Healing yourself is connected with healing others. - Yoko Ono

My short story:

I first felt the benefits of massage therapy in my teens for a spinal disorder.  After the first few sessions it was immediately clear that I wanted to bring the therapeutic benefits of touch and holistic wellness to those that were searching for the same.  Through my various life and work experiences, formal and personal education and research, I’ve managed to create a therapeutic model that centers around mind/body awareness, personal health accountability, and wholistic heal...

How is Massage By Carey different from others?

Massage By Carey is a sole practitioner massage and cupping “studio”. This means:

  • This isn’t a massage mill, and you aren’t just a number. I get to know you personally and all massage appointments are completed by 1 therapist….me!
  • I value your time and money.  If you book a 60 minute massage then you will receive 60 minutes of hands-on time. You don’t book a 1-Hour massage and only get 50 minutes of hands-on time and 10 minutes for interview and changing. I can accomplish a lot in 10 minutes and I would rather give that to you then as a way to easily book “on the hour”.
  • By offering flat fee rates, massage sessions are fully customized and all-inclusive in order to provide an exceptional experience.
  • As the name “studio” suggests, I am an artist as much as a healthcare practitioner.  Performing bodywork is more than just an understanding of anatomy and technique. A great bodywork practitioner has an immense amount of intuition, positive energy and is 110% present.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Jason on Aug 19
Very attentive, knowledgeable and professional!
by Frank on Aug 10
Carey's new in-home massage room is great! If you didn't drive into her residential neighborhood and enter her home, you would never know that the massage room was in her home. Carey always listens to what areas you want her to concentrate on and to any comments that you have during your massage. She is good at making recommendations and genuinely cares about making you feel better.

Cupping massage made me feel amazing the next day. I have been free of my chronic lower back pain for two days now. I look forward to using Massage By Carey regularly to stay healthy and treat my body the way I should. Carey is very knowledgeable about the human body that exceeds massage therapy. Looking forward to getting back on the right track and feel better.

Very relaxing stress relief. My back was a knot of tense (overly) muscles & I could the "knows" coming out of my back as Carey did her treatment. Very good and I would highly recommend her. Also, her feedback on things to do to keep the muscles loose and develop some strength in them was great. More than just a massage but a total scientific experience for mind and body. Get those chakras open!

Carey is wicked knowledgeable on way more than just massage. It was great to speak with someone that wasn't cookie cutter In their responses.
by Amanda on Jul 17
Loved it all!!! Carey let me know when I might experience discomfort due to the cupping and deep tissue work she did. That helped me prepare and adjust my breathing so I could get as much healing as possible out of my visit. She is very knowledgeable and comforting.
