Sara is passionate about many forms of healing and appreciates each individual's journey toward wellbeing. She has witnessed many remarkable transformations from combining massage and yoga techniques for optimal rehabilitative results. Since beginning her practice, Sara has worked alongside chiropractors, acupuncturists, and physical therapists, deepening her passion and curiosity for discovering new ways of healing the body from injury and dis-ease.

The modalities that Sara incorporates and has found to be most effective include Orthopedic Massage, Myofacial Release, Deep Tissue, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), Cranio-Sacral, Swedish Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Muscle Energy Techniques.
In her free time, Sara enjoys yoga, live music, being a mother, and spending time with friends and family exploring the Pacific Northwest in all of its breathtaking beauty.
