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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Wellness, or Coaching services

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.

Mina is very thorough before the massage to pinpoint your exact needs. One of the best (if not THE best) massages I've ever had. I've gone to her twice and will definitely be going back. She makes sure her pressure is to your satisfaction and uses hot stones to make sure she gets the knots out if that's what your goal is. I've fallen asleep on her table twice because I was so relaxed. If you're looking for a great massage from someone who listens to your needs and gives you exactly what you ask for, book her now!

I feel like Mina used every skill she had to relieve some shoulder pain I was having. I will be back many times in the future.
