Armina Familar-Ragsdale

We all rise with the tide.

In 2017, massage helped save my life. I was receiving regular treatments for what I thought was frozen shoulder, and after several sessions was seeing dramatic improvement in mobility and less pain. I was feeling better than I had in several years, which is part of what made my heart attack at age 44 so surprising. A 99% blockage in an artery was able to be opened with a stent but, after that, self care went from a luxury to a necessity. I believe if I hadn't been receiving regular bodywork, ...

In 2017, massage helped save my life. I was receiving regular treatments for what I thought was frozen shoulder, and after several sessions was seeing dramatic improvement in mobility and less pain. I was feeling better than I had in several years, which is part of what made my heart attack at age 44 so surprising. A 99% blockage in an artery was able to be opened with a stent but, after that, self care went from a luxury to a necessity. I believe if I hadn't been receiving regular bodywork, I would have mistaken the pain of the heart attack for the pain of frozen shoulder, and would not now be able to offer the healing of massage to others.


Now, massage therapy is not only a career, but a calling. When I help someone overcome chronic pain, or alleviate the effects of stress, I am able to share the healing benefits I experienced myself. Nothing is more rewarding.

Mina has such great energy and and it's an extra bonus that she is a Reiki Master as well as a massage therapist. I appreciated the mini-facial she gave me as well at the end of my session.

Mina had wonderful technique and is very talented. She used just the right amount of pressure.

Mina is literally the best massage therapist ever. Hands down. I won’t go to anyone else. She is kind, soothing, and truly cares about your well-being on and off the massage table by offering feedback that can make you feel better between massages. I recommend her to all my family and friends (and they love her too!)

She’s magic!

I loved the Swedish Soothe, and I left feeling so relaxed with the muscular tightness gone. Mina is great with communication. She and I agreed on the depth of pressure, and she was always open to any concerns I had.
