Healing the World One Body at a Time!

Hello! I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since September of 2008. My passion for massage, however, began way before that! When I was eight years old, my single mom would come home from one of two strenuous jobs, lay on the couch and say "come here magic fingers!". I always loved making her feel better. I learned there could be money in it when I went around the dinner table at the end of the Thanksgiving meal one year and was rewarded with various amounts from aunts and uncles. When I ...

Hello! I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since September of 2008. My passion for massage, however, began way before that! When I was eight years old, my single mom would come home from one of two strenuous jobs, lay on the couch and say "come here magic fingers!". I always loved making her feel better. I learned there could be money in it when I went around the dinner table at the end of the Thanksgiving meal one year and was rewarded with various amounts from aunts and uncles. When I graduated high school, I decided not to go into massage because I feared it becoming a J-O-B. Instead, I went to college and earned my bachelors degree in psychology, which got me a job as a secretary. After several years in the "real world", I finally went back to my roots and attended The Massage Therapy Training Institute (now Wellspring School of Allied Health) in Kansas City, Missouri. I love being a massage therapist and after all these years it has never been a J-O-B! My passion lies in getting people out of pain and helping them to remain pain-free! My intution and my experience with Thai Massage and the MyoKinesthetic System help me accomplish this goal. I believe that it is not always necessary to inflict pain while relieving it, so if you are scared of deep massages and are looking for pain relief or stress relief, I'm  the Massage Therapist for you. If you like the deep work, I'm your massage therapist, too! I adjust every massage based on the person I am working on and their needs in the moment, so no two massages I give are ever exactly the same!

My first experience at the Compassionate Wellness Center was great! I would like to recommend this place to everyone and I will be back as soon as I am able to!

Sara, you might find it enlightening to be worked on in your space. Experience it as a client: the furnace kicking in right at the head was startling at best. Background music was louder than I like. Room temp was on the edge of chilly to get off the warm table into. 4 star on 'skill' only because I am accustomed to a solid deep tissue. What Sara does is unlike anything I have ever had. She has great pressure & found LOTS of spots that talked to me!

Couldn't hear music - no biggie!

I always feel so much better after my visit with Sara! She knows me well and knows just where I need the most work!

Liked that Sara adjusted her Friday time schedule to accommodate my timeframe by moving the appointment earlier that afternoon, her massage technique, warm table, nice soothing music and overall massage. Next time I will ask that she also massage my head. Very nice.
