Peter Halvorson, DC, BS, LMT


Dr. Peter Halvorson has been involved in drug-free healthcare also known as Alternative and Complementary Medicine (CAM) since the late 1970’s when as a teenager he studied foot reflexology and explored a vegetarian diet. He discovered Chiropractic healthcare as a patient in his twenties, has been a Massage Therapist since 1993 and recently completed a three and half year program for his Doctorate of Chiropractic. As a result he has realized the great importance of a healthy brain and neurological system and the damaging effects of poor diet and stress. Chiropractic is essentially neurologically based, and the burgeoning neurological research of the past twenty years has shown that we must move from ‘pain and chasing symptoms’ to ‘brain health and finding cause’ as this is truly the source of a capable immune system and a sound physical body.

Dr. Halvorson has worked with Olympic athletes, a World Cup ski racer, and has himself been a top ten triathlete and age group competitor in running and Nordic ski events. He is particularly fond of Chiropractic, as through its care he has avoided three ‘recommended’ surgeries, yet continues to enjoy a mobile, pain free life. His outdoor pursuits include Alpine and backcountry skiing, trail running, Nordic skiing, kayaking, and mountain adventures in Colorado, Asia, and South America.

Dr. Halvorson has led a colorful and adventurous life, having travelled the world through 24 countries and many continents; from McMurdo Station, Antarctica to Mt. Denali in Alaska, and from Tibet to Paris. He has also studied and practiced yoga, and completed several months’ long meditation retreats. Along the way he has met extraordinary people, cultures and ideals and through these experiences he brings a wealth of knowledge, both studied and experienced, to his unique outlook on healthcare. He marvels at the amazing ability of the human body to perform, recover, change and heal. He is happy to share this knowledge and guide you on your own path towards a productive, mobile, pain free life.

Whether you have aches and pains all over, just need to relax, have a specific problem or two, or want to buy a package and get work once-a-month Miranda will customize your massage to fit your goals. She has treated everything from frozen shoulder, sciatic and muscle pain, limited range of motion in the neck, headaches, backaches, to achy tired feet. She brings a compassionate heart and knowledge of anatomy and incorporates these strengths into wonderful results for her clients to enjoy. She loves being able to build a connection with her clients and see the improvements that their bodies have made through her work.

Even at a young age Miranda she could see the relief that massage brought to her family and friends. Since Miranda knew this was her calling, she graduated high school early, and immediately enrolled in Denver School of Massage Therapy, graduating in March of 2014. Since then, she has worked for businesses ranging from a luxury spa at Beaver Creek Resort, to a locally owned spa in Littleton. Recently, she has decided to work independently and has found this move to be beneficial to both her and her growing list of established clients. She works most days and finds that weekends are great for a lot of people!

She is very interested in Trauma Touch, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Myofascial Release, and is adding more modalities soon. She is very excited to be working alongside Dr. Halvorson and learning even more about the body and aid in her client recovery and pursuit of a great quality of life.
