Liz Long, CNMT, LMT

Liz graduated from the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy in April 2011. Her passion for massage as well as her love of learning compelled her to enter massage from an administrative standpoint and go back to school for business. She still performs massage occasionally but much prefers to focus on seeing the office running smoothly so the other therapists can focus on what’s important: The Client.
She is a fan of reading, tea, Colorado, family time and working at Advanced NMT where she says “I’ve never worked somewhere where everyone was so happy to come in and see us. It is just fantastic to work in such a positive environment. If you’re thinking of coming in, or have any questions, give us a call and I will be happy to answer all of your questions!” (Return to top)
