A deep fascination with anatomy, physiology and botanical healing inspired Shea to follow the path of traditional medicine and pursue a holistic healing education. For the past eight years she has devoted her life to learning various massage and bodywork modalities, herbalism, permaculture, organic gardening, energy healing, yoga as medicine and trauma informed therapy.

Her mission is to live a life of service, devoted to the healing of women and to act as a positive force of change socially and environmentally.

After graduating massage and bodywork school in 2014, Shea became one of the founding members of 5-star massage spa Blazing Lotus Healing House in downtown Asheville. She is now in private practice out of her studio in the River Arts District.

The work she offers as a licensed massage therapist is intuitive, yet technical. Skillful, yet organic. Her specialties include Traditional Thai Yoga Massage and Integrative Massage. When you receive a treatment from Shea you are investing in a uniquely crafted session that is specific to your body and needs. Her approach to holistic healing is heart-centered and meditative.

Currently Shea is planning a trip to Thailand to study womblifting, postpartum care and herbal medicine with Traditional Medicine Healer Homprang Chaleekhana at Baan Hom Samunphrai healing center. This healing art helps aid in postpartum care as well as offers a holistic, natural treatment for a wide range of reproductive health issues; a modality that uplifts overall feminine health and wellbeing. She plans to begin offering womblifting treatments by donation in the Summer of 2020. If you would like to know more about womblifting and how it may help you heal — please contact Shea by private email to shea@thaimassageasheville.com with subject “Womblifting”.
