Dr. Andrea Whyte Griffin, D.C.
Andrea W. Griffin, D.C. is the daughter of Lucy Whyte Ferguson, D.C. and grew up in Taos, NM. She headed east after high school and studied Interdisciplinary Arts and Theater and has a BA from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. While she was continually influenced by her mother’s work and as a teenager worked at Colonias Chiropractic Center as a receptionist, she was never pressured to follow in her mother’s foot steps. Entirely on her own she began to gravitate towards body work and found that it came rather naturally.
Andrea went to massage school at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Flagstaff, Arizona and was a licensed massage therapist for four years. She then decided to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic, Florida campus, and graduated in December of 2015.
She now resides in Arroyo Hondo, NM and is raising 2 small children with her husband.

"Helping you find freedom of movement through the release of myofascial pain"
Daniel Pretends Eagle, LMT
East meets West in my practice. Modern therapeutic knowledge, mindfulness and the ancient wisdom of Qigong and Acupressure combine to release physical restrictions and strengthen the flow of energy throughout the body’s meridians.
Our ability to heal ourselves is wondrous and myofascial release is the key. Fascia, the connective tissue found throughout the body, surrounds every cell and muscle fiber, maintaining our structure, facilitating movement. Stress, trauma and past injuries are all stored in the fascia. When we free the fascia…deep healing becomes possible. The lengthening achieved by myofascial techniques creates the spaciousness in mind, body and soul that allows each client’s innate wisdom to begin the process of self healing. I’m not trying to “fix” something or impose my own concept of structural integrity upon a client. My goal is to assist the client in cultivating their inherent physical, mental and spiritual balance. As a result, I’ve been able to help clients successfully manage chronic pain, recover from injury, and experience deep and lasting relaxation.
Effective manual therapy expresses the perfect balance of science and intuition.The path to well being is a path we walk together.
In addition to being a licensed massage therapist I am also an instructor in the Medical Massage program at the University of New Mexico where I have received a commendation from the UNM School Of Medicine for teaching excellence in the treatment of myofascial pain.
Nadine Lollino, LMT
After graduating from college with degrees in dance therapy and psychology, Nadine went directly to study at The Chicago School of Massage Therapy, and concurrently into an extensive yoga education in Astanga and Iyengar yoga. She has been a practicing massage therapist and yoga teacher since 2002. Nadine still works as a dance artist, and teaches a variety of movement classes online and at TaoSatva in Taos. Her massage work is greatly influenced by her study of the kinesthetic body through yoga and dance. Nadine’s massage techniques include neuromuscular, myofascial, and lymphatic drainage therapies as well as intuitive listening. She is also trained in pre-natal massage, includes cupping when appropriate, and has experience working with migraines. Client feedback includes sensing safe space, feeling relaxed, and that they have learned something.
“I first started see Nadine in 2010 on the referral of a friend who had issues with her back. I have spinal stenosis which can be tricky and, as an endurance cyclist, I needed a therapist I could trust not to aggravate the condition. After just one session I was hooked. Nadine slowly and carefully worked around, and in, the areas of tightness and pain. Targeted and skillful, she treated my tight areas without any random, unneeded pressure. She released my psoas muscle, which many therapists are hesitant to do, and talked to me about stretches and strategies.
All these years later I am still a regular and won’t let anyone else touch my back. Nadine’s careful work, which now includes cupping, has allowed me to avoid medication and continue to cycle at a high level. Nadine does not have a “one method fits all” practice. Unlike many I have tried that start at the top and work their way down in a scripted, methodical process, Nadine takes the time to individualize her therapy and solve problems.” Dian Sourelis
