Bridging the Gap between Pilates & Physical Therapy
Lisa Recker, MPT
I moved to Steamboat Springs fifteen years ago where I first began my career in physical therapy. In 1999, I left to further my education in this field. I graduated in 2001 from Mount St. Mary’s College of Los Angeles with a master’s degree in physical therapy. I returned to Steamboat where the majority of my experience has been in out patient therapy clinics where I developed a special talent for manual therapy. Combined with the skills of our team of professionals at Align we provide a comprehensive approach for injury rehabilitation and prevention. At Align we believe it is our mission to promote overall wellness.

Nicole Olexa, LMT
Mountain bike racing led Nicole to massage therapy as a way to stay injury free and recover well. In 2005 she attended the Center of Advanced Therapeutics in Denver, CO to study massage therapy and has been practicing and continuing her education in massage since.
Nicole has had the honor of working on many professional triathletes, cyclist and runners including the Australian National Triathlete team. Since having her own two children Nicole became interested in pre and post natal massage as well, adding to her list of modalities. It is also her pleasure to massage people that are in chronic pain, having temporary musculoskeletal issues, or just needing to relax.
Nicole is state licensed, nationally certified and specializes in Neuromuscular, deep tissue, sports, pre and post natal, treatment focused massage therapy.
