Jody Joslin, LMT
Exceptional massage therapy in a beautiful "spa-like" room:
Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Medical, Sports, Craniosacral, Myofascial Release.
I feel fortunate and blessed to be able to work in this beautiful profession. I love that I have the opportunity to offer a service that can bring healing and peace to people; easing someone's pain brings tremendous joy to me. Within a session I draw from many modalities such as Swedish, N.M.T., Sports Massage, Craniosacral, Shiatsu, and Myofascial Release. I utilize techniques from each of these modalities in order to customize the session to fit your individual needs. I have certificates of completion in Medical Massage for both the upper and lower extremities, Intro to Myofascial Wellness, Myofascial release for the pelvis and I am certified in level 1 Craniosacral Therapy. Whether you just need to relax and de-stress or you are in need of a more medically oriented massage, I look forward to the opportunity to be able to work with you. May your life be filled with health and happiness.
Sara Ashline, LMT
I am incredibly excited to begin my massage practice at Heartspace Yoga and Healing Arts.The Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy showed me the importance of taking the time to listen to and nurture both body and mind. I not only wish to help anyone in physical discomfort, but to help others re-new themselves and become more aware of the fascinating organism that we call the body.As well as the training in many modalities that I received from CNWSMT, I have taken classes in Fertility and Infant Massage. Whether you’re looking for an hour-long session for pain relief, or a 15 minute chair massage to relax before returning to a busy schedule, I would be thrilled to be of service to you.
'Ananda' Katherine Sutliff, LMT and Registered Yoga Teacher
Massage Therapy, Owner of Om Shanti Healing Arts www.OmShantiHealingArts.com
I have always been a healer by nature. I am very passionate at what i do, and i love my work. I have been studying healing modalities since my yoga teacher training and Thai-Yoga Massage at the Kripalu Center in 2007. From there i decided to travel to Thailand and deepen my training and learn from Master Pichet. Upon my return i decided i wanted to know more ways to heal through touch, so i started studying Swedish and Therapeutic Massage techniques, trying to build my "Healing Tool Box". I have training in Massage Therapy, Positional Therapy, Kripalu Yoga, Scrubs and Body Wraps, Hot Stone Massage, Energy work, Meditation, Trance Dance, Reiki, Thai Massage, Shamanism and more. Understanding that each person is different, I tailor each session to meet the needs and wants of the people I'm working with creating the ultimate healing experience.
Therapeutic Massage, specialty Myofascial Release
My intention when doing bodywork is to release holding patterns that restrict the free flow of energy in my client’s body. The human being has a remarkable capacity for self-healing once these restrictions are removed from the system. Myofascial Release is the primary technique in my work, with aspects of Swedish massage, soft tissue mobilization, muscle energy techniques and facilitated stretching added as appropriate. I work with clients to provide deep relaxation, to relieve specific pain patterns, to assist healing from injury or surgery, and to promote personal growth. I have a special interest in assisting clients who are struggling with fibromyalgia. Bodywork is good medicine, and therapeutic massage might well offer an attractive alternative to more invasive or more costly forms of treatment. Many clients consider massage a part of their ongoing wellness regimen. By appointment, Monday through Thursday. New clients welcome.
