By Sara Shaeffer
Sara’s mission is to artfully facilitate the natural healing forces within.
Sara's style is detailed and adaptive to benefit every body, since no two are alike. She is able to dive deep into the crevices that are often overlooked to bring radical normalization to the body. She enjoys working outside the box by developing, customizing, and adjusting treatments to the ever changing needs of each individual client. Since graduating from Berkana Institute of Massage Therapy in 2012, Sara found her niche in deep tissue massage after working extensively with the unique musculoskeletal maladjustments faced by the circus arts community. Being an athlete most of her life, and sustaining injuries as a result, she has developed pertinent knowledge of kinesiology, as well as the associated therapeutic techniques.
Sara is trained in a variety of modalities including, but not limited to: Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, myo-facial techniques, inter-oral therapy, aromatherapy, Thai massage, hot and cold stone therapy, cupping, and pre-natal. She is pursuing the full 250- hour advanced Mindful Expressionism® Certification and currently is a competent practitioner of 'Level 1: Extremities, Sciatic, Carpal Tunnel, and Plantar Fasciitis', 'Level 2: TMJ, Jaw, Head, Neck, and Face,' as well as ‘Level 5: Low Back Specialization.’ To learn more about this program: http://berkanainstitute.com/mindful-expressionism/
Massage therapy provided Sara with an opportunity to combine her scientific fascination of anatomy with an outlet for her natural artistic ability. Ideal candidates are those who want to receive professional and artistic therapeutic touch from someone who is deliberate in their work.
