

Gary Remes has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for over 25 years. Gary studied pain reducing techniques with renowned doctors and therapists and received personal training from renowned doctors and therapists, including Dr. Gustave Suffin; Dr. Karen Lee, OMD; Reggie Griffin and Danielle Boyer, Doctors of Chiropractic. Remes also trained in Myofascial ReleaseTM with John Barnes, and worked in his clinic. Gary is a graduate of the St. Jude Medical Center’s Chronic Pain program. Gary has taught NFR at Namti School of Massage.

One of Remes’ attainments is the development and practice of a highly effective technique called Neuro-Fascial Re-Education, NFR.  This method brings the body into a state of homeostasis: balance. Remes has taught this procedure at the Namti School of Massage in Sedona, Arizona, and now teaches it in Boulder, Colorado.

As a licensed therapist for 29 years, Remes’ experience includes employment at many of today’s prominent establishments and private practices, including the Spa Hotel Palm Springs; Mii Amo Spa and Sedona New Day Spa, both in Sedona, Arizona, and the Ko’a Kea Hotel & Resort on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, where he was Spa Manager.  His crafts also include cranial sacral bodywork, Neuro-emotional kinesiology, reflexology, sports massage, deep tissue, Shiatsu, Jin Shin Do and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi.

Gary Remes has moved from Koloa, on the island of Kauai, Hawaii to Colorado, where he offers NFR massage therapy at his office in Boulder Colorado. He resides with his wife and son in Longmont, Colorado.
