About Me


     Hello, my name is James Tien, LMT, welcome to my official practice website for Bear Pawz Massage Therapy LLC. I am a NCBTMB Board Certified therapist.

I learned massage therapy at Colorado's own Denver Integrative Massage School, and trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Thai Yoga massage, as well as several additional therapies. I also practice Traditional Usui Reiki. In 2023 I completed training in the first level of Upledger Institute Craniosacral Therapy.


     I graduated from Naropa University's Traditional Eastern Arts BA, Concentration in Tai Chi Chuan in 2017, with a minor in Contemplative Psychology. It is my aim as a practitioner to integrate the relaxing yet powerful principles of Tai Chi with massage therapy.

     I opened Bear Pawz Massage Therapy LLC in order practice my passion for bodywork, help others love and heal themselves, to raise money for charitable causes, and to grow the public's knowledge and professional standards of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. I adopted Alex the Grizzly Bear at Colorado's Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, CO, and am a founder of the Wild Animal Refuge in Springfield, CO.

     It is my goal to offer you the best client centered care and attention as a patron of Bear Pawz Massage Therapy. To host a non-discriminating, non-judgmental space for people of all body types, to receive professional therapeutic or relaxation massages.

     For a short feature on the background of my business pursuit, check out Comfort and Care Matters - Bear Pawz Massage Therapy.
