Molly and Mel met in 2014 when they were both employed by the Ritz Carlton, Bachelor Gulch in Avon, Colorado. Both enjoyed their work as massage therapists but found the long commute and the corporate world challenging. Molly and Mel share a belief that massage should not be only a luxury but a therapeutic necessity and therefore should be affordable to all. As a dynamic team they now offer afford

able therapeutic massage treatments at Golden Crane Massage in Buena Vista. Molly Taparauskas:
I grew up in Vermont and moved to Colorado in 2001. I love the mountains and enjoy anything that allows me to be immersed in the beauty here. Since then, I have been practicing massage full-time and I absolutely love it! Continuous education keeps me engaged in my work, which is constantly evolving. I have studied Swedish, Sports, Shiatsu, Myoskeletal Alignment, Polarity Therapy and more. I don't specialize in any one modality but draw from my knowledge base to cater to each individual's needs. Melanie Naber
Originally from Holland, Michigan I moved to Colorado in 2008 to play volleyball for CU Boulder. After college I attended massage school in Tucson, Arizona where I specialized in sports massage and deep tissue work. After finishing school I was hired by the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain in Tucson. After 5 years in Tucson I realized that Colorado would always be home. I was able to transfer to the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch. I decided to live In Buena Vista in 2014 to pursue my dream of being a raft guide. I have been guiding in the summer while massaging in the winter for the last 2 years. I am beyond excited to begin practicing in a community I love so much. My massage work combines deep tissue, myofascial and trigger point therapy among other modalities.
