Our Massages

Deep Tissue Massage


Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes and those who sit for long periods of time. 


Swedish Massage


The goal of Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases the build up of muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body.

The receiver experiences a whole new dimension of relaxation... A Massage unlike any other and the "SYNERGISTIC" benefits of Soothing Warmth, Custom Pressure and Advanced Massage Techniques.

Diane Krane, LMT


Diane received her Massage Therapy certification from Essentials Therapeutic School, here in Grand Junction, CO. The Instructor only allows for small class sizes, so she received a lot of focused, one-on-one instruction. She graduated in May 2019, and obtained her license in June 2019. She is very excited, passionate, and has a strong concentration in outcome-based massage. This means her focus is more on the end result rather than it just feeling good.  

Diane  has  a  very  intuitive touch,  is  highly  professional,  and  Start.  Massage  &  Bodyworks  couldn’t be  more  excited  to  have  her  join  the  team!

Before she was a Massage Therapist, Diane was in college for her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. While attending her Massage Therapy Program, she helped her boyfriend with his landscaping company. She also is a Mother of a wonderful girl who just started Kindergarten. Both her Daughter and Boyfriend are her heart and soul.

Taelour Wagler, Owner/LMT


Taelour graduated from IntelliTec, Grand Junction’s Massage Therapy Program in Oct. of 2012 and met the State requirements to obtain her license in Feb. 2013. She worked in the Massage field in various settings including independently and in Chiropractic and wellness clinics prior to launching Start. Massage & Bodyworks in October 2016.

She has been trained in many modalities, but Neuromuscular Therapy, Deep Tissue, and Therapeutic work are what motivates and drives her the most.

Helping to increase your quality of life and experiences is something Taelour is very passionate and fulfilled by.  Taelour stumbled upon Cryoskin and the many and drastic benefits it offered in July of 2019 and then pursued how to add it to the practice, completing the requirements in September 2019.

Outside of Start. Massage & Bodyworks, Taelour is a busy Mom, enjoys the abundant outdoor activities that this Valley has to offer, and dabbles in many,  varying  creative and artistic outlets.
