Licensed Massage Therapist in Vancouver, Wa
Sara has been a licensed massage therapist for over 5 years, here in Vancouver, WA. She received her massage education from Everest College, in 2013. While specializing in healing therapeutic massage, she has furthered her education in Gua Sha (a scraping technique that helps release connective tissue), cupping (a more intense technique that involves suction cups) and KT taping (muscle tape that can help relieve pain and swelling, as well as helping with stabilization in sprains and strains).
Knowing firsthand what massage can do for the body is what drew Sara to the massage field. Her personal draw to massage stemmed from her own traumatic experience in 2004, while she was 7 months pregnant with her 2nd child. Having 2 small children, pain wasn’t an option. She had never had a massage before, but was willing to try anything if it meant she would feel better. Her own treatment work allowed her to grasp just how beneficial the work was, not just physically, but emotionally as well. It was then, that Sara realized that massage therapy wasn’t just a pampering ordeal, done at a spa.
Understanding pain was one of the biggest reasons Sara decided to become a massage therapist. After being a stay at home mom for 11 years, all 3 of her children were finally going to be in school full time. It was then that she decided to pursue a career in massage therapy, knowing she would be helping others, and providing for her family. After 9 months of school, Sara passed her exam and started working. One month in, she knew she was doing exactly what she was meant to be doing, loving every minute of it. Sara has always been her happiest caring for and helping others. Massage therapy has allowed her to offer a healing touch of love and compassion to others.
Pregnant moms is a speciality Sara loves! Sara offers expecting mommies the ability to lay on their tummies and fully relax with a pillow just for their belly. She also offers full term labor inducing massage using cleary sage essential oil.

From relaxation to pain reduction, I have worked on a wide variety of clients; babies, children, teens, adults, and elderly.
As a full time boy mom, I love getting out and being active. My boys have taught me to let go and just be in the moments of life, enjoying the silly things, and to not take myself to seriously. A perfect day for me would be a day spent at the river or camping with my family and friends, laughing and loving!
