Sarah completed her New York State massage training at the top of her class. She has since practiced at spas, orthopedic massage clinics, and chiropractic centers in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Sarah found her passion for massage therapy while pursuing a BFA in acting, dance, and voice. It was then that she discovered massage was a useful tool for isolating and eliminating tension within her own body. This helped her as a performer by allowing her greater ease, precision, and functionality in movement. During this time she honed her awareness and developed a method of observation that allows her to listen to what is going on in the body. The profound effects of this work carried over into her life, and after years of using herself as a study subject she became inspired to share her unique perspective on bodywork with others seeking relief from pain, improved range of motion, and ease of movement.
