Meet Carissa Harris

Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Master Teacher

Carissa Harris offers Therapeutic Massage and Reiki at hOMe Collective. The desire to make a difference in people’s lives led Carissa to the path of bodywork and energy healing. Her goal is to provide clients with time to relax and rejuvenate on a therapeutic level. Bringing your mind body and spirit back into balance while assisting you towards a healthier pain free life style using Reiki and therapeutic massage. Balancing work, taking care of the family and house, while staying active can put a lot of stress on your body and mind. Therapeutic massage is great whether you’re looking for pain relief from tense, stiff muscles, prevention or recovery from injury, want to enhance exercise performance,  need a “re-set” or are just plain committed to good health. Stress is the number one cause of dis-ease within the physical, emotional and mental body. Studies have shown that both Reiki and massage therapy can provide significant improvement for pain, anxiety and health-related quality of life for those looking to manage their pain.

Carissa (pronounced Car-ee-suh) creates a friendly, peaceful environment at Create Balance Therapeutic Massage & Reiki and takes pride in engaging with her clients in a genuine way while compassionately addressing area(s) of concern; whether that be from work stress, parenting, aging, sports, injury or overall maintenance. She utilizes an intuitive combination of Swedish massage, Deep tissue massage, Sports massage, Aromatherapy, Sound healing and Reiki techniques, always unique to your needs. Carissa’s specialty is a “Therapeutically Relaxing Massage” which consists of a combination of techniques to allow for deep relaxation and rejuvenation while using the right amount of pressure to release those tension areas. The combination of Reiki with Massage Therapy provides deep relaxation, allowing your being to fully let go of whatever you may be holding onto and receive powerful therapeutic and energetic benefits.

As a Colorado native Carissa loves everything outdoors; mountain biking adventures, snowboarding, camping, and hiking. She also love  traveling with her family, dogs and friends, and going to live music. Carissa received a Certificate from the Denver School of Massage Therapy in 2009, and has been a member of the American Massage Therapy Association since beginning her career. From spas, working with athletes, to Chiropractic offices her passion resides within her private practice of Create Balance Therapeutic Massage & Reiki.

In 2015 she finally opened herself up to Reiki, simply to add it as a new modality to better assist her clients. Through daily Self-Reiki her perceptions and awareness have changed and she has become more in touch with who she is and what she wants. Carissa has been able to let go of past hurts and create growth in both her relationships and her whole life. Carissa has come to realize Reiki has surrounded her life since she was a child, and that spreading Reiki to others is a part of her soul purpose.  Carissa became a Certified Reiki Master Teacher in 2016. Since then she began holding Reiki classes, monthly Reiki shares, and volunteering to provide Reiki to cancer patients. She find it to be true that Reiki finds you when you are ready to open your mind and heart to it. This non-invasive hands on (or off) healing technique has been a special service for her to provide to others as its effects can be astounding. Clients who see Carissa for Reiki come in exhausted, stressed, and worn down, some are experiencing  change or a shift in their life and need energetic release, or spiritual guidance. They tend to leave feeling refreshed, relaxed, at ease and lighter, inspired, and grounded yet energized. “A night and day difference.”

“I have to say I was a bit skeptical about Reiki until I felt the pure energy flow through my body. I’m hooked. I’m not sure if it’s because Carissa is a fellow Mt Biker or what but she massages my bike legs better than any other massage therapist I have been to. And she she really focuses on the the areas I ask her to. Carissa is the best!”

“Carissa Harris is a jedi when it comes to understanding the body. Her attention to detail and care is a refreshing reminder on how important frequent self-care is. She found parts on my body I didn’t even know were hurting! Pressure was fantastic and so was her willingness to listen to my body. I can’t wait for my next one!”
