About Us

Our Story

Balanced Therapeutics was founded by Larken Petardi in 2018. She saw a need to support the Denver community in finding balance in their crazy, work and fun filled lives. Denver is such an amazing place to be! Larken’s main goal is to provide therapeutic relaxation by developing a customized massage and skin treatment plan for each client. She will work with individual needs and her knowledge of an assortment of therapeutic techniques to bring about a state of physical, mental and social well-being.

Larken’s passion for full body wellness started while in high school. Because of a repetition injury from competitive swimming she started seeing a chiropractor weekly. When this did not improve her problem, she found and fell in love with massage therapy, which helped her continue in her sport career. An interest in the human body and wellness continued at the University of Connecticut where she graduated in 2011 with studies in kinesiology, psychology, and health science.

After college, Larken moved to Colorado to enjoy the mountains and be outside daily with her puppy. During this time she found her previous experience, health focused education plus a passion to work with people was pointing her to massage therapy. She graduated from the Colorado School of Healing Arts with an AOS in Massage Therapy with certification in lymphatic drainage, sports massage and reflexology. Since that time Larken has become a Reiki 3 practitioner and studied Thai massage therapy with Rob Martin. She also became a certified ashiatsu therapist with DeepFeet Therapy. 

Recently Larken decided to go back to school to add more to her practice. She found the School of Botanical and Medical Aesthetics. She is so excited to add this element to her practice to bring about whole body wellness.
