Kara Ford, has set down roots with the intention of staying put and connected to the community her business operates within. Kara knew she would be a Licensed Massage Therapist before there was a licensure available. At 12-years-old, Dr. John Brimhall held her hands in his and told her she had healing hands, and she believed him. She has spent her life adding as many modalities of healing to her menu and is excited to share them with people seeking relief, reprieve, and healing. After successfully running her own practice for over 20 years, she realized expansion was inevitable and necessary. With hundreds of returning clients with different needs, Kara understood that she needed to offer more than Massage Therapy to provide the type of emotional and energetic work people were requesting. This required a larger space and hiring additional therapists to the team. Upward Light Healing is a space where people can feel safe being vulnerable, can surrender to healing experiences, and feel welcome no matter who they are or how they are hurting. Whether providing Reiki, Cranial Unwinding, or Hot Stone Massage, Kara intuitively finds the places that need the most attention for the mind/body/spirit to work in unison. Outside of the Wellness Center, Kara can be found with her sons, nephews & nieces, as well her Airedale Terrier, Dory, down by the river in search of wild horses or with the people she loves, dancing to live music.

REVIEWS for my Meditation or Bodywork services

I had an injured shoulder on my first visit and she was able to gently and thoroughly release tension from the area without it being painful. I was so grateful! Thanks Kara!

Kara listens to you and your body. You can tell she is in tune and listening to what you need rather than going through a standard procedure. Truly amazing, I felt relaxed but she was able to apply the pressure and deep work needed without causing any discomfort. Quiet and respectful of the relaxation ambiance, music and lighting. Great insight into my body and mind connection. I have gone back already and will continue to be a regular to receive her caring touch and healing energy.

I had a 90-minute deep tissue massage and Kara was phenomenal. This was my first massage with Kara and I already rescheduled.

Look forward to going each time. Kara knows exactly how to help make me feel relaxed & take the pain away. Very relaxing room with soothing lighting & calming music. And last time she had lavender in the diffuser. Perfect!

The space is so inviting and clean. Kara always makes me feel comfortable right away. Great easy communication. Massage was wonderful, my body and mind feel so much better, and I had so much energy the rest of the day!

I moved to Mesa about a year ago, tried several massage places. was ready to give up on massage, it was a waste of money. I was refered to Kara by my personal trainer. WOW finaly a professional who really knows what she is doing. Kara was awesome. she knows how to work that deep tissue massage to really relax and release tight muscles. She also showed me exercise to do for my chronic bad shoulder bringing back mobility I have not had in years. The studio is clean and very inviting. Loved it so much I booked a massage for my wife, and another for me.
