I love going to see Sarah for a massage. She is a wonderful person and gifted massage therapist. Sarah helped me through an incredibly difficult time when I was going through chemotherapy after two surgeries then healing and gaining my strength back. At times I would crawl out of bed to go see her as I knew I would feel better. What an incredible gift! Sarah has also helped me with various pains and recovering from an accident. I think her hands are magic! I believe the massages I receive are beneficial for my overall well being. - Leslie V. , client

Reflexology similarly uses pressure on the hands or feet to holistically access the vitality of the body. Qigong energy work uses the practitioners energy field to guide and direct the energy in the clients' body. All of these modalities can be integrated into your treatment plan.
